Lots of blue!! Created this one for a Monochromatic Blue swap!! I am really happy with how the blues in this card work with each other. There was a fair amount of swapping until I was happy with all the layers! The image is from my image stash - clear embossed on white and colour washed with watercolour. I keep printed, stamped, coloured, cut out images - actually all images that don't work out for the project I am working on. As in this case, this image was the focal point of the card and I built all the blue layers and embellishments around it!! Perfect!! I used some very cool velvet ribbon on this card - it is such a nice baby blue and has lots of texture - would have been too thick to knot so for this application - backed with double sided tape - it worked out just right. Added blue rhinestones to each scallop on the border (SU border punch) as well. The greeting was stamped in blue. After a bit of experimenting I ended up stamping off once before stamping on my layer to reduce the intensity of the ink. I like how it turned out!!
It has been fun to play and make cards one at a time!! I am using the supplies that I really like and have only in limited supply!! One more swap - finished!!
