This is a quick post so that I can enter the first IndigoBlu challenge which is blue ! This was a double challenge (if there is such a thing?) as I didn't have much time to make something and I'm not the fastest crafter in the west !
The background was made with lots of Distress Stains, including Picket Fence, and then I spritzed it with London Blue Dylusions spray and then water. I've used Salty Ocean DI and the Chicken Wire stencil and some some second generation stamping with Cobalt Blue Archival ink. The embossing folder is a new Tim Holtz one and I've rubbed Salty Ocean and Broken China DI over it. The row of cotton reels are from the InidgoBlu Sewing Mends the Soul set and I've stamped them close to one another so I could cut them out to make a border. The main image and the text is also from the same set.
The flower has been cut from pages from an old book using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and I've sprayed it with some more Dylusions. The buttons are some more that I've made with Air Dry Clay and then used Fresco Finish paint.
That's me for now, tea's ready and I'm starving !
