Navy Blue

Afternoon all, thank you for popping over today

Hope you are having a good weekend. Weather a little better today 
dry for the moment but boy what a night I gather. 

I fortunately slept all the way through it, but the bins were all over the garden and 
lots and lots of rain in the tubs.

Been playing today with Shaving Foam and using up some of my snippets of 
card. Those bits that went wrong but on the other side I could use. 

So here is my card for today

Shaving foam with inks - mix up and squiggle card stock onto it 

I have used a section of the now made Navy blue background to stamp 
a Hobby Art Poppy stamp onto. 

Coloured in with dark blue alcohol pens. 

Mounted onto Navy snippets of card and used snippets of ribbon from 
my Crafty Ribbons stash. But coloured in the white dots with Navy pen 

Cut out some Butterflies from a Hunkydory scrap of acetate. 

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


Thank you for coming over to see me today. 

Got to get back into the swing of entering my projects - been a bit tied up 
with getting things ready for the Christmas Fair next month 
only 2 weeks away. So please bare with me if I am not around so much 
over the next few days.

  3. Oh my, what a beautiful card! I love your shaving cream background. I really gotta' get me some shaving cream! The poppy image is so pretty too. Hugs, Brenda

  4. Your card is stunning. I haven't made shaving cream papers for so long, I can't remember the last time. But when I make them, I make hundreds of pages at the same time. I applaud you. For some reason, they are like potato chips with me. I can't make just one. You show great restraint and created a beauty in the process.

  5. Clever you, Pen, I'm going to try for butterfly challenge this time around!! I do love your card and the shaving foam is on my to try list one day too!
    Thanks for sharing,

  7. Thank you for the process and a great idea to color white dots in blue. I never thought about that. Many thanks to join us in Crafty Ribbons challenge this week and good luck from Christelle DT.

  8. A beautiful card, love the background and the stamp.

  10. when I made some shaving foam sheets of paper they smelt lovely and the ones I have left still do so an added bonus in my book. Love how you have combined yours to add the flower stamp. Love those butterflies too. Thankyou for flutering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice. hugs Mrs A.

  11. Another lovely Navy card Pen, good luck getting ready for your Christmas fair.
