Am I Blue? - RS15 & CQC141

This pretty little blue number is for Retro Sketches 15 & Colour Q 141

 I've actually had this main panel flower laying around my desk for quite a while now.  I made it to try out the layered marker techniqe.  After I was done coloring this little gem, I accidentaly dropped my polka dot backround stamp on it, so I just went with it and added more dots.  I hated to scrap this piece after going to all the trouble of coloring the image.  The color palette from the Colour Q was the perfect match for this image, so I went with it. I really had to search to find a piece of Brocade Blue....I think this was my very last piece.  It's such a pleasent color, isn't it?  I loved this sketch from Retro Sketches this week, but flipped it on it's side to accomodate my image. 
Here's a list of supplies I used......
Stamps: Simply Soft, Polkadot & Paisley, On Your Birthday, Polkadot backround
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, White gel pen, Stazon Black
Accessories: Subltes button, Subtles brads, lime rik-rak, top note die, navy satin ribbon, square lattice EF
Thanks for taking a peek!
