I am just loving working with blue

At first when I saw this challenge at Moxi fab I had no idea what I was going to do, the whole idea of working with mainly blue was quite daunting, but I have to say my ideas are on a roll with this beautiful colour and this is the second I am doing this week working with blue.

For this card I created a water scene by printing a light blue square and cutting out swirl shapes from acetate and dark blue card stock, I overlapped the pieces and stuck them down on the light blue square to create  the affect of water, its hard to see the acetate in the photo but if you look hard enough you'll find it. I then printed a square on white carstock cut out the middle square to create a window and attached the white card stock to the first square using self adhesive dimensional foam. I added the chipboard fish that I stamped light blue to the card. The tiny blue heart has been punched out and added to the card with blue ribbon, this is meant to be bait. The last thing that I did was add the sentiment which is a rub-on.

I wasn't going to make a card today but the idea was running through my head the whole day and so had to make this card, I am sure many of you can relate.

The challenges I have included-
