Blue Ornaments

Terrific challenges for yesterday and today! Didn’t have a chance to do the Featured Stamper (FS244)  yesterday so I’m combining it w/ today’s Technique Challenge (TLC346). Congrats to Julie! Loved her gallery and I chose Lace Edges to case. I kept the layout and colors similar but used different images, added the ornaments and used some embossing down one side instead of the punched border.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. My stacked background was done by first stamping the snowflake bg w/ the sky blue ink. I stamped portions of the lg snowflake w/ sky blue & true blue pigment inks. The star like ornament was stamped w/ silver and the edges were sponged.

The 2 ornaments & sentiment were stamped w/ the midnight ink and I added some color to the ornaments w/ markers & a silver gel pen. On the right side of the ultramarine layer, I embossed only the right side of a lg frame embossing folder.

Originally, the crochet lace under the sentiment tag was white and it was going to stay that way. But I had a little mishap w/ an ink pad so I just colored the whole piece dk blue. Oh well. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
