I'm blue! Love a bit of blue. Love a lot of blue in fact....so when I first saw this week's Twisted Tuesday Challenge #19 - Are You Blue? on Jeanette's blog, I knew I had to play. The challenge involved making something predominantly blue, with only one other colour.
Here is my blue card, made earlier this week, but not photographed until today because...well, just because!
|Check out the shimmery finish on the petals....a gift from my blogging buddy Debbie!|
This card, looks simple enough, but actually caused me no end of grief. The first try ended up with multiple crooked layers and patchy stamping. It's a shocker! Even this one disappointed me with the Pacific Point ink coming through the Whisper White craft ink of the sentiment. Note to Self: WAIT UNTIL CLASSIC INK IS FULLY DRY BEFORE OVER-STAMPING IN WHISPER WHITE CRAFT INK!! You'd think that would be obvious, but not for this nutty little crafter.
My husband was very amused to see this card sitting on my craft desk, as he later presented me with a gift...which could itself have been the inspiration for my card, but I hadn't seen it when the card was completed. Must have been having a premonition...I promise I didn't peek!
This is a little portion of my beautiful gift...
