Bella Bleu to the Rescue

Bella Bleu to the Rescue published on 3 Comments on Bella Bleu to the Rescue

I needed a special card for one of my aunts who is a bit under the weather.  My aunt has an unbelievable sense of style and I can’t just send her any old card, you see.  Of course, I turned to some of the weekly challenges for inspiration.  First, I saw this really cool layout over at Mojo Monday.


I chose the square option and started playing with my stamps.  Things still weren’t coming together so I opted for a color challenge.  I saw the colors over at the Curtain Call Color Challenge:  Act 18.


Navy, check, Old Olive, check, Kraft, check, Brocade Blue….hmm.  Oh wait, I still have some left over Bella Bleu DSP!!!  While the colors in it are Not Quite Navy in the catalog, some of the coordinating blue looks like Brocade Blue.  And, I am pretty sure that using Bella Bleu paper insures a pretty card every time!!  Now, as you look at the picture, you’ll see that her color challenge really called for Ballet Blue (and also Whisper White).  I obviously missed those details and went stamping!  Only when I came to give credit did I notice my mistake.  So, Stacy, I am still linking this to your challenge since the colors were intended to be your idea! 

Mojo127, CurtainCall 18 - Thinking of my auntAlso, you can see I flipped the Mojo Monday sketch since it seemed to work better for me.  I used the Inspired by Nature set with a faux watercolor technique.  I applied ink with the Stampin’ Write markers and then spritzed the stamp with water to get the images to blur a bit.

I hope you like this one and, most importantly, I hope it provides my aunt with a little lift!  Thanks for stopping by…please let me know you visited.  Your comments are most welcome!
