Off The Edge - An IndigoBlu Challenge

Hello and Welcome back to my blog! 

I decided to take up the Challenge from IndigoBlu to create something "Off The Edge"!

Using some of the IndigoBlu paints was a must for me this time round as I love the versatility of them so I started off with various colours and a round sponge to create a background on a 12"x12" piece of card stock and covered it in multi coloured circles!

Once the background was created I cut the card up into four sections so I could make 4 cards and decide which one I would submit for the challenge!
I wasn't happy with the way the fourth card turned out, so ended up with three cards!

I decided to submit the Stylised Flowers for the "Off the Edge" Challenge. This is how I put the card together!
The image was stamped onto one of the painted panels and then I cut around two of the flower images to bring the image Off the Edge!

The flower heads were given the Mega Flake treatment using large flakes of Lancashire Rose flakes picking our the rose colour, then I used Gin & Tonic and picked out some of the green coloured flakes!
I then mounted the flower panel onto black card!

A piece of white card was folded in half and I cut off a length down the right hand side of the front face of the card and stamped a sentiment (from the Hocus Pocas stamp set) with Black Stazon, then using FlitterGlu to stamp the image of  Dandelions (from the Wild Meadow stamp set) slightly coming off the edge of the card! I covered the image Gin and Tonic flakes!

Thank you for stopping by today! Visit again soon. 
Happy Crafting, Sue xx
