Feeling like some blues ...

Today at Pals Paper Arts we are having a blue week and it's a great thing!  So find that blue cardstock, ink and accessories and join in the fun!

Oh, my inky fingers had a good time with this one.  I inked up my stamp in Marina Mist and then took my Not Quite Navy marker and thumped it over the flowers.  Gives the stamp a whole different look.  After stamping the image on my paper, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and restamped over it with my versamark.  I know, I'm wearing out this technique, but I like the end result.

Stamps:  My Friend
Paper:  Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Vanilla
Ink:  Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Versamark
Accessories:  Bashful Blue ribbon, Marina Mist designer button, itty bitty punch, hole punch, rhinestones, sharpie marker, sponge, stamp-a-ma-jig, clear embossing powder, heat tool
All products are SU unless otherwise noted.

I'm at Auburn with Michael for his orientation. He will be living here full-time in a few short weeks.  Wow, summer is going so fast! 

Have a great day,
Pam~

The embossing adds such a nice touch to this card. ZAnd the torn corner definitely adds interest.
