Blue and White with Wreath

A lovely blue and white background, like an old ceramic tile.  The crisp embossing works beautifully with the airbrushed color.  It's finished with a royal blue banner and wreath, a soft blue ribbon and sentiment, and a thin line of royal blue embroidery floss. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Paper Source royal blue and Papertrey Ink (PTI) rustic white.
  • Dies are PTI rustic wreath and cover plate: twist.  
  • Technique:  I used the stencil from this card to airbrush with Copic marker B45, then embossed with the same die. Making sure to have my edges straight, I positioned the die as best I could over the airbrushed pattern.  Even with my imperfect alignment, it looks good.   
  • Banners are notched with scissors. 
  • Embroidery floss is DMC 825.
  • Ribbon is 3/8" sheer-and-satin, colored with Copic marker B41.
  • The sentiment "thinking of you" is from PTI keep it simple: thinking of you, stamped with PTI blueberry sky (medium blue) ink cube.
