The Blues!

Impression Obsessions bimonthly challenge is (Not So) Moody Blues! I love working with blue, so I was quite happy for this challenge.  Brown is a great color to pair with blue, especially when making a card for a male recipient, as was the case with this card.  I used the Cover-a-Card Ornate Floral and the thank you from the Greetings: Top Edgers die set. Lately I've realized I have a lot of ink pads that are dried out, some of them deteriorated to the point that they will no longer wick the ink to the surface of the pad.  Not sure what the problem was with the craft ink I stamped on the blue cardstock with, but it did not do full coverage. So, before ironing off, I sponged reds and blues to distract from the imperfect image.  Happily, it actually looks better than it appears here, though I still would like to redo this card ... when I get some fresh craft ink!

Oh, this card is awesome. I love the little touches of red and blue. Sometimes, those little imperfections in the ink stamping add interest to the image. I LOVE IT. Thanks for sharing.
