Feeling Blue?

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?

Supplies:

Stamps: Trees (Darkroom Door), Simple Sayings 2
Inks: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue
Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Flourishes Classic White
