Blue and green should never be seen ........

Morning folks,
I think it's still morning - I've been awake since the early hours so it feels like it should be well into the afternoon.  Two lots of washing done and out to dry, house tidy and my Less is More  challenge entry is all ready to upload.  Not a bad mornings work there.

As it's the first LIM challenge of the month, it's  COLOUR, and the girls have chosen ...

There is an old saying .....  Blue and Green should never be seen, Unless there's a colour in between!
Rubbish!  I like blue and green together although they're not colours that I tend to use a lot of, especially green.  Hmm ...... not sure why that is though.  Anyway, I've used them today and here's the result
I must say it doesn't look very green in this photo, it's alot brighter in real life - honest!

I used Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint Distress Inks around the edges and then coloured the image with Distress Markers in the same colours.
The stamp is called  day-dreams  and is from Penny Black (3947K) and the little sentiment is from a clear set by Kaisercraft that was one of my bargain purchases at a craft show.
I'm really pleased with the result, a nice CAS card for any occasion.  Maybe I'll use blue and green more often.

I'm off to watch the girls from Stamp Addicts, they're on Create and Craft with some new Christmas stamps.  They've got Nigel as the presenter so it should be a good one.
I think I'm going to tackle the ironing pile while I'm watching.  I got it out last night and wasn't sure whether to climb the thing or iron it!  It's huge ........ I'm afraid it's been the last thing on the list, I've had other things to do.  I'm running out of things to wear now,  so I really need to make a start.  Wish me luck. 
I'd rather be in the old craft room.

Have a lovely day and I'll see you all later.

Thanks for popping by

  3. Hi Linda, it is a gorgeous card! Although I am not a green lover, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters float my boat, I adore them and the colours on your card mix together so well. Yes, it is ironing here too, it is hot, but with visitors this weekend it must be done - maybe there is not quite as much as you have - lots of luck with yours. Anne x
