Inky Friends Carnival of Color: Blueberry Bushel



https://myinkyfriends.blogspot.com/2018/05/carnival-of-color-my-inky-friends-blog.html

Now that we have all had a chance to drool over the new catalog for a while, it is time to settle in to some creativity. And what better way than to play with all of the new colors!! So My Inky Friends and I are pulling out all the stops and getting inky 😎

If you are following along in order, you just arrived from Kris Kilkenny's blog featuring Blackberry Bliss!

The color I chose to play with is Blueberry Bushel. It is such a nice royal blue, and it plays so well with so many other colors. It is no secret that I love blue. My car is about the same color as Blueberry Bushel.

The blues in this card are Blueberry Bushel, Pool Party, and Balmy Blue. I sponged the colors on the watercolor paper, then spritzed with Pearlized water. The sea vegetation is stamped in Blueberry Bushel and Pool Party.

The mermaid tail is watercolored in Pool Party, then added dabs of Blueberry Bushel. Her hair is done in an ombre also.

Here is a close up of the card. To make up for the fact that I could not find the second card I made. Sigh. Some days!

And the inside is pretty simple.


Well, that's all I have for you! It is time to go see what Mickey Roberts has in store for us. I can't wait!

I love her ombre hair! I wouldn't have thought to make blue hair, but if I were a mermaid I would love to have my hair match my tail. She's beautiful! All of these blues are just magical together. I bet it was so relaxing to mix all of these colors and spritz away. Wonderful card!

I just love how you blended the three blues together, Tanya! A perfect combination for the water (and the ombré hair)!

WOW I love her hair 😍 I have a mermaid tattoo (huge) on my back. Your card is stunning. Love how you did the water background and tail. The silver bling just takes it to a whole another level. Love it 😍

Holy moly, I love the background on this! It’s so cool and watery feeling, I can almost feel it. My fave color is blue, too, so I was thrilled when I saw Blueberry Bushel!
