Shades of Blue

I was in the mood to use my favourite colour today ... blue! 

Whilst blog hopping I happened upon a card by Maile Bells on her post HERE. She had used the masking technique and it had me thinking I hadn't used this technique in a while.

So combining some shades of blue to stamp the pocket watch image from TIME and a little masking I came up with this get well card. 

I love one layer cards as it makes posting them out super easy! I added a metal clip to the top right just for a little added interest but I wished I'd put it the other side now I look at the photo while I type! Oh well, next time!

Such a super simple & relatively quick card to make if you need a masculine get well card. The most time consuming part of the card is cutting the mask out, but the pocket watch is a reasonable size so it only took minutes! I used 3 inks from SU! Marina Mist, Pacific Point & Night of Navy and I love how they sit together. 

This card could easily be suitable for a lady just by switching the colours for pinks or purples & adding a little loop of ribbon instead of the metal.

One more thing before I go to have my tea, did you see THIS over on The Stamp Attic Blog? Yes, I'm out and about again & this time I will be demoing Uniko Studio Stamps at The Stamp Attic on March 10th! 

I'd LOVE to see you so pop on by if your in the area - there's other stuff too going on in the shop! Fun Huh! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
