Flutterby - IndigoBlu Demonstrator Inspiration ...

Morning! :)

Here we week into JULY!!! Shock - horror!!!! Where did half the year go to??
In Craft-land it's that time of year, when the 'man in the red suit' starts to creep up on us!! But before that, lets appreciate the summer for a while...and what better way than with some beautiful butterflies!
......... IndigoBlu Challenge ........
The challenge this month is Flutterby - and for my Demonstrator Inspiration piece, I made something that was more of a challenge to photograph than make!! Haha
I absolutely love working with acetate...but it's very difficult to lose the reflections and glare.
Hopefully you'll see the effects and beautiful shimmer going on in this card.

The black base card has been stamped with the Crackleglaze background, using Townhouse Teal and Aladdin - English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paint

I have used Magicals - from Lindy's Stamp Gang on the Big Butterfly wings...along with Mega Flake.
The Dinky Butterfly on the acetate has been stamped using our 'Flinky' technique...and painted with our wonderful paints.

The fabulous winner’s prize this month is your choice of IndigoBlu stamps.  As always, you have 3 options to choose from:

1:   2 Large stamp plates
2:   4 Small stamp plates
3:   1 Large and 2 small plates
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, your work will be on the Challenge Blog alongside the Design Team!

Don't forget to check out the Challenge DT's wonderful work for this challenge on the blog too xx

Take care
Happy Crafting

A Sign of Summer....

Wow! Another gorgeous day out there!!! The sun was desperately trying to barge its way through the curtains first thing this morning! It's lovely and cool in my craft room there I will stay! No arguments from me! lol The only problem I face... is the window... and sometimes the wildlife out there can be a lovely time waster!  This week, as well as all of the birds, the butterflies and bees are darting around...a few of them bumping into the window!! Ouch!!! 

With Summer and butterflies in mind, this is a card I made using the adorable 'Big Butterfly' stamp from IndigoBlu. One of my (many) favourites...and it looks all the more stunning with that touch of Mega Flake!

I made a batch of these as Thank You cards...very quick...very clean...and very simple!

IndigoBlu - Big Butterfly - 
IndigoBlu - Butterfly Collector - (little butterfly)

I am entering this into the challenge at Everybody Art - CAS

Happy Crafting
