Baby blue and aqua

I liked the challenge of the words at The Challenge this week.  I think I managed simple, butterfly, monochromatic and circle. Not so sure about friendship. It’s blue, because blue and aqua have come up a lot in challenges in the past couple of weeks.

Stamps: L’Aquarelle butterfly and Uniko’s Originally Organic, fast becoming a go-to set for me (Wish I hadn’t missed the matching Happy Succulents!) and Simply Said. Stamped in Distress Ink: peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon. With two different sizes of pearls.


The design is based on Narelle’s sketch from Just Add Ink #370.

And also entering this one into Cards in Envy’s baby blue (or pretty pink) challenge.

Today’s haiku:

Like my moods, shading
Colours gradually change
Neither wrong nor right

    This is a lovely CAS card Helen. I love how the foliage trails around just the butterfly might fly! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
