It is Cec here and today I am bringing you a clean and simple card that I am calling Dictionary Butterfly.
I started by scanning the page in a dictionary that had the definition for Butterfly on it - look closely and you can see it down on the bottom right. I inserted the image into a new document in Word and scaled it to the size I wanted to cut it for my background (Click on the image and then on Format to get the size so you can change if desired). Next I added the Butterfly text at the top making sure that my image was centred on the page first. This is simple to do by making sure that the image is behind text (Right Click on Image after you insert it then click Wrap Text then click Behind Text).
The next step was to stamp one half of the Big Butterfly with Versamark and then emboss it with Ebony embossing powder.
I painted the butterfly using some IndigoBlu Metallic paints - Kingfisher Blue, Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty. Then I took a fluffy brush and went over the whole butterfly with Silver Luscious powder. This not only added wonderful shimmer to the butterfly but served to make the colours look a little more blended.
I adhered the panel to my card blank and then created a computer generated sentiment that I mounted on some purple card stock and added to the card with dimensional foam strips.
There you have my easy, peasy card. I hope this inspires you to create with some of the wonderful metallic paints from IndigoBlu.
I started with stamping down a beautiful quote from Victor Hugo and a grass silhouette in black archival ink directly to a card base.
Then die cut a square from a piece of card stock and blended in a mix of Distress inks to create ombre effect from bright yellow to dark green.
Using FlitterGlu stamped down the grass to the square panel a bit off the edge and covered the impression with Chariot of Fire Megaflakes. These Megaflakes come in a pure bright gold shade and stand out beautifully on a green-blue background.
Finally stamped down a bee from the same stamp set in black archival ink and mounted the square to the card base using foamed tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope, you enjoy this Summer card and you will take a look at the new release of IndigoBlu stamps.
Hello everyone! It's Solange Marques here!
Today I'll share with you a new project using the wonderful IndigoBlu products!
This month the theme is about wings. I love this theme!!!
I've made an altered clipboard:
I've covered the clipboard with IndigoBlu European Grand Tour Mixed Media Paper Pad 12x12 :
Today we are joined by one of our Brand Embassadors, Linda Simpson who has created a beautiful shadow box project for you.
Using Slap it on and the faded dots stencil I stencilled around the
outer frame of the shadow box. Once this was dry I then painted all over
using GeeSOO Good in Black. Once this was all dry I then used Gelatos
On Bockingford water colour card I stamped the Dinky Butterfly and
sentiment from Victorian Garden stamp set with black Versafine and
embossed with clear embossing powder. I then cut them out and coloured
with Green and Gold Luscious Powders.
I then adhered a piece of Bockingford watercolour card to a piece of
cardboard. I then proceeded to cover the top half with Gelatos Cotton
Candy, sprayed water on and painted into the card. I then used the
Pistachio for the bottom. Once this was dry I used the stamps from the
Victorian Garden to create a garden scene. I painted the bumble bees
with gold Luscious powder. Once this was all dry I then adhered to the
inside of the box with Slap it on.
4. To finish off I added the butterfly and sentiment to the outside of the box.
