Blue is the colour

Hi All

Here I am and thinking what shall I do. I had to go into town this morning
early, just mundane things but had to be done. 

Remembered at the last moment the tissue paper I need for 
a challenge this month. Where was my head??

Here is my card for today. 

 I used my New AlteNew stamp and inked in 3 different blue colours

added the leaves again in 2 different colours 

Colours from AlteNew by the way :) 

Mounted onto black card onto a Cream card blank. 

Had a play with different colours stamping the sentiment, again from AlteNew.

I hope you like the card and would like to 
enter it for the following 


I think I just love these new stamps - it takes a bit of time 
to get use to how to put the stamps as its is all in the layering.

I have been trying different papers too - although I do still like my 
usual 250 gsm white card.

Well best think about the rest of the day.

Need to get my thinking cap on for a Wedding Card I have been 
asked to make for my Step - Sister-in-Law. Mum has given me
a "list" of what she wants and I have to think how to add this to a card. 

Really must get on with it - and - not keep on putting it to one side 
and playing with my stamps. 

Have a great day.

  2. I have been meaning to stop by for days and time got in the way of my visit. I couldn't wait any longer, though, because I had to stop by and see what I have missed since the last time I was here.

    Your encaustic work is sensational. I don't have the correct supplies for starting a project like yours, but I certainly love what you did.

    I'm also in awe of your cards. I swear I thought the elephants were origami before I read that it was really a stamp. You certainly had me fooled.

    This card is beautiful. I can't believe the shading you got. It is wonderful.

    Since I should be visiting you more often, I would like to add you to my left sidebar. I will only do so with your permission, of course.

  3. Wonderful card Pen, love your colours and layout.
