So this has turned into the 'how many different shades of blue can you turn one card into' post!! Not intentionally of course.
So please excuse the dreadful quality here. I might re-take them tomorrow when the light is better (I always say that and I never do, but it sounds good lol xxx)
So I got a lovely bundle of goodies from the sweetness that is Tracy at Dies To Die For and this lil poppet and her blueberries was in it. How could I resist?
So I've used her for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge which is a sketch by Mina - and a fab one it is as well. And the challenge is sponsored by Tracy as well so it all fitted together nicely.
So this is the card and shade 1 - a bit of a cornflower blue tone in this shot. I used PMs and did the bling thing.
Check out Tilda's blue suede shoes (don't step on them will ya lol xxx)
OK, shade 2 here.
We've now got a bit of airforce blue.
I think I should point out that IRL this is a gorge colour. It is PP, Stripes and the colour is'blueberry' (to match the image cos I am such a saddo!!).
And wooohooooo, the MS doily punch is back in use.
And there's a sneaky bit of Cuttlebugging going on as well!!!
The ribbon was from the local floristry warehouse that I go to - cheap as chips as his orangeness David D would say :)
Ohh now I'm not sure what you'd call this shade - periwinkle maybe?
Or is that a tad pretentious?
It's in between the cornflower blue and the airforce blue so how about cornforce blue.
Ohh I am just rambling now!!!!
Pretty isn't it.
So now for the excuses, nay reasons for the cock up that has been the pics.
OK, yesterday I ran out of batteries for my camera (which was why I was late with me Anya card). I ended up getting some from our village shop and I reckon they must have been in there since World War 2 cos they had about as much life in them as a comatose sloth!!!
So today, I make me card and get it finished just as the last of the good light is fading. I take a couple of pics and then the flippin sloth batteries die. So I legged it back to the village shop and bought some new ones, got back and tried to take some more pics. But it was heading towards dusk - not good - so I ended up putting the lights on.
Result? Crap pictures.
So some are too dark and some have a lovely yellowy tinge that make them look like they've been in a room full of Capstan Full Strength chain smokers. Sorry peeps but I hope you get can get the general idea.
And on that sorry note, I am off to sort out me card for tomorrow's Papertake Weekly. Now you don't want to miss this cos we have a very special guest designer tomorrow. She's very verrrry famous - that is all I will say. Tune in and see who it is if you get a sec. And you might even see a decent pic from me if I shape meself and get the pic done before the twighlight zone set in!!!!
Have a fab night and see ya tomorrow xxxxx
