Touch of Blue

I had Tilda ready to be placed on a card just waiting for the right sketch and this time is was Bev sketch at Just Magnolia but I decided on just white card with a touch of blue for a change.
I do enjoy making these white cards cos I can use my favourite punches and embossing folders and the job is done. The snowflakes have been glittered and the sentiment is a craftwork card using Stampin up punches again.
I confess to have brought quite a few new stamps from several companies but I'm so disappointed with a couple of them. The images are so beautiful but the size of the actual image are so small especially for layering come to that it must make it more difficult to colour. I guess I'm going to have to check the dimensions before I buy and if they don't have them I don't buy them. I'm being more swayed using digi images, one I can have the size I want and it doesn't hurt to print several images on a page unlike stamping.

The white and turquoise go beautifully together Debby....love Tilda too although I only have 2 stamps!
I know what you mean about some stamps being small I'm doing a workshop in a couple of weeks and the stamps I've been given to demo are so tiny...it doesn't make it easy.

Hi Debby,

Thank you for your comment. I had also noticed your card but when I saw the number of comment which there was, I lose courage... I like the delicate and precise work which you realized on the bottom of your card. As well as your choice to make it two-colored.

Congratulations !
Hugs from France.

P.S.: I put you in my favourites
