Spring Mixed Media layout

Hello everyone!! It's Solange Marques here again!
Today I'll share with you a new project using the wonderful IndigoBlu products!
The month theme is Spring, then I prepared a Spring layout with a lot of flowers and butterflies!

I used the collections: Floral Fantasy and Damage Damask Mixed Media Paper pads12x12.
I've stamped some daisies using Blooming Great  A5 stamp, and I've used IndigoBlu English Cottage Artist's Acrylic paints : Banana Custard, Lemon Meringue, Frosty Sky and Hot Cocoa.

On the background I've used Honeycomb Background A6 stamp :

I've applied Lancashire Rose MegaFlakes on the chipboard using Flitterglu:

Easter Egg

Hello, It's Kay M here today with my spring project, a decorated egg which are a wonderful celebration of the season.   I have decorated a papermache two part egg shaped box, just perfect to house a chocolate egg!

A number of leaf sprigs were die cut and applied all over the outer surface using the Slap-it-On Matt  then GeeSsoGood white was painted both on the outside, and inside of the egg, then left to dry.    
I painted the inside with Lime Marmalade for a bright pop of colour.

The outside was painted first with Peppermint Tea and dried.  Then I applied Olive Waistcoat over the leaf shapes with a paint brush and removed excess with kitchen towel so the paint was removed from the raised areas.  LimeMarmalade was then dry brushed over, this gave a lovely textured appearance to the egg.

A sentiment from Victorian Garden was stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear powder onto white card, cut out and edged in black ink and adhered to the egg.

The flower sprig from the Clock Work Stamp Set was repeatedly stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear powder onto white card.  They were then painted with Mulberry Bush and Lemon Meringue paints and after the flowers had been fussy cut, they were glued onto the leaf shapes.

The Bee from Victorian Garden was repeatedly stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear powder onto heat resistant acetate.   Lemon Meringue paint was painted over the bodies and left to dry.   The Bee's were then fussy cut and attached to the egg.
I finished by adding a chocolate egg!

I do hope you have enjoyed my project and are inspired for you Easter makes.

Gilded Easter Egg cards with Emmy

Hello IndigoBlu fans!

Emmy here with my first project for March. This month the focus on IndigoBlu blog is on Spring. And what is the best thing about Spring, beside the flowers - Easter of course. So, I've prepared two quick and charming Easter cards to share with you using Indigoblu Easter Egg A6 Red Rubber Stamp and a lot of different colours distress ink pads.

To create these cards I heat embossed the image using Indigoblu Easter Egg A6 Red Rubber Stamp and gold/silver embossing powder. Once the image has cooled down I used two sets of Tim Holtz Distress ink pads to colour my Easter eggs.

I hope you enjoyed today's post!

Have a wonderful creative weekend!

Butterfly Tag

 Cheremane here with you today, let me take you for a walk through a Victorian Garden with some stunning new IndigoBlu goodies.

I started with a little resin frame I had in my stash and painted it with the New Junk and Disorderly paint Olive Waistcoat.

I mixed 1 part paint to 4 parts water to make a spritz with Warm Tan, another of the new paint colours, then spritzed a Junk and Disorderly tag and let it dry before stamping one of the sentiments from the new Victorian Garden stamp set. I added some Steam Whistle paint eekkk another new colour to some phat foam.

 I then used the Steam Whistle and the phat foam to stamp the lovely grasses from Victorian Garden stamp set. Stamping with the Indigoblu paints is so effective but make sure you clean your stamp straight away.

I added some of the Warm Tan to phat foam and stamped one of the butterflies from Victorian Garden, I also spritzed the paper roses with the Warm Tan and Olive Waistcoat paint to coordinate with the other elements.

To finish off I edged the tag with Steam Whistle then I attached the roses and butterfly with glue gel, added some green micro beads and some grey ribbon. There we have it a beautiful Victorian Garden walk.

Thank you so much for stopping by be sure to pop back again soon to be inspired by the team.
