I really ought not to be playing on here as I have loads to do before I go to get my hair cut in an hour's time ............. and Boy! does is need it!!!! However, on Sunday I went to the Stampmagic show at Doncaster Dome and had a fab time with my Craft Stamping Quartet buddies Judith and Jo. We do always miss Elaine though but the distance for her makes these shows impossible. We were sorry that a few old favourite exhibitors weren't there this time but ....................... the advantage was that it made room for one fabulous new company called IndigoBlu who are only just a few miles from me. My friends had introduced me to their website a couple of weeks ago so I was really pleased when I found they were going to be showing their gorgeous range of stamps and other goodies. I have to confess that the visit to their stand (I went back 3 times, lol) was not good for my debit card and couldn't wait to have a play with some of my purchases. This is my first make with IndigoBlu stamps and alterables and I know there'll be many more.
I used Eco Green acrylic paints, stamped with Archival Sepia ink, added a bit of clear Crackle Paint here and there before rubbing in a little Distress Ink. The little roses were from a very cheap headband bought from a wellknown High Street store and the wired paper string came from a package I received and the metal rose I bought on my Ally Pally visit. I love that string stuff and have used it all now so must do a search to see if I can buy it anywhere. If anyone has seen it for sale I'd appreciate a tip off, lol!
Have a lovely day everyone and I hope the sun is shining on you. It's glorious here!
