February - Colour

Hello Everyone, Myrna here! This month I am in charge of selecting all the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenges. For our Colour challenge I chose Shades of Blue. Nothing says cold like the blues. I love monochrome cards and challenge you to try to make a card that focuses on using blue tones. Use as many or few as you want. You can use inks, watercolours, markers, pencils, colour stock etc. to show blue.
