LIM Shades of Blue


Think this is a first for me - getting my LIM challenge card 
done on the first day! 
This week the theme is Shades of Blue
This idea popped into my head


I stamped the monkey image & coloured it using my Copics 
in of course shades of blue :-)


I stamped out the sentiment, again in blue & mounted it onto blue bazil.


Then came my problem! I can't print out from this computer :-( & I needed the other sentiment for the card to 'make sense' so I couldn't do the clever printing out or onto the card like Chrissie & Mandi do.
I had to go freehand!! so had a go at replicating the font freehand ...

One day soon I hope my son will get this computer onto the network so that I can print out - I find it really hampers you at times not being able to!

Mandi said...

You did a super job Rachel
Your monkey is super cute
On the pronter note I do kind of give card a little push as the machine starts the printing process, otherwise it refuses to guide it through. Some printers just wont play at all though eh!
Thank you so much
