I love this shade of blue. Blue is my favourite colour, although I tend to veer more towards teals, firstly because I like the way they blend and secondly because it’s really hard to find an ink in a ‘good’ cornflower blue, which is my absolute favourite. Most inks are either too deep and invasive or too pale to blend well. Colorbox Sky Blue pigment ink is about the closest I’ve found to my favourite shade and this one is pretty close – it’s a Stampin Up ‘Baby Blue’ (I think – or is it Ballet Blue?).
On Sunday, I went on a small tour of the Williamson Tunnels, underneath Liverpool. It was fascinating, if somewhat short but I got some good photos and here’s one of them you may be able to use in your artwork. It’s taken at an angle – sorry about that – and there’s a bit of reflection because the receipts were laminated, but they’re still usable and extremely authentic :-) Just click to enlarge.
