Blue Bouquet



A Spoonful of Sugar

We have a colour Challenge for you this week at A Spoonful of Sugar

Blue and Green

We also have a beautiful card from our Guest Designer Steph, and 2 great stamps from Alota Rubber Stamps for one lucky winner, so I hope we see you joining us this week


Good Morning everyone, well I have woken up to the sun shining through the bedroom room, so much better than that dreadful rain we had yesterday, surprising how a bit of Sun can make you feel so much better.

Blue and Green is not a colour combo I use much, but certainly will do after this challenge, I am extending my colour range lately and getting away from Pink and Lilac never thought I would. Back to Distress Inks for me for this gorgeous Melinda Angel from
Whiff of Joy he has such a serene face I adore her.

Whilst blog hopping I have seen so many fabulous handmade flowers I am promising myself that I am going to have a go at making some this week, thanks for the inspiration girls, Don't forget you only have a week left to order the Summer Release from Elizabeth Bell available at
Whiff of Joy


I have coloured another Melinda for the inside of the card.



Recipe:
Stamps -
Whiff of Joy
Papers - Basic Grey Lily Kate
Colouring medium - Distress Inks, Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters, Tattered Rose and Distressed Paper
Tools - Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch, Large and Medium Retro Punch, Swirl Punch
Embellishments - Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts, Flat Back Pearls Joanna Sheen, charm from stash

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Oh jacqui that is just gorgeous. I was just commenting on Camilla's blog about how I love the effect you get with distress inks and then I pop on here and you've used them too. I would love to know how you use them - the effect is just beautiful and so different from that which you get with marvy's or promarkers. Beautiful card as ever.

Hugs,
