Baby boy blue, aahh!

Hello again, It's very quiet here in coffee towers mmm I wonder why? I hope things are good in your part of the world. I'm harbouring a cold, rotten little devil it is but I'm trying very hard to ignore it.
When I popped over to Mo Mannings digi shop yesterday I picked up this stamp, it's called Michael .


I first encountered it at Mina's blog, Pink Puds, WOW she has made a fantastic card with it HERE.


 I don't think I'm anywhere near to Mina's standard yet but I wanted to have a play with it. Using all blues was a real challenge, not my favourite colour unless teamed with something else, like green, oh yeah! that makes me happy but the challenge over at Copic Creations was using shades of blue! It's about time I did a few challenges, they focus the mind :0)




I've used Spellbinders for the sentiment shape with a Blonde Moments sentiment stamp and I hand cut the heart after I'd embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Copics to colour Michael. Papers are Basic Grey Lime Ricky. Oh yes I used Distress ink, Broken china and Faded Jeans. I can't believe I haven't stamped anything other than the sentiment, that doesn't happen very often!

I would like to enter my card for ;

Mo's challenge, number #74 Let's hear it for the boys

Copic creations Challenge, Shades of Blue

Simply Create, Monochromatic

I hope you like and have a great weekend ( well it's Friday tomorrow, were nearly there) TTFN :0)
