Blessed

Good Morning.

We are half way through the month and it's time for another card for 
Our challenge this month is to use Blue and Yellow.



I began by creating my blue and yellow background using the Embossing Folder Stamping Technique.  
It is a very simple technique and a great way to get more mileage from your embossing folders.
I inked the inside of my EB folder with Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean Distress inks, sprayed with water then pressed onto my paper.  
Using my Misti, I stamped the wildflowers from a set by Tim Holtz with black Memento ink.
I stamped a faint text in the background using the Script stamp from Penny Black to add some extra interest. The sentiment is also from a PB set called Friendship.




Adding my card to these challenges:

Craft Stamper Magazine- ANYTHING GOES

The Color Throwdown- BLUE, YELLOW, BLACK

City Crafter- BLUE


I hope you will come and join us at The Flower Challenge.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies: stamps- TH, Penny Black/ ink- Memento, Distress/ EB folder- SU/ Mini Mister/ MISTI
