Continuing with the “Blue” challenge theme for January, The Sisterhood of Crafters’ January Challenge is The Color Blue. Blue should be the obvious color on your card project. I decided to CASE a card that was posted on the SSS website when the Carnation Frame die was released. I purchased a Sudio71 watercolor kit that was on clearance at SimonSaysStamps some time ago. The kit includes paints, watercolors and watercolor pencils with a few brushes. I decided on three of the blues, a flat brush, some water and went to work on creating my striped background. Maybe I should have added some splatter to the background? What do you think?
I die cut the carnation frame twice and once in navy blue. The navy blue pieces were inset into my flower. Sentiment is from Gina K Designs Lacey Flowers.
This is the second card I made using the same concept but using a blue frame die cut.
I’me starting a collection of cards for troops and try to keep sentiments more general.
Waiting for the snow to begin or to fizzle today, watching the Eagles get clobbered by the Bucs and making some cards. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Take care and be safe.
