La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #42

If you're looking for the Your Next Stamp Challenge #18, it's the post directly below this one. Thanks!

* * * * * * * * * *

It's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was chosen by Lisa and is to make a project with blue as your main color.

Here's my card:

I used the new Beach Rosie set (which includes this sentiment as well as 2 others!) and a sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Rosie was stamped, colored with Copics and cut out. Her swimsuit was paper pieced. I also stamped a separate oyster, colored it a little with Copics, painted over with Lumiere paint, then restamped the image over it because the paint made the lines look really faded. Then I cut it out and added a pearl that I airbrushed blue with a Copic marker.

Here's a close shot so you can see the oyster a little better:

Before I go, I want to let you know that whatever image the hostess uses on her project is 20% off for the week of the challenge, and this week it's Garden Rosie! And since we have a new requirement that you must use a La-La Land Crafts image on your projects to win the $10 credit or Top Three, don't forget that we have all these fabulous digi images available now!

We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
