Shades of Blue

SHADES of BLUE is the title for this week's Less is More challenge .



The brief:
"You can use a white card base, but we do want to see more than one colour of blue, not just one!"

 
This is my submission
 
 
I bought several Crafter's Workshop 6x6 templates a while ago but these, until now, had not seen the light of day! I attached the butterfly one to a 15cm square card with a little Blu Tack ( I love Blu Tack - it has got me out of a number of tight spots - not all crafty!!)  This then acted as a mask when I applied a mixture of Stormy Sky Distress Ink and Impress Lavender.
I stencilled the dragonfly and two of the butterflies on white card and cut them out.  This time I used Broken China Distress Ink and Adirondack Denim.
 
Now my weapon of choice to apply the ink was........a shaving brush. It was a new one that my dad hadn't got round to using.  I am going to Doncaster next week and , at the top of my shopping list are those Ink Duster Blending brushes.  However, the shaving brush will stay in my toolbox. I'm sure that I will find another use for it.
 
 Finally,I though that a little bling was in order, so............. out came the Stickles.
 
The sentiment is from a set by Personal Impressions which I attached with 3D foam pads.
 
You can see that I shaped the wings before gluing to the base.
