Caardvarks - Blue or Celestial

I am quite disappointed with this picture. The light is poor & the papers look more purple than blue. I tried to tweak it a bit but the contrast went too dark. This is my entry for the latest Caardvark theme, Blue. I painted a sheet of text with gesso & stamped the Crafty Individuals image onto vellum. Once both were dry I roughly tore the text paper & fixed the image with blue eyelets. The corner stamp is Design Objectives.
I need to get some very dark blue ink other than my distress ink as I love blue. Papers are HOTP.
