Blogging again today...
...with another one of the fabulous new stamps from IndigoBlu. This one is the 'Dragonfly' Dinkie. A gorgeous little stamp with so much detail.
I created the background using IndigoBlu English Cottage Artist Acrylic paints. I sprayed some white card to create the orange background then added some texture by sprinkling black and white embossing powder over the top and heating from underneath.
I stamped the dragonfly then embossed it using back embossing powder. I then stamped the dragonfly on to some vellum with FlitterGlu and added Mega Flakes, then adhered the centre of the vellum dragonfly to the embossed one on the card.  
I stamped out the word fly using the 'Design Alphabet' and cut the letters out individually. I cut out a mount for each letter and flaked them for the letters to sit on. 

I re-created this design using the same techniques but using a blue colour theme.

Lost In Thought

Hi there, and welcome to another blog post using one of the fabulous new stamps from IndigoBlu.

This one is 'Lost In Thought' designed by Kay Halliwell Sutton.


This is a nice big stamp that can be stamped on to patterned paper or coloured in.

I stamped it on to white card and coloured it in using Spectrum Noirs using grey tones.
I coloured the background paint using IndigoBlu English Cottage Artists Acrylic paints.

I stamped the background using the new 'Rugged Edge' A5 stamp sets designed by Limor Webber. I then spashed some spots of white Gesso over the top.
I cut out the image and tuck it over the top of the stamped background using foam pads.

All the products I have used will be available on the IndigoBlu website at

Dramatic Eye

Hi folks...

Well, this is my first proper blog post for the new year. Yes, I know over half of January has already gone by... but I had a bit of a computer issue a couple of weeks ago due to my laptop having a fit. I managed to send my computer away and all the data, including all my work images was successfully retrieved. Phew... So I have only just had chance to have a play with the new one and get to grips with all the new programmes etc.... So here it is... my first proper post of 2015!!!

I have been playing with the new stamps from IndigoBlu, including the new designs from Limor Webber. These are the most amazing stamps, they have a grungy feel and are right up my street.

I chose the 'Dramatic Eye' A6 stamp and the 'Rugged Edge' A5 stamp set to play with, both designed by Limor.

I sprayed painted a piece of white card with IndigoBlu English Cottage Artists Acrylic paints.

I cut some white pieces of card in to strips at 1cm and 2cm widths then stamped them with the four stamps from the 'Rugged Edge' stamp set. Then inked them with distress inks and adhered them to the top and bottom of the background card.

I then stamped the 'Dramatic Eye' stamp in the middle of the background card and highlighted areas with  white pencil.

I sprayed a piece of hessian ribbon with the paint and added bits of it to the card. I stamped the sentiment and adhered it to a piece of the hessian.
