Inspired Blue Floral


Yesterday's inspiration challenge came from F.Schumacher. I've posted a
thumbnail of the chair and upholstery fabric that I selected for the inspiration. I love blue. (and greens and browns lol). As I was working on this card I decided to use the cracked glass technique since I hadn't for quite a while. The coluzzle was used to make the circles, but I had to cut the Night of Navy circle by hand because I wanted narrower matting.

This sketch is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge.

Can't decide if I want to watch movies, nap, or stamp this afternoon. I broke my glasses this morning though, so don't know how enjoyable tv viewing will be for too long. It's gloomy and rainy....napping sounds good.....but I want to stamp. Decisions, decisions. LOL

Thanks for stopping by....Hope you're having a wonderful weekend wherever you are! - Joan
