Addicted to Stamps blue challenge 1

Hi everybody, Addicted to Stamps challenge this week (Addicted to {blue} challenge 1) is to make a card using the colour BLUE.

So here is my offering. :)

1. Take a piece of white card and colour all over using Colorbox multi-color pigment ink pads and applicator.
2. Stamp vase and flowers image in black Memento, paint image using Tim Holtz distress inks and water brush, overstamp the whole thing with crackle background and distress edges with Tim Holtz distress ink and distress tool.
3. Cut two pieces of Coredinations card, emboss one piece with Sizzix Embossing Boutique and stamp the other with swirl stamp and dye ink.
4. Attach all pieces to card blank, add some little flower embellishments, glitter glue and nice threads. Voila!

Whoops, nearly forgot the credits, flowers and vase stamp by A Stamp in the Hand, crackle background by Judikins, swirl stamp by DeNami.
