Blue - my favourite colour!

Those of you who know me (or even look at the design of my blog!) will know that blue is my favourite colour.  So I was very happy to see the ATCAS challenge "Blue".  I have a cousin who loves blue as well, and her birthday is coming up so it seemed the perfect opportunity to get her card made well in advance.  


I  used a piece of a background I'd made by sponging with Distress Peacock Feathers and Broken China, and then flicking with water.  I stamped some text with the Broken China and the sentiment and flowery flourish with Archival Black.   I bordered it with black and added it to an embossed background that seemed to go well with the image.  A few aqua and blue gemstones finished it off.

Thanks for dropping in to have a look!







Supplies:
Stamps: Tim Holtz flower flourish, Gina K sentiment, unknown text
Paper: white and black cs
Paper Size: A2
Ink: Ranger Archival Black, Distress Peacock Feathers and Broken China
Accessories: blue and aqua gemstones, Crafts Too embossing folder, foam tape
