AiFactory Challenge 26 - Blue, Bling and a Bow

Morning everyone, it's time for this week's challenge over at AiFactory and the challenge is to include the colour blue on your creations along with some bling and a bow so it's the signal to hunt out those ribbons and some glittter, jewels etc etc.
The DT were all given a gorgeous image by Mia called Trinity which has 2 slightly different shape variations and I love it so much that I've got quite carried away and made 3 cards with it, all using different materials.
This first one is the most arty. I printed the image out on glossy photo paper and coloured her by sponging her with Ranger Distress inks. I mounted the panel on a piece of corrugated card painted with blue and bronze acrylic paints. I made a background using an AiFactory Hina Tattoo image printed out on white parchment card and sponged with Broken China Distress ink. I added a piece of copper metal foil embossed using the Cuttlebug Textile folder, sponged with blue, green and black StazOn inks. A chiffon and fibre bow and a faux coin border finished my creation.

This second one is much simple and more modern, I printed the image on white card and coloured her with Prismacolor pencils, sponging a little blue ink around the image. I cut her out with mini scallop scissors, mounted the panel on black card and trimmed her with the same scissors. I used background paper from the Daisy & Dandelion range, trimming one edge with the Martha Stewart Daisy Border punch. I added jewels to the flower centres and a black dotty bow to finish.

This last one doesn't have a bow as I thought it would be too much. I printed the image out on inkjet acetate and mounted her on a piece of inked glossy photo paper. I added a little extra colour to the reverse of the image with Promarkers before fixing to the inked paper with brads.
I made a background by spraying photo paper with Glimmer Mists in blue, pink and purple and edged the panel with blue glitter border peel offs. I added Dovecraft Retro Floral brads at the bottom and used the matching paper as a background.
