Indigoblu Challenge - Spring Blossoms
This is my entry for the April, 2014 Indigoblu challenge - Spring Blossoms.
Tulips herald Spring therefore this stamp seemed the obvious choice for this Challenge. To start with I stamped the Tulip with Gellato's then over stamped it with Watering Can Archival ink. I then masked off the Tulip and randomly stamped Best Wishes for the background using blended Gelato's. This was then distressed around the edges and layered it onto black card giving a wide frame. This was then layered onto yellow Bazill Basics and edged this by hand with a black pen. The whole thing was then layered onto a marble background made with shaving foam and spray inks.
I stamped Spring onto the same marble background and cut out a tag shape which was attached to the top of the card. I tried a ribbon bow on the tag but it seemed too fussy therefore I opted for a blob of glue covered with black Distress Glitter (I love Distress Glitter!) to give the appearance of a brad fastening the tag to the card.
All was layered onto cream card to finish off. Take a look at the Indigoblu Blog as there is some lovely DT inspiration.
