Hi everyone and welcome. It's challenge time at IndigoBlu and the theme for this month is 'Words are all you need'.
I have always loved this IndigoBlu sentiment (you may have seen it somewhere else from me this month... :) and took it as the focal point of this card as I find 'words are all you need' to get your mojo working sometimes. Using Archival Ink ensures a crisp image from the stamp and Distress Stains gave the sentiment panel a shabby chic feel.
Taking the words literally I used the fabulous Clock Face Stencil with Archival Ink over a background of White Gee-Sso Good and Park Lane English Cottage Artists Acrylic Paint. These dry beautifully matte and are the perfect base for layering over other inks and sprays.
The Black and White Gee-Sso Good are also perfect for adding splatters and lines to add to the grungy, aged feel and frame the card. I also used the cogs and gears stamp from the same 'Take The Time' set, again with Archival Ink.
Don't you just love those daisies? I used a couple of the Alter Egos, painting them with Gold and Pantry White English Cottage Artists Acrylic Paint.
If you use thick brush strokes to layer on the petals and then heat on a high setting with your heat gun the paint bubbles up and texturises to give them even more definition.
Some vellum die cut leaves and a matting layer completed the card and helped to draw the eye onto the fabulous sentiment.
Please do pop over to the new IndigoBlu challenge to see what the design team have been up to, as they have worked hard to provide you with even more inspiration. And remember, a prize awaits the winner of the challenge this and every month, so what are you waiting for?
Thanks for joining me this Easter Monday and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
