Deep blue sea

My card has a seaside flavour today being all things blue. This ties in rather nicely as the new

is Favourite single colour (and don't forget to tell us why)

My favourite single colouring colour is blue...and as it's not a colour I wear I really can't explain why... other than it being associated with summer skies and blue seas and the fact that I replace more blue Promarkers than any other colour!!

I used a Digistamp Boutique image and Pink Petticoat paper for this card, the blue Promarkers and DI pads had another outing and it looks like tea green is on it's way out...again!!

Great card Sarah, love the image and how you've created your sea and sky! Love the paper too! Can't really say which my favourite pen colour is, guess it's bluesl like you and also Browns but that's cause I find then easiest to blend! Jx

I don't think anything will ever sway me from my love of pink but I do like blue too, in fact it would be my fave combo with pink! Blue certainly does feel like a Summer colour though and your seaside card is fabulous; love the fish DP!

Big hugs, Kat xx
