IndigoBlu Caitlin

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I had a lovely chilled relaxed day in the garden yesterday and hoping to do the same today.
Tomorrow is going to be a busy day as got my packing to do for Wednesday as I fly off to see my friend Deb in America!

Rick will be at home looking after the fur babies and having a rest!

IndigoBlu are celebrating 5 years! WOW where has the time gone!

To celebrate I am sharing a card using the beautiful IndigoBlu Caitlin stamp.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square card.
2. First layer is brown embossed card.
3. The next layer is white card which I distressed with DI squeezed lemonade, wild honey and spiced marmalade, I then used picked raspberry by dabbing my circle blending tool into the ink and dabbing in circles onto the background, then using a flower stamp by IndigoBlu to create the background.
4. I stamped Caitlin onto stamping card with Memento, coloured image with Copics then cut out with SB Labels 47. I then matted and layered onto card which I had in my stash from my shaving foam and inks technique.
5. Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Sepia, clear embossed, cut out with Labels 47 distressed with squeezed lemonade, distressed the edges with spiced marmalade and adhered to card.
6. To finish off I added gold gems to the corners.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Eclectic Ellapu - Anything Goes
