Chintzinblue

When the Moxie Fab World: The Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge was announced, the idea of blue chintz kept nagging at me. And, I knew the Large Flower Background stamp by Hero Arts would be *perfect* to duplicate that effect. Finally got a moment to try it out!

Stamped it with Faded Jeans Distress Ink onto Smooth Bristol, because I wanted to watercolor it quickly and I knew this ink would bleed out very well on this paper for the look I wanted.

Mounted it to a simple white card front and white embossed a greeting on some deep blue card stock and 3D mounted that to the front. Promptly sat on my hands.

Yes. I do likey. Quite muchly.
