Some blue here and some blue there

My two cards today show off some great shades of blue.
 First of all, I used the Seize the Sketch and created this card. 
 I just received some neat, new stencils from Clearsnap and I knew this one with small hexagons would work just right with the sketch.  I used a blending sponge and two colors of Clearsnap inks, only adding color to some of the hexagons.  I also gave the finished card front a spritz of some Clearsnap spray ink.  The stamps stamped with black ink are from Paper Smooches, the stamp inked with the soft blue is a stamp from Close to My Heart.
 Here is the Seize the Sketch.
 Next up I wanted to play along with the 10 minute Craft Dash.  This challenge uses three neat colors together.  I didn't actually time my project down to the minutes and seconds but since I basically only needed to repeatedly stamp this great burst stamp from Hero Arts, this really was a fast and easy card.
 The three colors of ink are done with some Clearsnap inks and I added some additional interest with matching Liquid Pearls.
Here is the 10 minute Craft Dash.
