Bloggers Challenge - Monochromatic Blue




It's another challenge over at Bloggers' Challenge. This week it is 'Monochromatic Blue' that we are to use for our project. I'm not much of a blue person. (It's a long story.) I find myself, once again, away from home with a duffle bag of supplies and little of anything in the way of blue. I started with a piece of light blue card stock for the card base. I stamped my images from the Steampunk plate by Artistic Outpost in Faded Jeans Distress Ink and distressed the edges to mute the stark white card stock I stamped on. I added a sentiment on a small darker piece of card stock along the side. Though I was tempted to add some silver liquid pearls, I resisted. I wrapped some blue and white ribbon around the corners of the main image and my card was complete. Don't you just love these challenges? They really make me grow as an artist. Also entering this card int Artistic Outposts September Referral Program. Hoping everyone is enjoying this beautiful Holiday weekend. Take care. Yvonne
