Teal blue...

Hi everyone, I've been meaning to share some more cards that I made which have a teal blue theme.....I think teal goes wonderfully with shades of brown so we have teal and copper, teal with Kraft and teal with chocolate. I have also been using up bits again, snippets that sit in my little gather pots on the work space. This post is short on information but hopefully rich in eye candy... to make up for my less frequent posts of late!

A mark making background and of course stitchery.

The copper flowers are left overs from a craft stamper post I did last year when I made far too many.

I have had this 'plastic' card stock'  for years, sometimes you just have to wait for the right project to come along.

The Hambly paper is even older (it's been in my for stroking only stash). The new favourite Tammy Tutterow blossom die has had a good airing and of course I've used the iconic Chloe stem die.

Using snippets is creatively very satisfying as I find there are usually a few things that will go together and it's easier to make something with less than when I look around all my stash and think 'Where do I start?'

3 more cards that are variations on the blossoms theme.

with border

or without. Distress inks in Vintage Photo and Broken China matched perfectly.

I'll be back soon with more cards...that aren't in teal! Happy crafting whatever you are doing. R x
