Guest designer at Indigo Blu!

Hi again, for some reason blogger didn't post this earlier today so my posts are like buses ... none for ages and then two at once lol. I was delighted to be invited to be Guest Designer over at Indigo Blu  Challenge where the challenge theme is 'A touch of red'. There is lots of inspiration from the talented DT over on the challenge blog and some gorgeous goodies for the lucky winner so its well worth a visit

This challenge was a great excuse to use some of my favourite Indigo Blu stamps too. I began by stamping the A6 Poppy Heart stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured the image with Graph'It  markers before distressing the edges with my craft knife and matting on black card. I created a background with the gorgeous English Flourish stamp, using black archival ink on white card. The next layer was made using the A6 Harlequin stamp, again with black archival ink on white card. I've used black card to mat and layer and then added some lace, ribbon and a little paper poppy. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations: anything goes with twist: hearts
Craft Hoarders Anonymous: how I love thee (hoarded item: paper poppy)
Deep Ocean: love is all around
Loves rubber stamps: show us some red
Ooh La La: love
Papertake weekly: hearts and flowers

Thanks for popping by
