Why, Hello, Blueberry Bushel!


Welcome to the new Colour Creations Blog Share!

This week we are focussing on Blueberry Bushel, one of the new In Colours. Blue is one of my favourite colours, so I decided to have a bit of fun this week.

I started with the background of my card, brayering Blueberry Bushel ink over the top of some Shimmery White cardstock. Once I was happy with the depth of colour I flicked some water over the cardstock with my fingers. I need to practice more, as some of my splatters were a little large!

The animals from A Little Wild were coloured using my Watercolour pencils and then blended using my Wink Of Stella pen - my favourite way to use the pencils. The sentiment was typed on some card using my old type writer then trimmed and popped up on Dimensionals.

Have you ever made a whoopsie on a card? This was my doozie!

Uh Oh! The 'Little One' was the very last thing I had to stamp on the inside, and I managed to stuff it up. Luckily, I had a brainwave on how to fix it - I turned it into the sun!

I simply punched a circle over where the sentiment was, trimmed the sentiment bits, adhered some Daffodil Delight card behind the circle and adhered the sentiment pieces over the top. Done! The rest of the inside was a mirror of the outside - so cute how they include the back side of the animals in the stamp set.

You can find the rest of this week's blogs over at Catherine's blog.

Bye for now,



  1. Great Card Tina, I do love this colour.

  2. I love your background and the cuteness of the whole card. Amazing job!

  3. Oh Tina, I love this! The brayered background is stunning and I think you e done great with the water flicking. Great cover up tip for the upside down sentiment too!

  4. Aww! This is too cute for words. Love the inside even more(if possible) than the front.

  5. That was a good save! Love the water splatter - what a nice effect.

  6. Such a sweet card. Love the idea.

  7. So much to love about your sweet little card Tina. I love the technique of blending the water colour pencils with Wink of Stella and what you did with your little whoopsie! lol
