BLUE MOOD

I didn't make this for any challenge BUT just because I felt like it ... which felt GOOD!

I was in a blue sort of mood and it went from there. The background is a scrap of blue card in such a pretty shade, and I inked the edge with chalk ink. Once again those trusty border stamps from Kelly Panacci came into play for the edging ... whatever did I DO before I got them?

All the images are from Artchix collage sheets, and the word stamp is Paper Artsy. She looks to me as if she is bursting to say something, but her mouth is firmly sealed. The butterfly symbolises what she wants to say if only she was released from conventions as binding as her corset ....

Yes I know, I do go on don't I?

Beautiful blue. I love the butterfly, and the little yellow bird on her shoulder.
