Sisterhood of Crafters Winter 'Blues' and Retro Rubber Challenge 223 | Winter Blue Ombre!





This is my first time entering a challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters. Looks like a lot of fun and I hope to be back often. The Sisterhood of Crafters is challenging us to incorporate BLUE into our cards. Retro Rubber is also asking we incorporate blue, specifically a series of the blues (midnight blue, violet blue, sky blue and white).   I used a very old Pure Innocence stamp, Warmest Wishes (pre-2000).  My blues are subtle in this photo, I used lines of Brusho watercolor powders, wet them and let the colors run into each other. After the watercolor panel dried, I stenciled snow on the card with embossing paste.

Enjoy!
