A Splash of Blue

Hello everyone, it's time for another weekly post over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog, and this week, I am providing part of the inspiration. I have made a very simple card using some left over scraps of background paper. I save all of my useable pieces for times such as these when I can use the oddments to make another card.

This month's challenge colours are a monochrome mix of turquoises, and I found a piece of watercolour paper that had a pale turquoise wrinkle free distress background on it. I stamped the Floral Weave cling mounted stamp onto the background using a lovely teal shimmery embossing powder. I have had this embossing powder for years and years, but it still works so well, and I love the colour. I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Words stamp set onto another strip of the background, using Memento Nautical Blue Ink. I edged the pieces of background using a Distress crayon, smudging the crayon with my finger. I stuck all of the strips of card onto a piece of deep teal card, and added some flat-backed pearls to finish.


Do hop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Team inspiration, and to see how you can enter the challenge and win a voucher to spend at Chocolate Baroque.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

I love the way your wrinkle free elements are reversed with the main panel having a light one & the sentiment a dark. The placing of the elements with the dark border for the sentiment against the lighter is gorgeous, such an effective layout & I particularly like the accenting with your different sized gems in the top right - a really interesting way of embellishing. I thoroughly enjoy your CAS creations - there's always something educational in the design layout or the colours.
