Indigoblu Challenge

Hey what an exciting day .. Thursday 21st Indigobu announce their new challenge 'Forever 21' and the 1st challenge is.... 'Blue' I'm off to look at my indigoblu stamps. Several attempts later this is what I came up with:

closeup of flowers

I used the Blazing Poppies stamp for my topper, originally I had  stamped and coloured with promarkers then I decided to experiment with vellum stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed in silver, I coloured from the rear with oil pastel and white spirit, I snipped into the petals and shaped them gently. I diecut  my image with a lacey edged oval and pieced another oval behind it. Two tiny butterflies were stamped and cut out from Indigoblu stamp

I made my background by stamping various flowers from the 'Live, Laugh ,Love' set using perfect medium and embossed with clear powder, masked them added bits of honeycomb stamp then brayered with various blue distress inks. Parts of  Love, Laugh, Love sentiment were stamped and diecut. I finished off with a silver raffia bow and a gem.

Inside I stamped Blazing Poppies again and the full Live Laugh Love sentiment.

Think this is going to be  design for my Mum in Law's Mother's Day card

Hope you like it now to link it to the challenge page

Bye for now x Annie
