Blue is the colour....

November is here and so a new challenge at Country View Crafts with the theme of blue - chosen my Doreen. As I write this I am now humming the tune, 'blue is the colour, football is the game....' you might need to be a football fan and in the UK to understand that! I am more of a Reds girl myself though. Less of the rambling and on with the craft....

Blueprint sketch - what a fab new distress ink colour - used here with a combination of other blue DI's.  I cut an oval from the centre of my square and added some patterned cardstock behind (highlighted with a bit more blue). 
I took some little stars and gave a coat of gesso before dabbing various blue distress paints on (drying in between layers).
A whole month to play along with our Blue theme at CVC - and I will be back later in the month with another blue project that may be a little more seasonal!
'Till next time
