Red, white and Black ...but still Indigo Blu!

I can't quite believe that a month has gone by since the last Indigo Blu Challenge.
I did enjoy the challenge and working in Blues!

This month it is words and phrases that are the focus so I had a look at the stamps I have and found a stamp I hadn't used yet in my box! Well I just had to make use of it for the main image on my card! It is the Ella Bella stamp

I needed a background stamp too and chose the bubbles one. For my words and phrases I chose the new plate of saying B.F.F.

I had an idea in my head and started off by making th ebackground by stamping the bubbles in flitter glu onto black card. I then used winter dawn flakes over this to create the background.

I also stamped in  Cranberry adirondack ink onto the ribbon so it could dry off before making a bow.

I stamped the main image and the two phrases in cranberry. Then I was ready to assemble the card.

I used an 8x8 card blank and laid all the pieces on to chack the design. Once happy with it all I stuck it all down and here is the finished result.
I am quite pleased with the result and hope you like it too! Please let me know below what you think.
Thanks for dropping by

Oh I have been a naughty blogger....

....and not been blogging much! I have just been rather busy and then been ill!

Well Its all rainy and awful here and I am still full of this terrible cold/flu!
Just had my first Lemsip of the day and thought that I would share a card I made for a friend who is not well at the moment!

I used the indigo blu clockworks set and a kaisercraft background stamp and masks to do this one. I also used the indigo blu crackle background stamp.

The sentiment I made on the PC as I couldn't find one I liked in my small selection of stamps!!! Ahem! Slight exageration there!

I know he liked it!

Oh well short and sweet but I need to sleep now!

Happy Crafting and stay warm and dry everyone

Anything Goes

Well The 1st March is now here and today we have seen the Clarity Stamp Blog Challenge go live.

Here is my DT card I made for it.
I wanted to use my new humming bird Stamps so I thought about how I could make it a bit different!

I got a piece of black card and stamped the large and small humming bird and some of the flowers large and small in versamark.

I then used mica powders in a variety of colours and brushed these over.

Once I had got this topper I needed to think about the background. I matted and layered it on to purple and jade green card.

The base card which is white i decided to use the humming bird to create a backing paper.

I used my splodgemat to create an ink pad and put 4 colours of distress inks on to the mat. I then stamped the humming bird into this ink and then created a background of humming birds.
I also used a blending tool and ink off the splodgemat through sequin waste to add to the  background
Once I had got my card and topper I assembled it and added a piece of narrow ribbon and some clear dewdrops to the corners of the topper and on the ribbon.
I was pretty pleased with the final card. And I hope you like it too.
Let's see you have a go at the challenge and remember......
......Anything Goes!!!!
