Another Blue Card

I was joking with a friend that this is part of my "blue period" since the card I mad yesterday was blue too.  Blue is my favorite color so I guess it's no surprise that I use a lot of blue.  Again, I made this card just because.  It was for no special reason.  After I finished it, I looked at today's Paper Playful to see where it fit.

It is another shaped card, a side step card, cut on my Cameo.

Since all the materials I used on my card yesterday were still on my craft table, I decided to use more of them for this card.  I tried something different for the coloring of my image.  I printed the image with Memento Jet Black Ink onto a piece of American Craft cardstock.  It was an experiment that actually worked.  I then colored it with Copics.  I expected that the colors would bleed  but they didn't. Voila, success!

Materials used:
American Craft cardstock - solid colors
Basic Grey - Marrakech 6x6 paper pad
Michael's paper flowers
Michael's bling
Spellbinders dies
Cheery Lynn leafy flourish dies
Technique Tuesday sentiment stamp
