Favorite Color


We all have a favorite color, I'm sure - and mine just happens to be blue! So when I saw this challenge at Always Playing With Paper, I knew I HAD to play along. This is only their 2nd challenge - but it's a fantastic one with the challenge being to use the colors Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, and white (or similar colors).

As instructed I used the colors listed for the challenge. I embossed the Bashful Blue with my Swiss Dots Embossing folder. The image is stamped with my markers using the Watercolor Trio set (2 different images). The sentiment is from Lots of Thoughts (also SU). The small butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Wings die. I attempted to somewhat pleat the Old Olive ribbon and thought it came out ok. The image is framed using a rectangle Nestabilities, sponged around the white with the Brilliant Blue, and then popped up on dimensionals.


Thanks for stopping by.....................
