Change



Wow this is a color that I don't use very often BLUE.. I do prefer dark blue rather than light. I am not sure why this is cuz I am happy every time I look outside and the sky is a nice clear blue..Anyway !! Over at Crazy for Challenges the challenge is to paper pierce. This is such a simple technique that really adds alot.!! I have used a paper piercing template . I pierced on white and then put on Dark blue to make it stand out. Thanks for joining me today...Monique

Beautiful !!! There's some patience there !! I am interested in piercing and that will probably be my next tool I purchase.

You know, you make the comment of not using blue often. There are all kinds of blues such as baby blue, sky blue medium blue, etc...but one of the hardest colors to find in solid is "navy" or "dark" blue... I hoarded up on a navy that I had found at HL and even though I don't use it much I have needed a piece a time or two. I guess in reality, you don't see many folks having a use for it.
