Feeling the Blues

It's time for a new challenge over at CES, and our lovely host Vicky, has chosen the theme...
Feeling The Blues.

We don't just want a little bit of blue, 
we want to see blue used as your main colour.

I went for a Christmas card - ice blue and a dab of sparkle always looks good to me!   I coloured my image with Copics, added a little stickles glitter and popped her up on foam pads.
I finally got round to buying some embossing powder, so I stamped my 'Merry Christmas' in blue and embossed it with clear powder.

I tried this piercing technique
around the paper edges,
it's the first time I've done it, so it's not very neat,
but I kind of like the way it looks.

I hope you'll join in the challenge this week - don't forget you have the chance to win a £10 voucher to spend at Crafty Emma's Store (not inc. P&P) and she has some lovely new papers available to pre-order right now.

Hi Caroline - I love your card and the colouring is just awesome - especially her hair! I love the piercing technique - if you want straight lines you can buy a Tim Holtz Ruler with holes in which are just perfect for poking through. Thanks for your lovely comments. I look forward to seeing your next creation. Hazel x
