So how did I work this theme into my card?
I decided to create a New year’s themed card and add some blue in the glasses and the the ring.
I used a blue patterned designer paper and embellished the designer paper and corners of the focal image with glitter!
(Just a little something new, shiny and bright for the New Year!)
The edges of the image were heavily distressed.
The focal image was masked and the background colored with cool grey Copic markers and bubbles were added for fun.
Dots were added to the background to represent confetti and then sprayed with iridescent glitter to give the feel of magic – that comes with the New Year!
We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this ‘Blues’ challenge! 🙂
