Indigoblu Challenge 16 – Monochromatic

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge 1

Hi there everyone!

I have some rather exciting news to share with you all this morning!

I am really excited to announce that I am a sparkly brand new Design Team member of the Indigoblu Challenge Blog!!

I am really looking forward to work along with the other girls on the team and to be able to work with the fabulous Indigoblu products, and  produce samples for the challenges each month!

The theme this month is Monochromatic and I chose a clean and simple card design using various hues of green.. incorporating a couple of “on trend”  styles including watercolouring and sequins and links to the Indigoblu products will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Indigoblu May 2014 Challenge

I used the Big Butterfly Stamp, which I absolutely LOVE!,  inked up with versamark,  embossed with ultra fine white embossing powder, then watercoloured with various different hues of green water based inks,  the card panel has scattered ink spots and a sprinkling of sequins to finish it off.

The sentiment is from the More than words A6 stamp set, I stamped out one of the sentiments, then trimmed out the words “Life is too short” and mounted this just under the butterfly.   There are a lot of great sentiments and sayings in this plate, and I have some great ideas for the others 🙂

I look forward to seeing you all over at the Indigoblu challenge blog and look forward to seeing all your submissions to the challenge 🙂

As always, thanks so much for popping round.

Blushing Roses

Hi everyone..

As most of you that visit my blog may already know, I signed up for the Online Card Classes – Watercolor for card makers course, I have to say it has been the best one yet, providing heaps of hints, tips and fabulous video tutorials.. I am at the cow’s tail, as usual, and working through day 3 and 4, which feature stamping with watercolours..

In the card I made today, I picked a Rose Blush stamp by Indigoblu and coloured the surface of the stamp with various shades of distress markers, I used Barn Door, Picked Raspberry, festive Berries, spun sugar, mowed lawn, evergreen bough and iced spruce, spritzed the stamp with water, then stamped it direct onto some Tim Holtz Watercolour cardstock..

watercolour stamping #2

Once It was stamped onto the cardstock, I took a Koi water brush and just blended out the lines of the stamp to give a watercoloured finish.. I do like how this turned out, I chopped it down, edged it in wild honey, and matted it onto some marshmallow cardstock..

watercolour stamping #3

then I mounted the finished panel onto a folded piece of Bazill marshmallow cardstock measuring 5″ x 5″ when scored.

Stamping with watercolours

Looking forward to working through Day 5 and 6, I will hopefully share these with you all tomorrow
