Thursday Thoughts

I had some inky time with the blues today to create my background for a card to enter into Happy Little Stampers July Watercolour Challenge.

And I have to say I'm a little bit in love with those blues, so pretty how they've smooshed themselves together.

Once the ink was dry I trimmed the card into a strip and stamped the sketchy outline butterflies on top. A little grey pen was added to create a bit of shadow depth and then I matted it onto black card before adhering to the card base.

A very simple sentiment and I called it done.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Winged Things; Uniko, sentiment from a retired set
Inks: Ranger distress, meramid lagoon, blueprint sketch; Verafine, onyx black
Pen: Promarker, cool grey 1

Well that's me done for today. Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog, it sure was fun having you drop by.  And keep crafting!
