Feeling Blue LNS Challenge

Happy Thursday from the Chicagoland area - we are having a mix of sleet, rain and snow today and I am so ready for warmer weather!  The older I get, the more I crave sunshine, warmth, and the feel of sand between my toes!

We have another great challenge for you today, which is create a project using blue tones.  Please load your wonderful creation HERE.

For my project I decided to showcase the set, Swallowtail, from the current Spring Catalog.  I have seen some wonderful projects done using this set as both a focal point and background accent.  I stamped the image onto Whisper White c/s using a black StazOn inkpad.  I then colored in the image using Pacific Point, Bashful Blue and Baja Breeze inks.  I mixed a drop of Bashful Blue ink with some Dazzling Details to give the image some "dazzle".  I also feathered the edges with a VersaMark inkpad and then dipped the edges in Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. More details of what I used are below:

Stamps: Swallowtail
Inks: Black StazOn, Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Bashful Blue, VersaMark IP
Papers: Pacific Point DSP, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice Bigz Die, Bashful Blue Brads, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dazzling Details, Dimensionals, Scissors, Watercolor Brush
