I hope that this finds you all well and happy and have had a great week - has anyone done anything really exciting that they want to share?
I have been busy doing loads of paperwork for the shop ......... boring, but it has to be done unfortunately, I have also been doing lots of orders for Mother's Day too which I love.
This week on the Allsorts Challenge is all about flowers. I am sure that there isn't any crafter out there that will struggle to do a card with this title.
I have chosen one of my Indigo Blu cards that we did in a workshop last week at the shop. I am just loving these stamps. Kay and Alfie are doing a fabulous job tempting us with such gorgeous designs.
This particular stamp is the Anemone corner which I must say is one of my favourites. I decided to use the guilding flakes with it and I chose Yorkshire Dales as it has a good percentage of green mixed with copper - a gorgeous mix. I applied Flitter Glu to the stamp and then used the flake. This technique is so straight forward but so effective. The colour on the image is from promarker cool aqua (I think! it was something aqua anyway!!) Just take care not to colour over the flake as it will rub it off a little.
The words were from the same stamp set and I used Labels 1 Spellbinder and added Bundled Sage DI to put a little colour around the edges.
A piece of organza ribbon and Creative Expressions Pearl glue finishes off the design.
I hope that you are tempted to have a go with the Indigo Blu stamps and the Flitter Glu - you will enjoy using it - everyone in the class certainly did!
As always the other members of the DT for Allsorts have left some gorgeous samples on the Challenge Blog so pop over and have a look. As ever there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs.
Thank you, as ever, for stopping by.
Enjoy a lovely weekend and I hope that you pop a comment in to say hello.
Bye for now
