A Variety of Blues

Winter Blues

A while back I tried making this plaid panel for a colour challenge but hated the result and didn’t use it. It has been sitting on one side for more than a week along with a pile of left over strips from various projects. On Monday I had the idea of using the strips by sticking them onto a scrap piece of CS and the striped piece is from one of those that I made. I made no attempt to match the stripes in width just randomly selected the ones I wanted to use on each panel. Many bits were from mirror CS so a lot of the diagonal stripes are shiny. Another happy accident occurred when I placed the striped piece on top of the plaid and decided they looked good together.

I added the layers to the black card front and then using my new MFT word die and another scrap piece of PP I die cut it and glued as you see here. To finish the card I die cut the snowflake from pale blue mirror CS using a die from a Susan Wilson set. In making this card initially the inspiration was just from what was on my desk, so another happy accident is that the new challenge from Double D is all about blue and this card fits the challenge too.

  1. Thanks Gerry – its funny how some of my cards come together just because of how I placed the disparate pieces on my desk.

  2. It’s always fun when you can salvage something you thought was less than desirable and turn it into a lovely new creation. Your blue stripes on the plaid background is really cool. Great snowflake.
