Less is More Week 22 Shades of Blue

The theme this week at Less is More is Shades of blue. 
Running a bit late this week as we are just back from  5 days in sunny Devon staying with friends overlooking Brixham harbour. Fantastic views and definitely shades of blue!
Catching up on my blog I found a digi stamp from Beyond the Fringe and immediately thought of Venice and that's where I went! Not literally, unfortunately, as it's my most favourite place, but theme wise!
I downloaded a drawing of the Venetian waterfront and coloured it blue. I printed out the digi stamp and overstamped with swirls and butterflies.I added some glitter to the mask and along the water. The sentiment was stamped with brilliance.
Hope it fits the brief:)
