Dream Valley DT Challenge #118 Use the Colour Blue

Good morning! I hope you all had a good weekend!

We have a colour challenge at Dream Valley this fortnight: Blue. That is, everything except an image's skin and hair, should be in shades of blue.

Looking at my card, you can see that I used shades of blue that are a bit too close in colour, I needed more contrast. You never stop learning in this cardmaking lark!

I used Lil Lovely Hearts by our sponsor, Sherri Baldy, and coloured her with Promarkers. The falling hearts have been Glossy Accented, the rose has been glittered, and a blue gem heart is added on top of the heart on her blouse.

The papers are by Pink Petticoat. The ribbon and broderie anglaise are from stash, the sentiment is by Clearly Besotted from the Mini Basic Banners stamp set. On the right I added some flourishes cut with the Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish die and some flower shapes which have a blob of stickles in the centre. As I said, not enough contrast!

Our sponsor is Sherri Baldy Designs

Do go and see the pretty inspirational cards my teamies have made, then have a go at the Challenge!

Thanks for looking!

Monochrome is great and so is your card, you're being too hard on yourself.
