Feeling Blue!



This is this weeks colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe and although blue isn't a colour I use very often I have enjoyed this challenge and have ended up making two cards for it.



This card is using one of my new Hero Arts stamps Poppy Background. First I stamped a piece of BasicGrey paper with Wheat Grass in Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and let it dry. I then stamped again with the Poppy background ,versamark ink and enbossed in clear. The poppy heads were stamped and embossed again on patterned paper and then cut out and pop dotted to the card. The photograph is a little dark as the blues are quite bright!

This is the second card I have made, it was all based around the butterfly that I had stamped and coloured a few weeks ago and hadn't used.
Hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend, the weather is ment to brighten up here tomorrow so I hope to get into the garden.
