Hello everyone and thanks for dropping by.
Just over a week ago it was my Mum's birthday and although creative card ideas have been a bit thin on the ground recently I knew I had to make one and not resort to buying .............. she'd never forgive me, lol! Now, a week or so before Mum's birthday I went over to the opening of Indigo Blu's new shop and I have to say it I was very impressed. If you're thinking of popping over, the shop is only going to be open 1 Saturday a month I think so check first. Anyway, I was late getting there and after a good browse in the beautifully set out shop which has lots of artwork on display, I almost missed the demos. I did manage to catch a few bits though and there was one card I glimpsed that stuck in my mind so I decided to make my version. I think it was Indigo Blu DT member Linda whose table I saw the card on so I do hope I'm giving credit to the right person. If I'm wrong and someone would like to let me know I'll change that detail.
This is a clean and simple card for me and I knew my Mum would love it especially the colours I chose.
NB If you click on the pics you can see an enlargement of the images.
I used a selection of Versamark chalk inks to stamp the images which are Indigo Blu's set called Stylised Flowers.
For one single flower I used black Versafine and when it was completely dry I placed a mask I had made by cutting a circle from a piece of card over it and blended Distress Inks over the flower. I removed the mask and added tiny spots of Glamour Dust fine glitter.
I stamped the sentiment which is from a Chocolate Baroque set (love that font) along the bottom again using black Versafine.
Finally I added the ribbon and the diecut butterfly and then layered onto co-ordinating card and then again onto the basecard.
That's it from me today. Thanks again to Linda for the inspiration and thank you for your visit today. Until next time ..........
