Play Date Cafe Challenge 12 - Shades of Blue
This week's challenge at the Play Date Cafe is shades of blue - inspired by the recent freezing temperatures. I decided to make a birthday card, using "Elegant Stems" from the fab Stampington range - here stamped on watercolour paper, using faded jeans distress ink, and by spritzing the stamp before stamping, rather than the paper as I always seem to get better results that way. I have torn the edges which I've also swiped with faded jeans, and mounted it on a DL size card which I covered with some paper from my stash. I've just added some prima flowers which I've pinned together with a flower shaped brad and the "dream" is from impression obsession.
A big thanks to Hels for some scanning tips (not that I needed them for this card as it's nice and flat) - have re-scanned one of the previous images with much better results. Cheers.
