Sunday Stamper - Week 352 - True Blue

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Easter Sunday to you all!  Thanks for your fabulous flying creations entered into last weeks challenge.  The new theme this week is... ANYTHING BLUE You can interpret the challenge how you like: be it blue papers, blue ink, blue paint... the choice, it be yours!   To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping *this is THE important bit guys, please remember your rubberstamps!*  and then hop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me or by leaving me a link to your Pinterest or any other photo hosting site.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 11th April 2015.  



A quicky make for my entry this week - namely a little card I put together using that delicious new Distress colour Mermaid Lagoon.  Oh la la!  I make no secret of loving hues of blue and when this one was revealed last month, I did have a little grin to myself... another blue... you can never have too many blues right?  And this one doesn't disappoint.  It fits in perfectly with Broken China and Salty Ocean... but goes delightfully with Cracked Pistachio - which is what I did for the background of this card using Distress Spray Stains.



I stamped out the cone flower three times... cut them out (nearly went goggle eyed cutting those diddy petals out but it is worth it!) and coloured the petals with Mermaid Lagoon and the cone with Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge... I loves colouring using a waterbrush and ink, it is so easy and as I am useless with a marker, I find this way the best for me.  The leaves are stamped, cut out and coloured with Forest Moss DI and a waterbrush too.  The sentiment was stamped, cut down into strips and popped onto the card with some 3d glue so the strips bend over the stalks of the flowers... and that's it... simples! 



So, what you got planned for your Easter?  Today we are going to be avidly watching the tellybox... it is the first round of the British Touring Car Championship, usually we try to go to the first one at Brands Hatch but I am still not 100% so we decided to stay home, watch on the telly box and have a nice roasty dinner instead.... I shall be shouting... as ever... GO PLATO!   Thanks for looking and have a great day!  TTFN

Your blue is fabulous Hels...our glorious Austumn skies right now. I've been MIA for a while....too too much to do. Your blue set me down a stamping challenge path of my own and I was rather chuffed with the results...http://timetocreate-handmadetreasure.blogspot.com.au/2015/04/all-i-did-was-open-packet.html
