Confession: I adore navy blue.
It’s my favorite neutral and my favorite blue. Navy seems more subtle than black, more moody than gray, and more classic than turquoise. Night of Navy was one of the first full-size Stampin’ Up! ink pads I ordered way back in the day. And I store it right alongside my most-used neutral inks: black, brown, and gray.
So playing along with The Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger, I’m Craving Navy, was almost a given.
I stamped the stripes and triangle borders with Distress ink and water to make them look more like the watercolor stripes that are so hip right now. And because I really liked the black and white photo gallery in the inspiration image, they’re topped with another faux Instagram photo in Lil’ Inker Designs’ Instant Camera die cut, this time of my baby girl (who happens to have a wardrobe full of navy blue). A navy button tied with twine and a sweet thank you sentiment to finish it off. I just want to kiss that little button nose every time I see it, even on the card.
What’s your favorite neutral?
