Shades of Blue

I find myself more and more drawn to CAS cards, and have started playing along with the Less is More challenge.  This week the theme is "Shades of Blue".  Since blues of all shades are my favorite colors I just had to give this a try.  I pulled out some Hero Arts wood block stamps from 2002 and 2003 and a newer clear set for my entry, and used 3 shades of aqua ink:


supplies: white card stock, Hero Arts E2759 Drooping Petals (part of a Poetic Prints set), tumbled glass distress ink, F2623 A Real Flower Drooping, broken china distress ink, CL129 Anytime Messages, VersaFine Deep Lagoon ink


Since this card is all stamping, I'm entering again into Moxie Fab World's Stamp It! Cards Week challenge.
