IO Challenge- Moody Blues (Blue Cards)
Greetings friends. Today is all about celebrating the color blue. It might be hot outside, but I decided to go with a winter card.
For my card today, I made my own stripes by using Eclipse masking tape and creating diagonal lines. I then sponged an assortment of Distress Oxide inks in the open areas to make the stripes. Hint... add a lot of color with a sponge so that the ink smooths out and looks like printed paper. I really like the look of a one layer card, so I really appreciate giving the impression of layers of paper, even though there aren't any.
Next, I added snowflakes and a sentiment from one of the newest clear stamp sets. I used blue versafine ink and then colored in parts of the sentiment with a blue colored pencils. As a final touch, I added rhinestones to the center of snowflakes.
