Shades of blue

There was some serious delving in the snippets box for this card! I needed several pieces of blue card and patterned paper, to match all the shades in a Kaleidacolour Blue Breeze pad. Once I'd found them, I embossed the plain ones and matted the patterned one - the knitting effect ef is a Crafters Companion one and the more ornate one was a magazine freebie, and the patterned paper was one I downloaded for a project several years ago.

Then I brayered a die cut with the Kaleidacolour pad, and spritzed it with water to help to blend the colours. Once it was dry I stamped and embossed the Penny Black "Quite dandy" image.

I am sharing this with
