Shades of Blue


I wanted to join in the Less is More Winter Blues challenge but all the ideas I had, I've either done them before and or someone had made a similar card. On the table beside me is a box of Simon Say Stamps dies and in there are the feathers. I wanted to use a stencil over them but I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to get messy.
I got out different shades of blue card and using MFT zig zag/chervons die cut out 3 of each colour and of white. A bit of advice here stick some dst behind the card and careful position the die along it so you will able to stick the down the zigzag. I went through quite a bit of the tape in the Xyron to make it sticking on the back.
I used a thin bit of paper to layer my zigzags on the last three I cut in half and layered half the side till I have enough to use the feather die.
After a hunt through must of my stuff I found the Inkylicious stamp that I brought from Ally Pally. Once stamped I just coloured the blue word and put my feathers together with a bit of silver twine. I used a spellbinders die to cut out the sentiment and then used to it to draw round and hand cut the mat.
Paper pricked round the edges of a white mat and stuck it down in the centre and added everything else on top.


It still wet and windy and the radio is constantly tell us which roads are being closed and Guildford even made the telly with their metal river defences to save the lower High Street from being flooded again. But at least we are able to go out even if it is in our wellies, my heart goes out the USA where they have record freezing temperatures.
