Indigoblu Words Challenge #144



I spotted that Indigoblu Challenge blog had a challenge theme of words this month - and thought I would have a go at creating something to enter the challenge. 

I started by spritzing my background with a mix of blue shade Cosmic Shimmer Mica Sprays.  Once dry I stamped my words (Indigoblu BFF set). 

I then started to add my border detail - I've used a Christmas stamp - (Indigoblu Baubles Flourish).   I love this stamp because it's perfect for Christmas - but the rest of the year, just stamp the flourish part and turn the snowflakes into flowers!

I then added plenty of white and black pen highlights - including some little white dot swirls in the background.  It's been mounted onto a simple black mount onto a 5x7" card.

I am entering this for the Indigoblu Challenge Blog Words are all you need Challenge

happy crafting

I love it when people think outside the box and use stamped images in different ways. What a brilliant idea for transforming a 'Christmas' stamp. Thanks for joining us at IndigoBlu. Jenny x
