Sisters - Clear Embellishments

This week on Practical Scrappers, I was challenged to use clear embellishments or transparencies.  I had never used either one of these items so of course I had no clue what I was going to do.  I toyed with the idea of doing something with a transparency but came across these cute bottle cap embellishments at the store and thought of doing this instead.

The pictures are of my little girls who are now 12 and 9 years old.  I drew the flower freehand and then added small circles cut from black and white striped paper.  The bottle caps were placed on top of the larger circles and brightly colored gems were added to the smaller circles. I also added a black gem to the center of the flower to finish the look.

This challenge definitely pushed me out of my box and who knows, I may even try to use a transparency sometime soon.

Thank you for checking out my blog today!
