Mixed Media Monday "Purples and Blues"


The theme at MMM is Purples and Blues. The example by Rosie is just stunnings. Blues and purples always seem to evoke a kind of mystical feel. I decided to stick with Blues rather than purples, mainly because I have no decent purple colour at the moment. I've given my contribution the title "Feeling Blue"

  26. What a beautiful picture - very soft and other-worldly. You may have left out the purples but you didn't include pink!! That is what I did when I confused one challenge with another.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
