Happy Blue Friday,
The first question is doe s really purple shade of blue count as blue? OK its purple however I love this card and the rest of the samples I have made in my Blue phase have some over to CE towers to be used as show samples for Sue next weekend so I can't show them at the moment!
Today's card is one from my couture creations show at the beginning of the month its a real mix of styles.
The background is a piece of the white ribbed card from the special finishes pack which I inked with the that special touch mask in milled lavender deists ink. I then shaded around the square of card (20x20cm) to age the card and show the lovely embossed line pattern.
Next I cut the couture Creations art deco background die in more of the white and mounted it onto a mat of heather foundation card The sentiment, from the friends sentiment set (which was due to be on the show but stock levels didn't allow however I do have this set on Sundays show as I have been using it so much recently I just love it!) is stamped onto the Mirror Mirror die cut in white and inked in the same distress ink. To highlight the sentiment piece I cut a couple of the flourishes and then the waterlily die in Velum which I inked and scrunched them up.
I love the look of the flowers cut in vellum and the way they seem to flow!
