Little Red Wagon Challenge #274 ~ Winter Blues

Good Wednesday morning (again)!  It seems like the only time I am posting is Wednesdays.  I will try to change that.

But, in the meantime, it is time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Tracy and her challenge is WINTER BLUES ~ use mostly blue on your card or project.  What a better time than Winter to use the cool colour of blue.

Lately I had made a few mostly blue cards so I decided to take this one in a different direction.  I looked up the colour teal to see if it was blue or green.  Here's the result I got:

 "Teal is a low-saturated colour, a greenish-to dark medium, similar to medium green and dark cyan.  It can be created by mixing green with blue into  white base, or deepened as need with a little bit of black or gray colour" (Wikipedia)

So, since that was pretty inconclusive and most answers were it is both, I chose to use it as teal BLUE and made my card with shades of teal.
