This week the challenge at Sarah Kay Challenge is to use Blue as the main color in your card. Great challenge, because it leaves it soooo open to what ever you want to do just use blue! Any shade of blue!
I used a dark blue card stock as the base of my card, and then chose a K&Company paper as the pattern paper. And it was a scrap so bonus points for me personally! I decided I wanted to use one of the Sarah Kays that I could color in lots of denim... so I chose "A kiss for Chloé" love those over-alls! I colored them with my Copics and then inked the edges with a dark blue ink, matted with the same card stock as the base.
How how about those flowers, lovin' my new EK Success Retro Flower Punches. I have been admiring them for so long on other blogs, and when punches were on sale last time.. I got two sizes! I punched three, one large and two small out of the blue card stock. Then I placed them upside down on a mouse pad and with a bone folder I rounded the petals out, it really gave some shape to them! I then punched a small flower out of what was left from the pattern paper, it is the pattern on the other side of the dotted paper, and used buttons for the centers. My flourishes, die cuts from Quickutz, are also K&Company scraps and has a vintage script pattern on it and looks kind of cool cut into the flourishes and also the sentiment that is a Cuttlebug die cut.
I gel pen stitched down the edges of the card stock and the image.. then for some fun I stitched around the petals of the flowers... love how that came out!
