Feeling Blue


A new challenge begins today over at Sugar Creek Hollow. This time as well as keeping to our Vintage/Shabby Chic style we had to use 'The Colours of our Countries Flag'.
 So the new theme is to- Make a card featuring the colours seen on your Country's flag.
Please pop over to see what we have all been making and meet out Guest Designer Sanja .


You will probably have guessed by now that I live in the U.K.
Red  [Victorian Velvet distress ink], white [papers]  and blue [Denim Adirondak], were the colours I used.
The trimmings were the easy part on this card, it was which stamped image I wanted to use that  caused me bother. Would it  look okay stamped out in blue, with minimum  colouring added.?  I  did think she looked   a bit pale hence the slight shading with the D.I.
The stamp I used  was one  from Inkadinkado.

Thank you for stopping by, I do appreciate your comments.
