CSI #26 'The Jewels'

Once again I am going to tell you how much I love the challenge at CSI this week......I know I bang on about this place every week, but seriously, you have to go and see what the DT come up with! It truly is, in my opinion, the most inspirational place as the styles are so diverse :0)

Anyhow, this week is the last of the royal challenges and once again Debbi has created the most beautiful colour palette.

I have used a photo of my DD's who are very much my jewels in this crown of life :0)

Lots of playing around with masks this week! A TH crown mask misted with black, the grid using white gloss embossing paste and the circle (my take on scallops and icing) using pearl paste. Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist in Firefly and the white mist I had made but has gone really thick but I like the look!

Felt flower is an old Heidi Swapp one, the letters are super old stickers, the crown accent from TH, washi tape and a stamp from Prima and a wordy one from Fiskars

You can just about see that I stencilled an A and an E (it shows up more in real life) The journaling tag is a PLS Chalkboard tag and pulls out to reveal my thoughts
I had lots of fun with this layout - although I did get bored waiting for stuff to dry!!

Here is the challenge if you would like to give it a go:

Thanks so much for popping in,
