Clearly Inspired Challenge #20 .... Color Challenge

The Clearly Inspired Challenge for December is up today. Woohoo!! How fun! I love challenges, and this one was particularly fun - a color challenge!

The challenge - 3 Shades of Blue with white or black as a neutral.

Enter on Lori's Blog for your chance to win a great prize!!!

My sample for this challenge incorporates the new Blooming Bouquet dies from Clear Dollar Stamps, as well as Snow Flourishes from the October stamp release.

I stamped the bigger flakes around the larger die cuts to make the edges of the flakes show behind the smaller die cuts. Ink was added to my Cuttlebug folder to give the effect in the background.

A close up to show the shades of blue that I used.

Stamps - Snow Flourishes
Paper - Still Waters, Billowing Clouds, white
Ink - Bordering Blue, black, white
Accessories/Tools - Blooming Bouquet dies, Cuttlebug, folder, pop dots, crystals, snowy ribbon
Technique - Faux Letterpress

Run on over to Lori's blog to get started on this great challenge!!

Have an awesome Friday and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!
