IndigoBlu August Blog Challenge - All things Bright & Beautiful

Hello there, how are you today?

I have an inspiration piece to share with you in the shape of an Easel Card. Of course I had to use the New Luscious Powders, along with a New Stamp called "Owl always love you"!

Each month IndigoBlu run a blog challenge with a different theme and the Design Team put together different projects to help Inspire you to get the most out of the stamps you may have purchase from them along with the other products they sell.

As an incentive for you to join in with the fun of the challenge they offer stamp sets as a prize for the winner, plus you are asked to be a Guest Designer.
The DT also pick 3 Top projects and these people are asked to to be a Guest Designer for the next challenge. That’s right, your work will be on the Challenge Blog alongside the Design Team!
When you win you get to choose which stamp you would like.
1: 2 Large stamp plates (A5)
2: 4 Small stamp plates (A6)
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. 

To enter, all you have to do is to follow the theme for the month and to use IndigoBlu stamps! Why not have a go. If you have any questions, or not sure how to enter ask away!

So back to the card above. As I mentioned earlier in the post I made a Easel card for a change as I do like to make different card folds.
. I'm not going to go too much into the making of this card but will put up a video tutorial I filmed a while ago at the end of this post.

Using white card and my die cutting machine I cut out two plain ovals along with two scalloped ovals that will be painted.
 Once I had stamped the Owl image on a plain oval and painted it with the Luscious Powders I left this to dry and made up a spray bottle containing water and Silver Luscious to spray over the image. 
The scalloped oval was painted with Lemon Meringue English Cottage Acrylic Paint and whilst wet I added some watered down Blue Luscious in strips and added splats of pink watered down Luscious. 
Before this piece was added to the Easel card I attached some double sided tape to the back and stuck down three contrasting colours of metallic thread. I added more double sided tape to the back and stuck it onto the card front.
 I then stamped out just the flower section of the stamp a few times onto a piece of spare white card, painted these flowers in the same colours as the main image, cut out and layered the large group of flowers and attached these to the base to act as a stopper. 
 Faux stitches were added to the top and bottom of the card panels and to the sentiment which I cut apart into blocks.
 Well that all for today, don't forget to check out the video below.
Happy Crafting xx
