The VC Stamp Challenge this week is a colour challenge using dark blue, light blue and ivory. I used Willy the Worm, coloured with a few shades of blue pro-markers. I used an A5 ivory card with some scalloped card on top, shaded in blue round the sides and stamped a flourish (Heidi Grace), to which I added a couple of gems. I added the number 40 and a sentiment. The blue strip was from another card, and the gems are K&Co. Willy is matted and layered on light blue, then dark blue Bazzil. I've also dabbed some blue ink over the card lightly. I'm not too sure about this card, I think it's too plain, needs more blue or something.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
