Coloring Down the Lines

Happy Wednesday blog hop.  Is everyone in icy surroundings today?  Our trees are covered in ice, which is so beautiful, and so with today's challenge.  This is a very, cold, icy looking inspiration photo.  Did you see what Amanda did with hers?  The colors we had to work with were: Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, and Lost Lagoon.  Amazingly, I saw a card done by Leena Girsa not too long ago, that made a background using all these beautiful blues.  Her recipe for this background was this:  Use a white cardstock and sponge the following colors in this order.  Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, and Island Indigo.  Then spritz on the "Coral" stamp from"BY the Tide" (I used Gorgeous Grunge) because my daughter has the Tide set, and stamp onto card with Stampin' Mist.  Then use versamark all over and heat some irredescent ice.  I was out of that, so i used dazzling diamonds.  Gorgeous huh?  Then I made a band from "Seasonally Scattered", in Marina mist, and added some embellishments.  I also scalloped the edge of the card.  Whew!  Got that all out...Let's go see if Helen's card is simpler, but even more beautiful!  I hope you are having fun, and thanks for visiting.  Come back next time.  Carol Smith
