123 Challenge - MARCH

Hi everyone,

Last night I tackled 123 Challenge.... ooooooo, it's a tricky one I reckon,,....

the word "1,2,3",
the colour "METALLIC BLUE" and
"use something organic" 

Luckily I had an AZURE blue Smooch ink... which i painted on everything - on flowers, on resin (then sealed the colour with dimensional magic), on chipboard, on lettering, on buttons, plus managed a few flicks from the end of the brush!

Here it is:

Papers: MME and Glitz
Letters: Lilybee, Fancy pants, heidi swapp
Embellishments: Skeleton leaves, buttons, chipboard frame.  Speciality flower (with feather) and resin from HANDMADE HALO.
{organic items are the leaves and feather.}


Love that Bruno Mars song - seemed to fit with this photo of my Mum and I!

Thanks for looking!
