When making my previous post for a winter challenge I also had an idea for another card and this card is the result. It seems to be perfect for this, new to me, challenge too so I’m entering it. In going through my paper scraps file I found some precut pieces of cs that I had forgotten about. The cs is blue and I wondered what would happen if I stenciled different blues using a circle stencil directly on top of the blue card stock. This is what I ended up with and I quite like the look. At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it and set it aside so I could finish up my other project. After searching through my stamp sets I found the windmill stamp, by Marianne Design, that I bought during a visit to my sister in the Netherlands. Windmills, Holland and blue fit together in my mind so I stamped the windmill, fussy cut it and popped it up on the bokeh layer. By the way, the bokeh layer worked out because I used Distress Oxides. Any other ink probably wouldn’t have worked over the top of the blue cs and I used several different blues as well. It took me a while to figure out which sentiment I wanted to use and in the end I used a new Spellbinders set, I got on sale at SSS, called Just a note sentiments and tag. In this case the sentiment wouldn’t work in the die and I didn’t want to do stamp surgery, so I used another Spellbinders die set called labels. I really like the font used for this stamp too I also stamped thank you from the same set on the inside. After adding this to the layer and then adding it to the card front, I set it aside as it needed something else and I wasn’t sure what until this morning. I remembered that I had some coloured flat back embellishments and the blue ones were perfect for finishing this card. I am happy with how this turned out and using coloured inks on coloured cs is a good idea too.
