Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge # 40: Blue



Yah! It's Tuesday, my favourite day of the week!...And you all know why right! Well you should by now...Don't I gush enough about Twilight Tuesday?

Anyway, this weeks challenge theme is by our beautiful and multi talented Jen...Did you see our fantastic new blog design at TT yet?... Jen designed that! Cool huh! Ok, where was I? Oh yeah... This weeks theme... For this week's theme Jen kept things nice and simple and chose...

"Blue"

Jen writes " Blue. Edward loves Bella in Blue.

"That colour blue looks lovely with your skin," he said, watching me. I was surprised; I looked down, flushing, of course." - Bella Swan, Twilight, pg 148.

Creative Portion: So this week the challenge is simple....Create anything you want focusing on the colour blue. Does it have to be Bella's blue, no. Just blue. Twilight related? Well, hopefully, but it's up to you.

Comment Portion: What's your favourite colour to wear and why? Are there any colours that you just hate wearing?"



So simple and so easy, so relaxing and fun.... Well for me anyway since blue has always been my favourite colour... Right up till I started scrapbooking and cardmaking...Then I discovered different types of blue, brown, red... ohhhhh and greens! There are some beautiful greens out there! I have noticed (more and more as they get older) that because I live in a male dominated house that I tend to go for more pinks and purples... especially with belongings...My boys don't like using pink drink bottles, towels etc and this way it usually doesn't go missing or get dirty.

So I found this gorgeous blue paper called "Topiary, Vintage Beauty" by Ruby Rock-It. I fell in love...I'm so easy! And this is what I came up with...

I used my "Butterflies are Free" Gel-a-Tin stamps, cause you know how much I love them and I even got really creative and sewed around the outside!


I embossed the butterfly...It really does look better when you do it that way and of course embossed it again to give it a 3D sort of effect....

Paper: Topiary, Vintage Beauty, Blue and Brown Bazzil cardstock.
Stamps: Gel-a-Tins, Butterflies Are Free, Hero Arts.
Ink: Versafine, black and Tim Holtz, Walnut Distress.

Embossing Powder: Polysparkle

And then because I really love this paper I made another card....

This card just came out of nowhere I hadn't even planned on making it! I just couldn't resist using my new Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm (thanks Margie). I find these stamps so beautiful to use and I just love colouring in the images...So relaxing!

Here is a closer look at my colouring in...

Paper: Topiary, Vintage Beauty. Jenni Bowlin, blue and white bazzil.
Stamps: Anya, The Greeting Farm. Hero Arts.
Ink: Versafine-black, Tim Holtz-Walnut Distress.
Pencils: Derwent. Punch: Fiskars Border.
