Shades of Blue at Craftaholics R Us

Hello Everyone,
Yesterday was Teacher Appreciation Day and my students sure did spoil me with some sweet treats...cupcakes, brownies, cannolis, M&Ms, and a box of chocolates. One of my students said my sweet tooth was going to be hurtin'. I surely didn't disagree! : )

 The challenge at Craftaholics R Us begins today. 

This Week's Challenge...
~ Blue ~

Here is my Design Team project...
Blue is one of my favorite colors, and since I have been collecting these alcohol inks I figured why not combine the two together. I love the results!

I used a MFT scalloped rectangle along with a MFT stitched rectangle. The Tim Holtz ink colors are: Sailboat Blue, Cloudy Blue, and Turquoise. I cut celebrate and the balloons out of white card stock. The final touch was adding a twine bow in blue. 

Just as easy...same color inks but used a different technique. I cut the THANKS with my Cuttlebug.
Hope you will join us at Craftaholics R Us this week for our "Blueschallenge. Be sure to check out the other crafty creations.

Stay Creative,
