A little bit Blue

Well the last day of the half term week and I have a fab day planned. I am off to teach a friend how to knit!!! I will maybe blog it later with his permission!

Anyway yesterday saw the start of the Indigo blu Blog Challenge Forever 21 and their first theme is BLUE!

I do love the indigo blu stamps and have a couple of stamps I had not used yet so I have taken the opportunity to put them to good use and make a card which I want to enter into their first challenge!

There are some lovely inspiring samples from the design team so pop over and have a peep

Anyway here is my card!
I used the Blazing Poppies Stamp coloured with promarkers for the main image.
The smaller image is the Mini Love is stamp. Its so cute!
Here are some smaller pictures to highlight the components I made the deep blue flower but the other embellishments are wooden adn I coloured the flower blue and the leaves silver
The Background was done using the crackleglaze background stamp stamped in Sonewashed Adirondack ink and the script background stamped in Demin Adirondack.
I did enjoy doing this card
Please let me know what you think
Happy Crafting
