This week, the Shopping Our Stash gals are asking us to make non-wintery cards featuring the color blue for their Winter Blues Challenge. What a fun idea!
Since I'm doing a little on-the-road crafting, I have Distress Inks, Stampin' Up! card stock, and about twenty Prismacolor pencils. So, I've had to do a little creative crafting to come up with a background blue and a flower blue that go well together. And, then stenciling on a non-white background added required an extra layer of creativity. The picture doesn't quite capture the true color of the blues, but it's not too far off.
All in all, think the results turned out pretty well.
Kristina Werner shared a couple of weeks ago. In addition, I decided to just apply the stenciling and stitching effect to the top left corner, offsetting the location of my little flower arrangement. (Pardon the creative license I took with that sweet little daffodil. All in the nameof a good challenge.) Finally, I started with a linen bow, but felt there needed to be another pop of color. (Hope that doesn't disqualify me over at SOS. LOL)
Think that's it for tonight.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'. Have a great week!
