Less is More 22 - Shades of Blue.

Good morning everyone. Friday at last and I can't believe this is my 4th post in 5 days! I really wanted to make a card for the Less is More challenge which is shades of blue this week.

I can say that this is a simple card but I won't pretend it was quick lol! First of all I had to find the right shade of blue and it was not the Stazon one. Without much hope I tried a Vivid ink pad called Inky Blue and it was perfect. Unfortunately I can't say the same for my stamping. I used this image for a couple of cards last year and I find it quite tricky to get a nice clear image. Probably it's just me but I would get it all ok except maybe one or two of the little corner stars or maybe some of the little lines round the outside. One time the head of the first camel was a bit iffy. Eventually I managed to get a couple of decent images. I can see this one is not perfect but there's a limit to the number of times you can mess up without wanting to bin a stamp lol!

I used :-
Image :- Hero Arts - Peace on Earth.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.

Mmmm not a lot to it is there? My second simple Christmas card this week. I love this stamp, just wish I was better at using it. I don't think it fits any other challenges...unless you know otherwise!

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.
