Words are all You Need ...... quick reminder

Morning folks,

Happy Wednesday!

Have you entered the latest IndigoBlu Challenge yet?  There's still a week to go to get your entries in, so there's plenty of time for you to get all creative.

It's all about Words this month,  you'll find some fabulous quotes and sentiments in the IndigoBlu stamp range, no doubt you've all got plenty in your stash to choose from, the problem will be deciding which one!

One of my favourite stamp sets at the moment is the brand new Under the Sea ..... I love it!!!  I've used one of the sentiment stamps that comes in the set, for my inspiration piece for you today .....

How true is that saying.   I can tell you, I've discovered a few new oceans over the years.  Life will never be dull if you have the courage to take a risk every now and again!

Anyway .... back to the card.  This was so simple to make .... I started by inking a piece of white cardstock using Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and a touch of Shabby Shutters).  Did my usual thing with some water, and then mopped up the excess, leaving that nice mottled effect in the background.

I then stamped the Bubbles background, randomly over the card, using Versamark ink and then dusted over the top with some Mica Powders.  There's a few brands on the market at the moment, I used the Luminarte Artist Pigments on my design ...... really nice fine powders with intense colour.  You'll find them on the IndigoBlu website.

I then stamped the words onto a seperate piece of white card, using Majestic Blue Versafine.  I cut it out using Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and cut a frame to go around the edge from navy cardstock

I attached this onto the bubble panel using foam pads, mat it onto a piece of navy cardstock and attached it to the front of a 6x6 square cardblank.
I've finished it off by adding some tiny gemstones around the edge, to give that porthole look , and added a few tiny 'bubbles' around the words using Glossy Accents and a touch of clear fine crystal glitter.

Inside has been given a similar treatment so that it all co-ordinates.

Feeling inspired yet?  Need some more ideas?  Well, pop over to the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT have been up to.
Go on ..... give the challenge a go.  Who knows you might be our next winner ..... have fun and good luck!!

If you're loving these new stamps as much as I am, why not pop over later, to the IndigoBlu Blog and have a read of today's post.  It's me on there again, and I've got another idea for you using the Under the Sea stamps, along with the fabulous new Design Alphabet.  Here's a little sneaky peek for you .....

Thanks for popping by today .... have a wonderful Wednesday.

Cheerio until next time
