Blue Monotone Card


Here is my card for Rainbow Lady's challenge 22 to use one rainbow colour and as you can see I chose blue. I am not sure of the make of the daisy stamp (think it may be Anita's) but the image has been coloured with Twinking H20 paints and the centre is a HOTP brad with a square gem.


The centre flower is Prima with a HOTP button brad and the other floral embelishments I have had for ages, also the blue craft wire....I was beginning to think I would never use that! I just added a tiny punched butterfly coloured with blue Stickles glue to the flower on the right, a few gems and a ric rac bow. The card front has been covered with lovely blue Artylicious paper from one of the Graphicus Guild sets and the blue card stock I mounted the flowers on has been stamped with Versafine using a small stamp from the same set as the scribble daisy. The darker blue strip is a piece of blue vellum put through the paper crimper.

I really like this Denise, lots of lovely techniques involved too. I don't think we use blue enough in our card making as this looks lovely.
