IndigoBlu Challenge #10

Good morning,

Told you I'd be back!

It's the 21st of the month so that means there's a new challenge theme over at IndigoBlu.  Before I tell you what this months theme is, a big Thank You to everyone that entered last month.  We had some fabulous entries for the Chocolate Orange challenge.

Well Done to ......... Number 3, our challenge winner.   Congratulations! Stephanie Cunningham  Enjoy our prize.
Let's see if we can tempt a few more of you to join in this month.
What's the theme?  Well, very fitting for the month of November I think,  it's ..........

Lest We Forget

We'd like to see all your beautiful poppy designs. I've kept my inspiration piece quite simple.  It'a a nice large 8x8 card, not too fussy.

I stamped the IndigoBlu Wild Flowers across the centre of a piece of white cardstock using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then stamped the image again onto a seperate piece of card.  I then die cut this using a Nestabilities circle die, and layered it onto a larger one cut in red.
I then stamped one of the flower heads twice more, and cut them out.  The poppy layers were then coloured using Barn Door Distress ink, and layered using silicone glue to add a bit of dimension

The sentiment is from the IndigoBlu Poppy Meadow stamp set, one of my favourites, stamped in the centre at the bottom of the card.  I've then dotted the card randomly around the words, using Barn Door Distress Re-inker on the end of a cocktail stick

To finish off I've added some red vintage seam binding across the centre, a pretty bow and mat using more red cardstock.

Of course the inside's been finished off to match

Hope you like it, and that I've inspired you to give the challenge a go.  The rules are simple .....
- one entry per person
- it can be anything you like - a card, altered art, a home decor piece, a scrapbook page, whatever takes     your fancy 
- use IndigoBlu stamps only,
- and follow the theme.
Please link your actual post containing your challenge entry, not just your Blog, and you must also link back to the Challenge Blog in your post.  Simple!
There's another fab prize up for grabs so why not give it a go.  You have until 8pm on December 20th to get your entries in.  Good luck everyone. 

Thanks for looking
