Lost in Blue

Finished up another monochromatic card tonight. I've been admiring all the beautiful mixed media work people have been doing lately. This is me dipping my toes in. ;) Lots of ink, a little fiber paste, smooch spritz, and glitter paper. I sponged blue ink on the glitter paper so it has a mottled appearance up close. I also gave a few swipes with a white crayon for some resist action. I had fun making this card and getting out of my box. Linking this at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.

  1. A stunning card, I love the effect you've created especially with out you 'handle' - strange how things disappear, then reappear when you no longer need them!!! Wonderful colours scheme and fabulous detailing!!

    Thanks so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

  2. I love monochromatic. I see something Flat Stanley brought; however, I think Flat Stanley brought a duplicate. I love the texture and the shades of blue. The butterflies & the sentiment all really go well together! Beautiful!

  3. Looks like more than a little dipping your toes in! Gorgeous card! I love the bits of fiber paste pattern and your ink pattern is gorgeous! Beautiful card!

  4. What a pretty little monochromatic card, love the sentiment.
