Week 153 Colour Challenge

Happy New Year

Firstly as it's a new Month we have a new Sponsor and this month one of our very own LIMettes is sponsoring us .. Lizy

It's the first colour challenge of  2014 and we have chosen

Winter Blues

We would like to see cards with shades of blue 


This terrific wading bird is a stamp from The Rubber Stamp Gallery, stamped then masked, so that the graduated shades of blue could be added around it. This has been overstamped with SU Gorgeous Grunge stamps and then the weeds from Technique Tuesday were added after the mask had been removed. The sentiment is from SU Petite Pairs.

More stamping and masking here, this time using a torn Post It note and sponge daubers. The trees and the sentiment are from Darkroom Door.


For my first card I coloured some white embossing paste with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and then used a striped mask from Simon Says Stamp.  I then inked some card in the same colour and used the baby die also from Simon Says Stamp to cut out the work.. It's then simply finished with some blue glitter.

For my second card I simply stamped a sentiment from Clearly Besotted onto white card and then added banners cut from strips of card stock and paper.  I then simply stitched across the top.

I also have some New Years Candy on my blog here if anyone would like to enter!!
