Bloomin Great

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I have had a good productive day today. First thing this morning after breakfast hubby and I went for a nice long walk around the canal, came home and had a coffee and then into the craft room.

Managed to get quite a bit done and sharing with you tonight my card for the IndigoBlu challenge.


Step by Step

1. A5 Landscape white card.
2. Cut a piece of white stamping card and distressed with Crushed Olive DI, the taking the 2 sized leaf stamps from IndigoBlu "Bloomin Great" stamp set stamped the whole page using Ground Espresso DI, then mat and layered onto the base card.
3. Stamped the florals with Squeezed Lemonade DI then embossed with WOW clear embossing powder.
I cut out and then using my water brush coloured with Ripe Persimmon DI.
4. Stamped the IndigoBlu dragonfly Dinkie with Ground Espresso DI embossed with clear embossing powder cut out then coloured with Picked Raspberry DI.
5. Finally I stamped the sentiment using Ripe Persimmon DI embossed then inked the edges with DI Crushed Olive.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

IndigoBlu - Spring is in the Air
Aud Sentiments #155 - AG plus Sentiment
Craft Rocket Challenges #15 - Flower Powder
