SHADES of BLUE
You can use a white card base, but they do want to see more than one color of blue, not just one!
I must admit I've been lurking over there for a while - the DT and the folks who participate are extremely talented!!! I finally just had to take the plunge with this one.
My card uses Rogue Redhead Designs stamps - the "bluebells" are from the Floriculture plate, stamped three times and masked, and colored with Copics. The background vintage Almanac image is from the Relish Reading plate (from Stamp Diva). I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape, colored with Copics, to the top and bottom of the image panel to make it look like the image was just haphazardly stuck there. The background is Glimmer Mists. Very flat, very mailable, very fun ;).
Tomorrow I will finally have my second-ever blog candy.... Bluebird Blog Candy (say that 5 times fast!)... celebrating all of you lovely artists who inspire and encourage me every single day. Hope all of my US friends have a fabulous and fun July 4th!
