Shades of Blue

Well I was browsing blogs for inspiration this afternoon when I came across the Less is More Clean and Simple challenge again. I haven't participated in any challenges for a while so I sat down and had a go. I think there are a few too many elements for this to be truly CAS. But I am getting better at learning to leave white space and simplify my designs. I also think this would have been simpler by a mile had I been able to find my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and could've lined up the little elements without having to punch them first. Oh how I love having an untidy craft room (I think I know what i'll be doing tomorrow).

I decided to have a go at using my Itty Bitty Bits stamp set and matching buttons as they've been sat in my cupboard unused for ages. I quite like the effect. And the Stampin' Up! blues are my favourites so I took this opportunity to use them all: Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Baja Breeze and Bashful Blue.I embellished with Basic Rhinestones and a greeting from Curly Cute coloured with my Stampin' Writes.

I have another idea brewing. Might have a go at that tomorrow and enter again.

Happy Crafting all ;0)
