The blue one

Here's a close-up of the blue card so you can see it properly. It does just fit in the tin, after all, but the envelope is a bit of a squeeze. Bad planning, eh?

I coloured the image using ink pads and blender pens - if you squeeze a closed ink pad it creates a pool of ink in the lid which you can use with blender pens or a paintbrush. It's important not to use a blender pen or paint brush directly on the ink pad itself.

Stamps: Cheers to You (p35), Circle of Friendship (p62).
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Whisper White.
Paper: Designer Series Paper - Cutie Pie (p73).
Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron, Bashful Blue.
Accessories: 1" circle punch (p80), 1/2" circle punch (p80), Taffeta ribbon - Bashful Blue (p86).
