Sunday Stampers Challenge: Blue


Squeezing in under the wire for Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper color challenge.  I cut this ATC out of corrugated cardboard using Tim's ATC die, then peeled off the top layer and painted it with a Ranger sailboat blue dabber.  A bit too bright for me, so I used navy Staz-on with some background stamps to tone it down.  One of Tim's sayings on vellum with a punched birdie and some blue jute. A few inches of a Kay & Co border strip, some brads, and a generous coating of turquoise Perfect Pearls Mist.  That last layer brings me into Gingersnap Creations Challenge #98: Mists.

Thanks for looking!  Have a great weekend.

Your comments are very much appreciated!
