The challenge at Make My Monday continues with the colour wheel and this week we are asked to use analogous colours: Light blue, Turquoise and Dark Blue.
I decided that I had to use my usual inky background technique and some new Indigo Blu stamps I had. The card is also being used for a friends birthday so I've kept it rather more traditional than perhaps I would usually. . . . .
I'd also like to show this card at Sunday Stampers where the challenge is 'Words' and Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is 'Hey Girl' - really wanted to do something frilly and pink but never got round to it and perhaps that's not my style. . . . . . . . !
Here's the card I made:
|The completed card. The main image and sentiment are layered onto coloured, textured card and then finally onto some sheet music - charity shop buy! - with the edges inked.|
Thanks for looking at this post and thank you to all those people who regularly visit my blog and to my new followers who are saying some lovely things about my work - I really do appreciate it.
Just stunning! Love this.ReplyDelete
Your card is very pretty! I love the blue tones and the way you have blended them so beautifully. The music paper in the background is perfect for your sentiment. I also love the sentiment...isn't it the truth? Your matted image of the Victorian lady in the center of your card really is striking. Now, you've got your girly card posted in plenty of time! Go watch some more Olympics! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 CandyReplyDelete

Just beautiful as ever Julia. Loving the layered inkiness/stamping on the edges and your focal image is divine. Good luck with the challenges and enjoy the olympics. Hugs, Buttons xReplyDelete
Lovely card. I love the blending of all those beautiful blues ... love the sentiment, too. I think music is strongly linked to feelings, if it's classic, hardrock, punk, or whatever :-)ReplyDelete
Had to smile because I recently discovered Billie Holiday and bought some music and a biography of her, but didn't get around to reading it yet.
Have a great Sunday, Suzanne
Absolutely beautiful, love the colours and style! ValerieReplyDelete

Thank you, Julia,ReplyDelete
for demonstrating the use of chalky ink in such a perfection! It gives tenderness of texture to your design and creates a kind of "floating" layer. So gorgeous! Love it!
Thanks for your nice visit and the holiday-wishes!
