The Less is More challenge and Jules' snippets challenge compliment each other so well I am finding. Once again my card is inspired by these two challenges.
This week the lovely ladies over at the Less is More challenge are looking for Shades of Blue ......Hmmmmmmmm yummy! So out came my snippet box and the search began for blue bits.
I heat embossed the image in white onto a white snippet and then played with blue distress inks. I then inked the stamp with the darkest blue ink and stamped it again to try and create a shadow effect, which partly worked, just doesn't show up much behind the dandelion head. A generous spray with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle Iridescent (Ooooh I LOVE this stuff!)
and a left over bit of ribbon to finish.
The DP is by Funky Hand (I think) mounted onto a dark blue piece of Bazzill card. Three blue card candies (please forgive me but I just had to do it) Text stamp is from the Penny Black Salutations set. And here's my card...
Distress inks used: Stormy Sky, Broken China, Faded Jeans & Chipped Sapphire.
Blue Card candy from sets: Winter Blues, Ocean Spray & Joy.

Hope you are having a great weekend!
