I am blue...

Hey Fluffers :)

What day is it today? Oh yes. Wednesday. Actually, it's a two post Wednesday. But first things first.


I decided recently I don't play with blue very much. In fact, I decided there are quite a few colours I don't do much with and I challenged myself to use them more. Brilliant in theory. But, when it comes to it, I concentrate so hard on trying to use the colour I don't colour much with, the rest of the card seems to suffer and I end up disappointed with the end result. Colouring, ok. Card, could be better.


Anyway, when I saw the new Chilli Pepper as Raggedy Andy Digi from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, blue is the colour that sprang to mind. So, I set about finding some blue stuff to put him with. At which point I realised why I don't play with blue so much. Not much in the way of stash... must rectify.

Don't forget, the current Challenge over at the Little Miss Muffet Blog is Neapolitan. Too early to talk about ice cream, if you ask me! Ok to eat it though! ;)

I'll be back later with some Oddness. Ooh and you might wanna stalk the Little Miss Muffet Blog tomorrow. That's all...

I too am 'blue challenged', but you did a great job with it here.
Love your colouring - I'm never brave enough to try shading on faces - in case I muck the whole thing up, but you've encouraged me to give it a try.
