Recently I was lucky enough to win the IndigoBlu challenge - I was so pleased and even more pleased when I realised that part of the prize is to be Guest Designer for the new challenge which starts today! The challenge is to use a sketch, something I have never done before. You can join in the challenge and see the fab DT makes here. Its great fun! I missed the last one unfortunately, I will try not to do that again! You can win a fab prize of a choice of IndigoBlu stamps - the ones I chose are gorgeous and the quality is always awesome!
I used the amazingly fabulous IndigoBlu Blazing Poppies stamp but decided not to go with red. The backgrounds are achieved using Milled Lavender, Scattered Straw and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks, chicken wire sequin waste as a mask along with the Best Wishes and corner stamp from IndigoBlu Nottingham Lace. The swirl in the top left is from a mixed sheet of IndigoBlu stamps I bought at a show. The main image is painted with the same Distress Inks except for the leaves where I used a Promarker. The two larger butterflies are die cuts, the centres of the flowers are sequins with a little seed bead added. I coloured the ribbon with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and water and added a dazzler to the centre which I coloured with a coordinating Promarker. The embossing on the black card is done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. To add a bit of sparkle, the flowers and butterflies are painted with clear Wink of Stella.
Its a bit scary having my card on the IndigoBlu blog with the DT samples as theirs are always so awesome and professional! Its a real honour though - Thank you so much IndigoBlu!
Thank you so much to you too for visiting me! I appreciate it so much and love it when you leave me a comment. Have a lovely Sunday and take care! Christine xxx
