Card Blues

.........times two.

Today, I created 2 cards for Artistic Outpost using the Bluebird stamp set. The image on both cards is stamped on a background created with alcohol inks on white glossy paper. I used Denim, Stonewashed, Stream, Silver mixative & Extender on my craft sheet. I laid the glossy paper on the inks & twisted & slid the paper off the mat. I repeated this step until I had most of the white covered with color. I used Ranger Archival black ink to stamp the images.

I chose to accent the bluish-purple color of the background on this card. I added a lace edge using a MS punch. The ribbon is very irridescent (couldn't capture the shine very well in the photo) and actually has a purple tint. The pearls are from Hero Arts.

I used blue paper scraps for this card. The texture was created with QuicKutz Gooosebumpz embossing dies. I rubbed Ranger Ocean Aqua over it. I used a Spellbinders Oval Tag to cut "thinking of you". It's mounted with foam dots. The white card is ribbed but it didn't show up well in this photo. The little black pearls are also from Hero Arts.
