Hello, Balmy Blue!

Hi!

Some of the Art With Heart team have decided to do a weekly Blog Share that highlights a different colour in our range each week. Today marks the first of the Blog Shares, and we are featuring the new colour, Balmy Blue.


Blue is one of my favourite colours, so I was very happy to kick off this new weekly event with a shade of blue. Balmy Blue is a mid-blue, but leans more towards being a softer blue. It's part of the new Subtles collection and it's a gorgeous colour.

I don't actually have anything in Balmy Blue, apart from the cardstock. I decided to make the cardstock a feature of the card by creating this layered scalloped section. It's my favourite part of the whole card!

I simply cut a heap of the smallest Stitched Shapes Circle, chopped each one in half and then layered them in alternating rows on a piece of Night Of Navy cardstock. I was surprised by how quickly and easily it came together!

You may have noticed that there's no stamping on this card - yet! It's partly because I'm waiting for my Balmy Blue inkpad to arrive, but also because I haven't decided what occasion to use this card for. It may well end up as more of a letter than a card, not requiring a sentiment at all. Who knows? LOL

Why don't you pop on over to Catherine's blog? She'll be hosting the Blog Share each week, so that's where you'll find the links to all of the people participating each time.

Bye for now,

Tina
