Shades of Blue

Now that I'm getting back in the swing of creating, I'm trying to use some of my NBUS supplies.  And I've now realised just how much I have! I'm going to be busy.

I have the new Altenew Swirl Motif die and thought it would be fun to see how it would turn out with some distress graded cardstock. I did the base in pale blue and the outline as darker on the edges and lighter in the middle.  Not so easy to see.

Although the die as it is supposed to be used is lovely, I couldn't resist the negative cut!

Blue Birthday Bouquet

Blue is my favourite colour - if you haven't guessed by now!

So what better than a little blue bouquet with a silk ribbon for a Birthday wish. With the delicate border die from Ornate Borders.

More new un-inked products from my stash ... and a stencil with shading added using Prismacolour Pencils. 

A close up so you can see the shading on the stencil.

Beautiful You

It has taken some time for me to get into the creative mode. There was a challenge (that I missed the deadline) with a theme of "city", and as I was going through my stencils, I spotted the city skyline. And it had yet to be inked! So a good place to start.
