Sunday Stamper Challenge

The Sunday Stamper challenge this week is to use the colour BLUE.  It is so hot today I feel drained and think the heat has taken away my mojo once again.  I found it really difficult to get started with this theme.  I decided to make a simple card as my energy levels were running low. 
I have used a Penny Black stamp, an Iris.  I stamped the Iris onto a magazine page and clear embossed and then applied DI ink tumbled glass over the top with highlights of peeled paint.  Once happy with the depth of colour I removed the ink from the Iris.
I have added pearl embellishments and the IRIS text to complete.  If you would like to see some great artwork for this challenge why not pop over to Hels' blog.  Have a great Sunday, Tracy x x
