Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well, I am having a job keeping track of the days this week, how is it Thursday already?? I think that even though Paul isn't working that Bank Holiday Monday really threw me out, its a good job we don't have any appointments this week.
While we were in Asda on Wednesday I saw a Indigo Blu Craft Boxed Magazine, I quite liked the look of the stamps so I treated myself, I opened it today and the stamps were nicer than I thought, you also got a mask, embossing folder and a die. You also got some lovely papers, really nice quality too.
So today's card was inspired by one featured on the magazine. I took a piece of white stamping card, I used a Stampin Up Background script style stamp on the right hand side of the card, I stamped them randomly, for the left hand side of the I used one of the stamps from the Magazine, it's a Post Mark style stamp, I used Wild Honey Distress Ink to blend over the right side and So Saffron ink to blend over the left. I set this to one side and started working on the focal panel of the card. I used one of stamps that came with the Magazine and stamped it onto a 2 inch wide piece of card that was the same length as my card front. I stamped the image in the centre of the piece and then rotated the stamp and added a section of it at the top and bottom of the strip. I needed something therapeutic to do so I decided to sit and colour the flowers with my Polychromos, blending 4 colours together for each flower 🌼 and also the leaves. Once I had finished the colouring I blended Wild Honey distress ink over the background of the strip. I mounted it onto a slightly bigger piece of Black card, I mounted my background onto a black matt too and added it to an A5 card base, I attached my strip and then stamped a sentiment and punched it out making a black layer too, I placed it where I had left a space in the stamping. To finish the card I die cut 3 Moths (i think) from card that I had blended the same colours as the main background. I placed them randomly around the card.
I hope you like my Challenge card, I love the Autumnal shades on this card.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
