IndigoBlu One Day Special

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all this Wednesday morning.

I would like to share with you a couple of my DT samples for IndigoBlu's ODS over on Hochanda.
Did you watch last night's shows?
Kay is on today at 9 am, 1 and 5 pm.

The new products are fabulous, really enjoyed working on the Apron and Shopping Bag.
Check out the new products and hope you manage to watch the shows.


Rick modelling the Apron!


I wanted a subtle background and stayed with the colour theme of purple, blue and green.
I used shaving foam technique for the background on parts of the apron.
Coloured images with Metallic Acrylic paint and Luscious Powders.


I also added splats with Metallic paint.


I am really chuffed how this turned out, not too over the top!

Here is the bag


A close up of the image painted with Luscious Powders.


A couple of cards using the new stamps "Art Gives you Wings" and Art Studio


Shaving foam background and using part of the Canvas panel on the card.


On this one above I have added another piece of the panel which has been coloured with Luscious Powders.

I hope that you have enjoyed the shows and seeing my samples.

Thank you for your support and comments!
Happy Crafting!
