Hello all and thanks for dropping in, possibly even for the second time....
If you are interested my first project today can be found HERE
This project, - a card and matching tag, was created for the Mixed Media Monthly challenge blog where our theme is "texture".
What's more, Indigo Blu, are our incredibly generous sponsors this month!
And just look at what you could win if you play!!!
Well, on to my project, - here it is.
I'll give you a quick explanation and some step by step photos of how I put this together.
I took a 6 x 6 piece of card and did a gelli print using three colours from the Indigo Blu paint range, Frosty Sky, Hot Cocoa and Townhouse Teal. I also added a tiny bit of gold paint from my stash.
When the paint had dried a gave it a few sprays of Ground Espresso and did some background stamping, both with the teal paint and Ground Espresso Distress ink, using two of Indigo Blu's background stamps, Honey comb and Crackle Glaze. I also added some stencilling using one of their new stencils, Laurel Leaves and some Wendy Vecchi Gold embossing paste.
Next I took one of their Christmas stamps, the Tear Drop Bauble and used it with Flitterglu and Mega flakes on a Teal painted piece of card and a black piece of card.
After they had been stamped and gilded I fussy cut them to use as embellishments for my card.
I also added mega flakes around the edges of my card.
To add more interest to the background I also stamped the large text stamp from the Enjoy Life set, straight on the the background with Flitter Glu and then used the flakes again for that lovely shimmer.
The tag, a size #8 Manila Ranger tag, was done in a very similar way. Again, I did a gelli print and some stencilling and background stamping for the background.
out all the details. There is of course also some fantastic inspiration from my teamies.
Thanks for visiting like always and have a great creative month!!
