Just Add Blue….Just Because!

17/10/2010

This week’s challenge on Just Add Ink is to Just Add Blue – not just because it’s a fabulous colour (my favourite, even!), but because it’s Anxiety and Depression Awareness month. Anxiety and depression are hugely common in today’s high-pressure, ‘must-achieve’ world – so it’s good to be aware and help remove the stigma associated with them.

I love the new blue, Marina Mist – it’s totally dreamy! When I saw this challenge, and the extra ‘challenge’ attached to it, I knew what I was going to make and who for. So here it is:

The optional extra to this week’s ‘challenge’ was to send this to someone you care about – just because! So this will go in the post tomorrow morning, and wing it’s way to someone special who needs a little lift right now.  Here’s a peek at the inside, before I write in it!

Stampsets: Word Play, Silhouette Sentiments

Cardstock: Marina Mist, Whisper White

Ink: Marina Mist

Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, Marina Mist 5/8 ” Satin Ribbon, Neutrals Designer Button (Whisper White), Linen Thread

    Jaw dropping! The marina Mist is beautiful against the WWhite. I like that you carried over a small element to the inside too. The satin ribbon is to die for 🙂 Beautiful Bron – well done you!
