I've got the Blues ...... the IndigoBlu's

Happy Wednesday folks!

It's the 21st of the month again .... soon comes around doesn't it!   Of course, that means it's time for a new theme over on the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog.

Thanks to everyone that entered the challenge last month.  We had some fabulous entries for Words are All You Need.
Congratulations to the winner ......
Number 17 ......  Gwen

Enjoy your prize.

Don't forget to check out the Challenge Blog to see if you're entry was chosen as one of the DT's Top 3 for the month too.  

On to this months theme ....... 


It's all about using one colour, or shades, tints or tones, of one colour.

I went with ......... BLUE

I love this little Wild Flowers stamp, it looks fab whatever colour you use.

I started out by masking off the edge of a square piece of white cardstock, then added colour using Distress Inks - Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans.
I then flicked some water over the top and used kitchen roll to mop up the excess

With the masking still in place I stamped the Wild Flowers across the bottom of the card, using Majestic Blue Versafine ink

I coloured in the flowers using the same Distress inks I used for the background.  I applied the ink directly to my craft sheet, spritzed with a little water then used a paint brush ..... quick and easy.

The masking tape was removed, and I added some navy blue satin ribbon across and finished it with a bow.  The final touch was my sentiment ...... from the Grand Tour II set, again stamped in the Majestic Blue Versafine.

The whole thing was then mat onto some navy card and attached to the front of a 6x6 cardblank. 

Here's a look at the inside too .....

Go on .... get out your IndigoBlu stamps and give the challenge a go.  There's a great prize up for grabs again this month ...... with a little something extra added on ..... oooooh!!!  Curious?  Then hop over to the Challenge Blog to find out what.

It's also my turn to post on the IndigoBlu DT Blog today ..... why not head on over there later to see what else I've been up to ..... here's a little sneaky peek at today's project ......

Thanks for popping by........ enjoy your day.

Cheerio until next time
