How Many Shades of Blue Are there?

You will find out when you visit the Squigglefly Challenge Blog!  Their new challenge is to use shades of blue and a Squigglefly digi image on a card or project.
Here's my card, using Lynne Stansbery's image.  It's called STRUT YOUR STUFF, and I can remember my daughter strutting her stuff in mommy's clothes and me taking loads of photos to scrapbook.  It was so much fun!  Of course, my mom took "movie pictures" (before video cameras) with 8 mm film (and no sound) of me, my sister and our cousins dressing up and strutting OUR stuff.  What little girl hasn't had her moments like this one?

I colored Lynne's image with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I have to say that while the quality of inking and blending is equal to Copics, the ink in the markers dries faster than spit!  I have not owned my SN markers for very long, but already there are several that need refilling!!

Anyway, I kept my card pretty Clean and Simple, with a bit of framing, some bling, a flower, and metal photo corners.  On the inside is where I put the sentiment that comes with the image.  It reads: "Strut Your Stuff", and she is totally living up to that sentiment!!

Now it's your turn to strut your crafting stuff at the Challenge Blog.  Hurry down that runway for a chance to win free digi's!!  And for more of Lynne's awesome images, click HERE.
