Less is More - week 22 - Colour

Hi Everyone.  This week the LIMettes have been challenged to produce a CAS card using different shades of blue.  Again I've had to make a very quick and simple card and I have used my Stampin Up Rose embossing folder which is very versatile.  I have used a textured blue card, a blue vellum and plain blue card - all put through my Joy to emboss the card.  I then decided to decoupage one layer over the others and cut each down to suit.  I then used Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans to colour the embossed areas and, on the final piece at the front I sponged half of the card making sure to colour the areas that hadn't been embossed.  They have been placed on a white linen square card.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set CL001 and has been stamped directly onto the card using the Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Thanks for calling by.  Hope you all enjoy your weekend.
