Blues

Hi!!!  I made this card today to enter it into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge - Blue shades.

I used a white card stock and sprayed it with a Blue spray that I made myself because I don't have any blue sprays at the moment.   The card's blue's  that I used for the flags and matching butterflies were found in my scrap basket, as I don't often use blue.   I found the blue butterfly paper to make the lace at the top with a Nellie Snellon cutting die that I haven't used for ages, forgot it was there until I started searching for forgotten object, I used Perfect Pearls liquid for the dots on the butterflies and in the bottom corners of the card, haven't used that for ages either.

  6. I love this technique! So striking! Just wonderful. I love your blue mist. I make my own all the time because, even when you hoard 100 bottles of mist, you never have the correct color... hee hee Thanks for joining us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!

  14. Love that you made your own spray. I have mixed my own paint at home to get the color I want by buying a sample adding to a gallon of leftover paint I had to create the exact color match I needed for a wall.
