Colouring Transparent Objects!

Our challenge at The Otlawz Copic/Promarker challenge this week really challenged ME!! Our theme is to colour a transparent object...sheesh...talk about out of my comfort zone LOL  I wanted to find something a little different and remembered I had Predictabella from Stampingbella in my stash and hadn't used her yet, so thought I'd give that a go...her crystal ball is clear so there's the something transparent....and I also thought of a freebie from The Creative Mind of Sylvie that was also sitting is my stash, waiting to get used....2 images, one of a glass jug and the other of 2 glasses.

I found colouring the transparent bits quite daunting as they didn't turn out how I'd envisaged them :(  In the end I couldn't decide which card to submit for the challenge so I'm posting both!!  I'm not overly happy with either...I think I need LOTS of practice with this...you need to click on the photo to enlarge to see the colouring on the crystal ball! Here are my cards:


And a close up to show the bling :)

When Life gives you lemons...make lemonade:

You need to use your imagination here...the sparkly buttons are supposed to be lemon slices and the rhinestones, the pips :)  The sentiment was computer generated.

Hope you'll come and play along with us this week.  Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)
