We Create The Blues Blog Hop

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019! This year we will be focusing on color and we are starting off with the blues. I hope you get some color inspiration from us.
For my card I decided to share some "no line" stamping. You start off by stamping in a lighter color and then coloring to the edges to make it appear that there is no outline to the stamp. It eliminates the bold outlined look. The card above has the glitter on it but as you can see it looks just okay. This took me about four tries and that included searching the internet for what blue hummingbirds look like. I have some regulars in the backyard over the summer but they are so fast it's hard to know for sure.

After adding the Wink of Stella excessively it really came to life and looks fantastic. I also carefully lined the word "better".  The silver layer is not in the catalog but you could use the Foil Sheets or Glimmer Paper instead.
