Blue and green should ever been seen..........

................well at least that's what my Granny always told me, but I think I have to differ as I love the colour combo of blue and green......which is the theme Emma has come up with for this weeks Allsorts challenge, I love it Emma.

The card up top uses one of the lovely Crafts and Me fairy images which I stamped onto gloss cardstock, masked and added some background colour with the Speedball brayer. I coloured the image with Copics and mounted into some DP from stash, some lace, feather and a butterfly to embellish.


My second share is a nice bit of messy inking. To create the block background I dabbed TH broken chine and olive onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water and stamped onto a piece of Fabriano watercolour card. I then overstamped with Hero Arts H2365 and G3316 using the same inks and finally Penny Black 4042K using Hero chalk cerulean. The hinges are TH dies which I embossed here and there with detail gold along with the torn edges of a piece of Core-dinations cardstock.

Enjoy your weekend peeps.

  4. The colours look really good together. I was also told 'blue and green should never be seen', but that's part of the fun really isn't it? Not doing what we are told.

  12. The frist just took my breath away - the way that feather just complements the whole & the vibrancy of her dress is incredible. I too love these two colours together & cannot fathom why they should be separated when the sea naturally comprises them. Besides which cornflowers are blue & green. Love your description of embossing those hings "here & there" in the second.

  25. I agree with the blue and green a fav of mine too. Lovely cards, like the slightly different take on the one I made with you.
    As for my kitchen, we obviously both have impeccable taste LOL! Unfortunately my tiles are plain squares in different shades of browns and caramels no lemons!
