I used a Stampsmith image: Billie Holiday single available at the Stampsmith Shop. I don't know anyone who sings the "Blues" better than Billie. That's why I chose her image for this card. I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip ink (Stampin' Up) on glossy white CS. The image was cut with a Spellbinders die. I layered with blue and brown papers all from Basic Grey (some papers in a blog candy from the lovely Laurel - thank you!). The card base is Chocolate Chip CS (SU). I wrapped a piece of blue tulle around the card and tied on a scrap of cotton fabric from my stash. I added a little safety pin (SU) and some gem stickers. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. Here are some detail photos.
Isn't this a fabulous image!! I just love the Stampsmith stamps. I hope you feel inspired by my card and will take the Color Challenge. Have fun!!
