Let's See the Blues!

We're back in a fourth week at Make My Monday with a focus on the color wheel!  This week our main focus is on ANALOGOUS COLOURS, which are colours that sit in a group of three next to each other on the colour wheel.

  We usually use these combinations when doing monochromatic artwork.  This week we are focusing on blues and Mynnette would like to see creations using turquoise, light blue, and dark blue with white or cream as your neutrals. You may stamp lined images and sentiments in either black or brown, but solid images should be stamped in one of the three blues. Here is my card, which this week I have kept clean and simple. I used an embossed edge C6 card and matted and layered in the chosen colours the stamped image. 
The stamp is one of my bargain favourites, an old wooden stamp, maker unknown, marked down from £9 to £2. Each of the 3 sections are one stamp. I covered the last two sections on the stamp with Sellotape, inked the first section. Removed the tape from the second section, carefully inked that section, removed the tape from the last section and inked that. Then one great big huff and blow to re-moisten and stamp. I added two small slits in the card to thread through the ribbon, tied in a knot. I again, look forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations. Last week's were amazing, so many wonderful cards, I found it extremely difficult to choose the top 3.

  7. Hi Caz! Thanks for all your thoughts concerning Josephine. She came home today! It is a long recovery as she had a portion of her lung removed, but she is coming along.
