Glowing Colours and Tiny Wings

Indigoblu Challenge August 2016
'All Things Bright and Beautiful'
Glowing Colours and Tiny Wings!



For the card I used a combination of Indigoblu stamps - Ledger Background (blots only), Rococo (sentiment), Nature 1 (grasses and butterfly), Mr Darcy (birds and lace), Discover Your Passion (dragonfly), Poppy Heart, Blazing Poppies. 

The ink pads were all from Ranger - Archival Black and Distress - Barn Door, Fired Brick, Picked Raspberry, Aged Mahogany,  Walnut Stain, Black Soot. 



The aperture was die-cut, coloured and the background stamped. The die-cut card was stamped with the lace strip, then images on each side stamped using either side from the 'blots' edge from the Ledger stamp. (In a previous life, I cut this area of the Ledger stamp off and it has made it easier to use independently.) Butterflies, poppies and dragonfly were stamped, inked and added, along with a lacquer glaze and a little bit of bling. 


. . . and here we have 'Glowing Colours and Tiny Wings!

    1. Thank you, Rachel. It took me many attempts as the stamp set I wished to use has gone 'AWOL' and for a spell I couldn't get the original idea out of my head! ;~}

    1. Thank you, Sue. You're very kind! Although I have a box of Indigoblu stamps, my imagination took some time to come up with something to fill the brief, particularly when I've mislaid the set I'd planned to use as I mentioned above. ;~}

    1. Hi Maxine and thank you. The intended butterfly was from the 'lost' set so I had to improvise but with the blotty images perhaps it is more in keeping. ;~}
