Dream Valley DT Challenge #96 Blue Tones

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! We had a visit from the gorgeous granddaughter and her proud parents: there was lots of squeaking and giggling and cake-making!

It's Dream Valley Challenges time again! We have a colour challenge: Blue Tones The rule is, except for skin and hair colour on any image, just use Blue. You can go CAS or as elaborate as you like, as long as it's Blue!

We have the fabulous Lacy Sunshine as our Sponsor this time! I have used the very elegant Victorian Winter Emily on my card.

Isn't she chic?! I coloured her in Promarkers: Denim Blue and Pastel Blue for her gown and gloves, and a brighter set, French Navy, Cyan, Sky Blue and Powder Blue for her accessories. her fur trim has been Stickled.

The background papers are from an old pad by Paper Artsy called 'Rum and Raisin' but the middle of the heart is from stash. The heart itself is cut with a die from 'Heartfelt Creations'. The sentiment is from the 'Gratitude' stamp set by Penny Black. The ribbon, broderie anglaise, blue stars and sequins are from stash.

Do sashay over to Dream Valley and see all the marvellous variations on Blue Notes that my clever teamies have created, then be inspired to have your own 'Blue Period.' After all, if it was good enough for Picasso it's certainly good enough for the rest of us!

Have a great week, and thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
