The BLUE challenge

The Scrappy Tree is running The BLUE challenge for World Pneumonia Day on November 12th. You can get more information about this and how to support such a great cause by visiting The Scrappy Tree here! The aim of the challenge is to create a project in blue for Save The Children and World Pneumonia Day - the winner will receive some blue scrappy supplies, and the top ten entries will get a donation of $10 each made to the cause in their name. As well as having a chance to win some goodies, this is a really good cause and you could be winning the chance to help save the life of a child with pneumonia if you take part, so please get out your scrappy supplies and show us what you can do :)

I'm hoping to have the chance to make a few projects for this challenge, but this is what I've been working on so far:-
I used a clear acrylic tag and dripped Stream Alcohol Ink onto it along with some Alcohol Blending Solution to get the interesting blue effect. I stamped some Inkadinkado flourishes onto the front of the tag with Jet Black StazOn ink, and attached a Tim Holtz keychain. This is my first attempt at a grungepaper flower! Have decided I need a more uniform flower stamp when I try this again! But managed to put it together using grungepaper, Faded Jeans Distress Ink, Glossy Accents to stick it together, and embellished with Icicles Stickles and a small blue metallic brad by Papermania.
If you'd like to have a go at this challenge, please visit The Scrappy Tree for more information and instructions on where to upload your project or how to give to the cause in other ways. Thanks for looking!

Fantastic idea and beautiful creation. Really appreciate the energy you're devoting to World Pneumonia Day. With more people like you getting involved I'm sure we can make a great impact against this terrible disease.
