And Todays Colour is Blue

Afternoon or evening I meant to get these cards up a lot earlier but had a play with my Brayer and just got carried away, well I have 3 Blue projects  for you today it was completely by accident, it doesn’t reflect my mood.


My first card is an 8 x 8 card not my usual size, I do like my 5.1/2” square cards the image is from an older SWALK release and the papers are from The  SWALK CD Volume 2, both from Crafters Companion, I am so pleased that I was asked to colour this image it reminded me of how much I love it,  don’t you adore that lush bow made with  pale Pink Silky Crush  Ribbon and the lace is Scallop Venice White Guipure, both from the Ribbon Girl.  The image was coloured with Spectrum Noirs onto Classic Card

Spectrum Noirs used:
hair GB4, Tn3, TN2
Flesh: FS9, FS4, FS2 CR3
Blues: TB4, TB3, TB2
Pinks: PP4, PP2, PP1
Beige: EB2, EB1
Browns: EB4 EB5, TN4

This is one of the cute new Swalk Images that will be released next Tuesday on Ideal World, he makes you just want to pinch his squidgy cheeks.  I have really loved playing with this new release.


Another very plain card again, but I am pleased with it, again it has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs, and the backing paper from the SWALK CD Volume 2, I have used the same lace as the card above.  The Bracket is from the Tim Holtzs Hardware Findings die set. I cut it from Blue Co-Ordinations Card which I then covered in Glamour Dust. 


Spectrum Noir Colours used:

Flesh: FS9, FS4, FS2, CR3
Hair: EB2, EB1
Suit and Dots: BT4, BT2, BT1
Greys on cushion: IG2, IG1

Well, hun, if Picasso had a 'Blue Period' I reckon you're entitled to one, too! As usual you've produced some absolutely stunning cards! i especially like the last one, this style reminds me of the Jan Pienkowski posters that we all had back in the '70s! Lovely!

love Mags B x

I came here via your post on SCS. Your coloring on these cards are amazing. Do you know who Michelle Zinforf is? Well she has an amazing gallery on SCS and her specialty is brayering. She has many many tutorials. I was fortunate enough to take a class with her about 3 years ago. I am in the US and it looks like you are in England? Anyway check out her gallery. I think you will truly enjoy it. Your blog is wonderful. Going back to check it out some more.
