Shades of Blue

Good morning all, again I have scheduled this post as I am holiday and hope Google is playing nicely.  Here are a few DT samples for the Oak House Studio Challenge which starts today until the end of the month, the theme is "something blue".  Pop over to the blog and check the challenge out and join our happy band of followers on Google or facebook while you are there.

My DT samples all use Oak House Studio Inks In A Bottle, Pigment Ink Pads and the wonderful Oak House Stamps, which can be found HERE in the shop.

Three tags using different techniques, wash and stencil, dabbing with two colours to give a marbled effect and my favourite splatting.  The bottle inks used were totally turquoise and spode blue with powder blue and sea blue pigment ink pads.  Stamps used were double daisy which comes in two sizes and the tripple butterfly set.  The tags stamp and colour beautifully and are also available from the Oak House Studio shop.

The tripple butterfly set was used on this card, I used all three elements, wording and butterfly.  The butterfly was shadow stamped onto some Papermill blue card using sea blue pigment ink, the butterfly was stamped onto white card, coloured with a little pigment ink and fussy cut before placing over a stamped butterfly.  The ribbon was stamped using sea blue pigment ink too. 

For my third project I made a calendar, the base was stamped onto pale blue card with the double daisy in powder blue pigment ink and then outlined with a pen.  The back was done the same with the addition of a simple sentiment stamp in yummy chocolate pigment ink.  The panel was coloured with spode blue ink, doodled round and the triple butterfly stamp.

See you all soon, I will catch up with what you have all been up to when I get back.  Don't forget to visit the Oak House Studio Facebook Page to see what's going on and give us a LIKE while you are there, also check out the One Stamp Weekend coming up next month.
