Cards in Envy Challenge – Deep Blue!

Who doesn’t love blue?  I know I sure do.  For this Cards in Envy Challenge I discovered a new technique I found on Pinterest using a base of white pigment ink followed by Distress Ink after it’s dried.  WOW, does this given some dynamic results.

Remember, at Cards in Envy we ask that you make your card fit into a standard A2 card though, we have loosened up our requirements and no longer require a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card as long as it fits in the A2 Envy.

The colors I used with this card is Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire  Distress Inks over white pigment ink from Simon Says Stamp.  You can find the link on how to do this technique here.  My sentiment is by Hero Arts “Happy Mother’s Day” set.

I hope you will join us at Cards in Envy this week and show us some Deep Blue cards!  The challenge will run through Sunday, May 29th.
