Autumn Wildlife - Guest Designer spot for Indigoblu challenge reminder

Thank you to the DT for selecting my bright and beautiful card in the Top 3. It means so much to receive such wonderful comments. I've been crafting for over 10 years now and my style has changed over the years. It was Jenny Marples who inspired me to create my blog although its a bit hit and miss as to when I add posts and I'm still learning. I particularly love stamping and all things IB!

Indigoblu Challenge Blog - September challenge reminder autumn

This is my take on the Autumn Wildlife theme.

I started with the background and painted Banana Custard, Burning Bonfire, Lime Marmalade, Goldfinger, White Gesso and Luscious Gold.


and stamped the large butterfly in Spiced Chai.

The leaves were also stamped with the paints and cut out. I stamped the smaller butterflies with Spiced Chai, painted and cut out but also left one on the white background.

The sentiment was stamped onto the background and a white piece of card. The word Perfect was cut out and added behind the wooden frame, same with the butterfly on white card. The background was matt and layered onto brown card and a white card blank.

Close ups below highlight the detail.

Thanks for popping by and feel free to leave a comment.

Indigoblu Stylised Flowers

Evening All,

Created this card using the Indigoblu Stylised Flowers.

The background is randomly painted with all colours with a wash of white gesso over to knock it back slightly. The Stylised flowers are stamped in Marshmallow, Vibrant Violet and Black.

The Rugged Edge stamp in Black framed the flowers. This was matt and layered onto a white card which was painted with the marshmallow and luscious pink.

The Luscious pink was mixed with Slap it on and coated a small white piece of card and this was die cut with the HB sentiment. This was also cut out of black card to create a shadow to the pink HB.
