Blue


You know sometimes wen you just want to try something different. Well I have never coloured blue hair before but these Simply Sassy girls from Sugar Nellie look great with coloured hair so I gave it a go. I decided to stick with the blue and used Papermania capsule papers. The flowers were made with a MS hydrangea punch, Woodware punched leaves and pearls from The Hobby House. I've used DI Broken China on all the edges. I found the stamped sentiment in my sentiment file, think it's Crafter's Companion.
