I really thought that last card looked anaemic, so I went back into my (now very messy) Craft Room for an hour and made a few more cards, amongst which were these two.
I used Versafine ink this time – my favourite for blue and white and it embosses so beautifully.  I’m much happier with these and especially, although I hate to say it, with the ‘C’ Card.  This is the reason why I bought that lovely Hero Arts set because I knew it would make lovely, quick, simple cards.

Couldn’t resist this one, simply because the theme mentions eyes :-) It’s not what I had in mind, though, so I may do another one in different colours to get the effect I really wanted.

Great blue and white combo, the 'C' card is rather stunning. I have just used my first Hero Arts stamp and found it so good.
