Smeared Ink Weekly Challenge Time!

Hi All!!  Lots of posts going on this week on Paper Canteen!  One of which is my last post as a guest designer for Smeared Ink.  Thank you ladies for having me!  It's a true pleasure to create with such lovely and talented artists!

This week's challenge is called Black and Blue.  Here's my interpretation using one of the gorgeous French Fairies images.
I printed my image and colored it with my Copics.  I then cut it out using my Small Oval Nestabilities.  My card measures 4"x4".  I knew I wanted to go shabby and scrappy so I pulled out lots of blue, white and pearl elements.  I used some Ouchless Cardboard which I distressed with my Black Acrylic Ranger Paint Dabber before zig zag stitching the edges.  I then began to layer with a self-adhesive felt snowflake, some chipboard and acrylic accents, a vintage button and baker's twine, Tim Holtz decorative tape, pearls, floral pins and finally my very favorite embellishment right now, resin flowers.  Swoon!!
I also completed the interior of my card using some torn scraps and stamps from MFT.

I hope you have enjoyed my Black and Blue creation today!!  Please come on by the Smeared Ink Challenge blog and play along!
