Love for blue...

Hello my dear bloggies... I kind of like this name :) I am back again with another set of cards. This time I got hooked to blue ;) My first card is inspired by the Color Q #208 challenge - BLACK WHITE PLUS ONE, and by the Sketch at Inkspirational #39. Since, there is a flower in my card, I will play it for Keep it Simple #23 - FLOWER.Also, for a change, I have used just the craft supplies and not my hand drawing in the first card :)

To make this card, I did the chevron (Cas-ual Friday's Zig zag Background) stamping in Archival Black ink. cut out the petals from Nestabilites Foliage dies in black and white. Stamped the butterfly (from Martha Stewart) in Tim Holtz aqua Ink and stuck it over flower. Finally used a paint brush to add the small polka dots of ink :) sentiment (Paper Sweeties - you make me smile set) was stamped to finish the card.
       


For my second card, I went with my usual style of masking and inking :) This card is inspired by the Colors at Color Throwdown #261 and by the Sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch #47. Here's my card...
To make this I decided to create a whimsical sky and greenscape representing the waves on the sketch. I also did masking using Nestabilities foliage die leaves on green side and hand drawn rays mask on the blue side. The sentiment was hand written using a fine point Sharpie Marker. Finally, some foam stickers were added. There you go, my card is all set :) I will also play this for Simon Say's stamp Wednesday challenge - ANYTHING GOES
                                      

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
