Its not blue...
I've been on my travels again this weekend visiting the lovely Crafty Knits in Chorley as well as spending a day in the brilliant Craft Barn in Redhill I meant a wonderful bunch of people in both locations and had a great weekend!
I'm sorry to ask this again but is it too dark? lol I made this card after the dark one from last week (I do tend to make cards in series using the same range of colours as you may be able to tell form my Blue fetish!)
I cut and embossed the Greek Island collection background in taupe card and inked over the embossing with shabby shutters distress ink and a smoothie (which are back in stock yay!) I then used Vintage photo on the trellis to give some definition and foam mounted the piece over a mat of the taupe card.
I edged the piece with more of the vintage photo then layered it with a piece of Brunswick green foundation card that I embossed with the A4 rambling blossoms embossing folder from CE.
Next I cut one of the Greek island collection borders in the green and ran it down the left hand side. Next I cut the Best Wishes expressions die in the green and the taupe and using spray glue, offset them with the taupe on top so that a shadow is given around the words. I mounted this onto a shaded piece of taupe cut with one of the shapes in the Greek island collection and finished.
The question is again is this a little dark, this is the last of my current shaded dark cards and I really want to know if I should start another series? lol
