Lunagirl Blog Challenge: LADY BLUE

The theme for my new Lunagirl blog challenge starting today is LADY BLUE.

In choosing this theme I was originally inspired by the Bluet blue-tinted postcards that were popular in the early 1920s.  I have quite a few in my collection, and sometimes tint other photo postcards to resemble them!

So that is one style of Lady Blue -- vintage blue-tinted postcards.  But "Lady Blue" could also be a lady dressed in blue, or a lady in a blue mood. You'll see that I have collage sheets that suit either of those interpretations...Then there are blue fairies, and blue angels, and blue birds, and ladies who sing the blues...   Wander wherever your imagination takes you inspired by the theme!

The Design Team will be sharing their visions of Lady Blue to get your creative juices flowing (see some of them below). 

This challenge (#12) will end at 11:55 AM on October 20.

The winner will be selected randomly to win two free Lunagirl digital collage sheets of your choice!

Any craft or medium is OK,
No more than 3 entries from one person in each challenge, 
Vintage style is encouraged but not required, and
Please link to my blog and on your site if you have one.

Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement!  Most important is have fun, get creative, enjoy vintage. 

Here is an assortment of collage sheets that suit the Lady Blue theme, including some backgrounds.  (The lady I used for the challenge badge above is from Blue.)

About Vicki's pretty lady blue tag:

"Since Lunagirl is sponsoring the Tag challenge on my blog.  I have created a tag with the theme "Lady Blue"  I took two images from one of the collage sheets and used one of her blue backgrounds.  I made part of the background a little darker by doing a repeat printing of  a strip of the background.    I think the diecut is from Memory Box.  It is one a friend gave me to show what she had ordered recently."

Don't forget to visit The Cheerful Stamppad this week and enter Vicki's "TAG" blog challenge as well!
