Shades of Blue


I wanted to play along with the new challenge at Less is More which is to make a CAS one layer card based on the theme - Thinking of You.  I inked up some of the new release from Uniko to make this card:

I inked through Uniko's lattice stencil in a combination of peacock feathers and cracked pistachio distress oxides.  I then stamped the lovely leafy silhouette from Just Because in navy ink from Hero Arts.  The sentiment is from Pure Florals Lily.  I shall also link up at Calling All Sistahs - thanks to Sandie for the suggestion :)

While I had the lattice stencil out I inked it up again before stamping the Pure Florals Rose stamp.  In used the navy ink and then coloured over it with one of the Tonic Nuvo glitter markers.  I then inked through the Nature's Treasures stencil to add leaves and the sentiment is from Just Because.  A few ink splatters complete the design.

I shall link up for a second time at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we are using more than one stamp.

Thank you for stopping by,
