Cherubic Blues


Welcome to the November Flourishes Pre-Release Challenge!  It's your opportunity to join the Design Team in creating something beautiful, and you could be the winner of all of this month's New Releases!  This month we have a lovely mono-chromatic color challenge of pretty icy to deep blues.  

I pulled out a set that was actually designed for Valentine's Day...but I think it works beautifully for Christmas too!

This is from the set Angelic Love , and the sentiment is from the set Holiday Greetings .  I've colored the pretty Cherub up with Copic Markers (B0000, B00, Delphinium collection and B12 and B34, plus E00, E21 for the skin).  


I loosely based the layout on the Mojo Sketch for this week, but it sort of took on a life of it's own!   And I've gone back and forth in my head on whether it's too much or not!  

The shapes are Labels 14 Nestabilities.  Above is a detail shot on the satin bow, and the pretty embossed snowflakes and pretty pearl snowflakes from Zva.  


And above I hope you can see the shimmer I added with a Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen.  I added it to the angel wings, and all the edges of the nestie shapes and the sentiment flag.  

Head on over to the other fantastic Design Team members and see what they've done with these cool blues today and then join us on the challenge!  Use FLLCNOV10 when you upload and link to today's post on the Flourishes Blog!
