Feeling Blue?Posted: July 3, 2011 Filed under: CAS, Trees 25 Comments
The challenge at Less is More this week is to use shades of blue. I often do snow scenes with shades of blue so that is what I tried initially. It seems that I am a seasonal stamper. I could not managed a successful snow scene when it was 31°C outside! I decided to stick with the landscape idea but forget the snow. Although it still looks a little snowy it is meant to be a misty blue hillside. I used Night of Navy for the trees, stamping the pale one without re-inking then a mix of blues for the sponging.
Speaking of shades of blue, I am not sure that this photo is exactly representative of my card. I edited the photo on one computer, then went to two other computers to compare. All the monitors in our house show the colours slightly differently. Apparently what we need is a monitor calibrater. Who knew?
Stamps: Trees (Darkroom Door), Simple Sayings 2
Inks: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue
Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Flourishes Classic White
