A Splash of Blue

Happy Saturday Crafters!

Are you doing buckets of fun stuff this weekend? If you are enjoy them for the both of us as I am working all weekend. I did find time to play along with The Play Date Cafe's color splash challenge. This time it is a splash of a vibrant blue . . LOVE!

Here is what I came up with

I super love the way it turned out :) I started by masking my white card base and then stamping the houndstooth background in London Fog by Memento. 

After I removed the masks I stamped the chevron for My Happy in jet black archival ink by Ranger. Do I even make cards that don't include this stamp anymore?! I so love this stamp :) 

I stamped the tea rose on a scrap piece of white and colored just the blooms with copics. I used B21, B24, and B28. I trimmed out the rose and sprayed it down with Tattered Angels in Pearl for some shimmer. I popped the flower up on foam and called it lovely :)

Thanks for visiting, hope you get some crafty time in!!


  1. KEL! This is GORGEOUS!!!! I so love it! :)

  2. Very pretty! I love the splash of blue and I love that nice bold look of the black archival ink. I'll have to start using mine more often!

  3. I call it lovely too! Such a fresh, current look to your card, obviously with your patterns, but also with that cobalt blue splash of color!

  4. So beautiful, Kelly. Love the bg you created for the flower.

  5. You should love this, it's STUNNING. So cool and graphic, and that vivid splash of blue... I love this card so much!

  6. Such a wonderful design and beautiful card. Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date Cafe!

  7. WOW! Kelly, this is AMAZING! I don't even know what to say! LOVE all the super "in" patterns, and that blossom is the perfect touch of softness! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!
