Shades of Blue – Best Wishes

Hi everyone,

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on my recent posts.

This week is flying by. I can’t believe it is almost the weekend again. The nights seem to be drawing out at last.

I am a little bit busy doing jobs at home at the moment so I have decided to schedule some posts over the next couple of days. They are only going to be short posts with a project and a short description.

Here is today’s project which was made for Crafty individuals recent show on Hochanda.

For a lot of the recent makes I have tried to match the topper and embellishment colours with the backing papers.

The image and sentiment was stamped onto coated card stock using Distress Inks. I used the same ink to colour some water colour paper and then used  die cut to cut out the flowers.

Crafty Individuals Stamp: Venezia Bird CI-180. Sentiment “Every Day Curly Words” Linda Edwards CI 464. CI A4 Backing Papers – Floral Festival.

Thank you for looking. Have a fantastic weekend.

    Beautiful card love the colours so much so that I have just ordered the papers and stamp. You have managed to match the colours of the stamping so well with the papers. I don’t know if mine will be as successful but will give it a try. x

      Hi Beverley, Thank you so much. I am desperately trying to do soft colours. I love anything folk art. You know bright bold colours. Always have so soft pastels is a battle for me but I am getting used to them now 🙂 Hope all is well. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs Flo xx

    Yes it’s a perfect match and all the more stylish for it! Love the multicolour stamping, one of my favourite things with stamping techniques. Love it! xx

      Thank you so much Gerrina. The weekend looked promising but it is a bit over cast today. I wanted to get into the garden but I’m cleaning carpets instead! Maybe get some vitamin D next week 🙂 Wishing your weekend is full of sunshine and fun. Hugs Flo xx

          Oh no! Hope you are feeling better soon. Sounds like the guineas have settled in nicely 🙂 I’ve not see the midwife. Another friend was talking about it the other day. Will have a look to see if I can watch it some how. Stay warm and cosy. Hugs Flo xx

    As far as I can see this is as far back as I can go due to comment closure. The colours in this are matched with the background so perfectly Flo, you have done a fabulous job, and I love the added die cut flowers, and the large sentiment finishes it excellently. x
