Wee Christmas Birdies

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend, Just a quickie post from me today with a quick share on what I got up to yesterday whilst I was through at the Cardwell Garden Centre in Gourock demonstrating for Indigoblu!

Check out these cute little glass birdie tree decorations, Β I applied a layer of flitterglu direct to the glass, waited for the glu to go clear/translucent then smothered them in gorgeous Megaflake.. I LOVE them so much, and so did the customers, because they sold out completely πŸ™‚ Β  a huge thank you to Mairi and Faye who gave me these little beauties to play with.

Needless to say I will now be scouring the internet to try and find these so that I can decorate and put some on my tree πŸ™‚

p.s. the birds are (L) Chocolate Box (R) Royal Peacock

Glass Birds

I have been crafting like a mad woman today… you catch up with what I have been making over on the Indigoblu Blog this Tuesday 18th November.

I also have a step by step tutorial this week on the Indigoblu blog, which will be a video, so you won’t want to miss that one… I have had a lot of requests for this πŸ˜‰

Oki doki.. I’m off, what was initially going to be a quickie post turned into a bit of a rambling lol…

As always thank you so much for your support

See you next week!

Hi Everyone!

It is time for another new challenge over on at the Indigoblu Challenge Blog, this month the theme is a sketch. Β  Β  I had so much fun creating this 7″ x 7″ megaflaked card Β πŸ™‚

My card this month is fairly easy to make and comes together quite quickly, it uses two stamps, a sentiment stamp and also the lollipop tree stamp, along with some of the gorgeous Indigoblu Megaflakes in Morris Dance and Chariot of Fire.

Gilding Flakes and Sea Glass

Hi Everyone…

A thought popped into my head tonight……..!

I wonder if I can apply Megaflakes to seaglass?

One way to find out….. and off to my shed I trot!

I have to say…I loved the effect πŸ™‚

I picked a nice piece of light aqua glass and applied some around the edges, then took the snowflake lace stamp from Indigoblu and stamped over top and applied more winter dawn flakes.. it’s so pretty ❀

Then I picked clear and green seaglass and applied the Morris dance megaflake… it’s really pretty too πŸ™‚
