Feelin’ Blue


For this card, I decided to play off a both a sketch and colour challenge – it is always more fun to do two challenges in one!

The sketch for this card came from Karen Giron’s Sunday Sketch and the colours from Pals Paper Arts Monochromatic Challenge.

The base for this card is Brocade Blue and I took another Brocade Blue layer and ran it through the Square Lattice embossing folder (which I’d brayered with Night of Navy first). I then roughed it up a wee bit and adhered it to the card.

For the focal panel – I embossed the Motorcycle with white embossing powder on Whisper White cardstock. I then sponged Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Bashful Blue ink over it. I then ran a strip of Night of Navy cardstock and tore one end. I also added a bit of Bashful Blue grosgrain over it.

To keep the ribbon in place and for a bit of extra “somethin’ somethin” I added a jumbo Whisper White grommet with a Star Designer Brad in the centre. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and is from All Holidays.

Oh, and just because I thought it’d be fun, I added a strip of Bashful Blue cardstock along the bottom which was punched with the Pinking Hearts Border punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
