A blue page for DT Inkido 'Hello Sunshine'

Hi, I hope you enjoyed looking at my gorgeous peonies in yesterdays post.
It's such a shame they don't last forever....

First a little reminder that today is the last day that the Blogger following gadget will be active.
I decided to follow the example many of my friends and join Bloglovin.

If you are fast today you can import all the blogs you are following with Blogger to Bloglovin'.
I  imported each and every one of my fave blogs with not much more than a click of a button. Apparently tomorrow it'll be too late.

I hate change and I don't like this either.
I have added a Bloglovin gadget like this one to my sidebar

and by clicking the sidebar one you will be able to stay a follower of this blog.

Now I'd like to share my latest page made for my Sunday's post at Inkido
I have done so many pinkish romantic layouts lately that I felt like making a different kind today. Conveniently I had a couple of photos laying on my desk from when my youngest sister and her family was visiting here. So I did a boy page,...( still with flowers mind you ;-) )

I cut out the word Sunshine in my title with the Sihouette Cameo and placed a dark and a light version on top of eachother, but slightly off, to create a shadow effect.

 And here are some shots of the details:

I decided I wanted to try a different combo. Normally I might still have combined the blue with pink or white or something. Instead I decided to use some of those tan coloured leaves and flowers I received in my latest Inkido kit. I think they work pretty well with the boyish blue.

Those cute butterflies that I don't seem to ever get enough of, are cut from an Inkido paper.
They really have so many that are great for fussy cutting if you are into that.
The pretty rosebuds are made by Norwegian brand Papirdesign and they have the most amazing range of colours in their flowers. I love them!!

 The woodgrain in the background was done using a bought mask. 
If you still have not tried let me tell you it is so very easy and you could start trying with a mask that  you make yourself, or maybe a leftover from a chipboard sheet. 
I promise you it is great fun!!

The little chipboard decoration is from Polish Wycinanka. I like the styles they make.

Finally, there is a sprinkling of half pearls in the right hand corner. The three colors come from the same package. I think they look so pretty and add an extra dimension to the page.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I will be back in a day or two to share more pages that I prepared for assignments for the beginning of the month.
