Mixed Media Card in Blues

Over at Mixed Media Card Challenge it is the challenge of blue, with an optional element of a vase.
And so this card was created......on one of those days where you sit and stare at your stash.......waiting......and waiting........and waiting for your Mojo to decide.......
I finally grabbed a piece of light blue, glossy CS and sprayed some blue ink on it, then some alcohol..........just enough to kick start my Mojo........*grin*.  Once it was dry I stamped a flower and fussy cut it out.........okaaaaayyyyyy....now what??  Well, I know I would never be able to find that vase stamp, that I know I have had for years......so I grabbed my TH Apothecary Bottles die and a scrap of vellum........waaaah LAAAA!   I used one a scrap of the glossy CS, that was inked, to make the water in my vase.  What happened next was sheer delight.......the glue activated the inks and they created this:

I chose an embossed white background over a gingham check to mount the vase and flower, with a touch of the check around the neck of my vase.  I used some blue chalk, and my finger to highlight some of the embossing around the edge.  A navy blue "hello" finished off the card...............my Mojo and are now friends again.....*grin*

There is still plenty of time to join this challenge.
HERE is the challenge

Thanks for stopping by, please let me know you were here.
