B is for Blue...

It's time for another challenge over on The ABC challenge and we're now on the letter 'B' so for this challenge we want to see blue creations. The sponsor for this challenge is Secret Crafter and the prize is a set of digital images of her second Manga release.

For my card I used my new set of Aspects of Design stamps. When I saw the freebie stamp on a recent Craft Stamper magazine I knew I had to get the full set ! I've made the background with Distress Inks, Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Weathered Wood. I've then stamped with black Archival ink. The word 'Visage' was mounted onto black card and then onto foam pads. The swirl is a Tim Holtz die and I've added some pearls and I've paper pierced the corners.

For the flower I stamped some white paper with a Stampin' Up polka dot stamp I cut out 2 flowers using the Paper Artsy Grunge Flower die. I then sprayed them with Medici Mixed Media spray in Wedgwood, scrunched them up and stuck then together with Glossy Accents. The brad is a Filligree from Stampin' Up. I quite liked this when I'd finished !

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

I hope you're able to join us for this 'blue' challenge.
