Welcome to a New Try It Out Tuesday Challenge!!!
Good Morning!!! Our Try It Out Tuesday Challenge for this week is..."I've Got the Blues". You are to create a card/project that includes a stamped image and any mix of blues and one neutral and/or metallic, such as silver or gold. For my card, I chose to use one of the beautiful images from the Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #2 made exclusively for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This charming image is...Cherry Blossom...and since I am part Japanese (actually Okinawan), I fell in love with this exotic beauty right away! I selected a Paper Studio DP called Cute Blue Patchwork to show the varied shades of blue. For my neutral color, I chose white; and for my metallic color, I selected a pretty copper card stock called Penny Paper by DCWV. Miss Blossom was heat embossed and colored with Prismacolor markers. A touch of Stickles was added to the blossoms on her wonderful outfit. You know me...I am addicted to the sparkly stuff...even if it is only a little. The sentiment is computer generated and is pronounced ko-nee-chee-wa. It means "Hello" in Okinawan...actually, the formal meaning is good afternoon, but many people use it more loosely as an hello:o) I know the card is pretty bad, but time did not permit me to make another one:o( Sorry!!! I will do better next week...that is, if all goes well with mom's surgery this Thursday. Please, say a prayer for her if you can.
I hate to cut this post short, but I have another long day ahead of me. I do hope you plan to join in on the fun and play along with us in this week's challenge! Remember to use the keyword/tag TIOT44 when uploading your masterpiece to SCS or PCP.
Have a fabulous Tuesday!!!
