Very blue...

...the card I made that is. I started with one challenge in mind then it led to another 4..so that's 1 card, 5 challenges. Getting good at this...lol. First the challenges.


My Time to Craft #51......Hats.
Funky Fairy's #6...Blue
ABC......D for distressing
Sketch Saturday #21 Ria's sketch
SCSC #22....Masking
I started off with the colour blue and it just took off from there. Perhaps I've gone a bit overboard with the colour...but I just got so engrossed with it....as you do.
I think it's growing on me.

The main backing paper is a free download from Funky Fairy, the blue spotty a scrap from my stash. I distressed both by rubbing with the trusty nail file, then went over the edges with an ink pad. The stamps are SeeD's....4 separate stamps, this is where the masking came in. The flowers were punched (Woodware) out of odd scraps of card and paper, shaped slightly with an embossing tool and the edges inked, then self adhesive pearls added to the centre's.
