It's another beautiful sunny day down here in the South of England...and such a good time to share with you my Indian Summer card.  The lovely Clare invited all us 'out and about'  IndigoBlu Demonstrator girls to join in with the  'mid-challenge' reminder post for the IndigoBlu Challenge Blog :)
So here is mine, using one of my favourite IndigoBlu stamps...BIG Butterfly x

You still have plenty of time to join in and this is what is up for grabs!!!

There’s also the Winner’s Badge, and one for the Top 3, to display proudly on your Blog,  and the WINNER of the challenge will also be invited to do a GUEST SPOT on a future Challenge Launch post.  That’s right you’re work will be on the blog along with the Design Team.

Baker Ross - Christmas Coasters...

Hi all :)
Here is another Baker Ross project. Included in the box of goodies that they sent to me was a box of ceramic coasters...a bottle of crackle paint primer...and a pack of porcelain pens.

I used 4 different techniques with the gorgeous IndigoBlu Baroque Bauble stamp.
I put a thin coat of primer onto all 4 tiles and left them to dry. 
Tile 1) Stamped the bauble with Stazon and coloured random leaves with the blue porcelain pen.
Tile 2) Stamped the image with IndigoBlu FlitterGlu...carefully brushed over mica powder and then edged with Mega Flake.
Tile 3) This one was stamped with FlitterGlu and covered with Mega Flake. 
Tile 4) This was again stamped with FlitterGlu and then finished with Iridescent embossing powder tinted with Lilac. 
They were all finished off with a coat of Spray and Shine to seal them. 

Fab gift fact...I gave mine to my daughter and her b/f   for their new home x

Happy crafting
