Emerging Color

I tried the Emerging Color technique from SCS - not too thrilled with the results - but hey, I tried! :D

The base card is actually two-tone by Bazzill; it's a darker blue on the side that you are seeing and then it's a lighter blue inside - I love that. I layered the Bazzill paper with Night of Navy. My focal point is the "emerging color"; but it's really hard to see. There are smaller snowflakes stamped in various blues; then I stamped the large snowflake with Versamark, then used clear embossing powder. I then used Brilliant Blue and brayered the entire piece of card stock - amazingly, the card stock I started with was Ivory - you'd never know with the blue brayered on there huh? I then stamped the swirls with Night of Navy.

I used the ticket punch in opposing corners for both the emerging color piece as well as the white card stock; then added the small pearls and ribbon.

We had a BB game at 10 a.m. and another one at 2 p.m., then I'm headed to work for a bit, then to church. Whew - what a busy, busy day!

I hope you're having a great weekend; thanks for peeking in! ~M.
