Make My Monday Challenge

The colour wheel challenge continues on Make My Monday and this week we are asked to use analagous colours and specifically the BLUES which lie next to each other on the colour wheel.

I selected a piece of light blue paper from my stash and stamped some swirls around the edge, added  ink to one side of the Blooming Season embossing folder from Craft Concepts and embossed some white card to make the next layer.  I then cut a labels shape with  a Nestability die and swiped it through some watered down Distress ink, then inked the Agapanthus Cluster stamp (Stampendous) with two colours of ink, spritzed with water and stamped twice onto the shape..  Final additions were some Marianne die cut swirls, a greeting and a flower made from a die cut and a couple of odd ones left in my embellishments box. It's been interesting working these colour wheel challenges and there's one more to come this month before they move onto a different theme.


  1. Pretty card all the blues.


  2. This is gorgeous Val, I love all the different blues. Even the embossing folder matches the stamp.
