Blues and Greens

Oh I have had fun with this. I started with Soft Goth Night from Sweet Pea stamps and coloured her with Distress Inks (Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey and Tumbled Glass), adding a bit of Sakura Stardust to the moon. then cut and mounted her onto pale blue card The circle background is painted with Sarburst Stains in Azure Seas and Sea Mint Green, then this was mounted onto pale green card that has been Cuttlebugged with the Divine Swirls folder and all then mounted onto pale blue card. The flourishes are die cut (Sizzix Decorative Flourish Set) with little pearls added and Wild Orchid roses that have been sprayed with Kiwi and Riptide Glimmer Mists. The tiny little sentiment is half of a stamp from a Penny Black set and the ribbon and pins are from my stash. I'm not saying I got messy making this but you should see the colour of my hands, LOL.
I am entering it into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Petals and Pearls
Sweet Pea Stampers - Swirls and Flourishes
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Sketch
