Blue for IndigoBlu

 Hi folks and welcome to my blog.  I was recently perusing  IndigoBlu's  blog and noticed they've started a monthly challenge, the first one being... BLUE. It starts on the 21st of each month, so I thought I'd have a go...

IndigoBleu Anemone Corner.
IndigoBlu: Wild Meadow scroll
Versafine: Vintage Sepia.
Derwent Colour Soft pencils
Antiquities Detail Sparkle and Sprinkle EP266
Stampendous Shabby Blue embossing Enamel... disappointed that the blue didn't show all that much :(
Stamping all Day greetings tag
Seed beads.

  The first image was stamped directly onto the cartridge paper with Vintage Sepia the second image was stamped again with Versamark then heat embossed and the flowers cut out and mounted with silicone adhesive after being shaped.  Seed beads added to flower centres.

I used the corner scroll stamp from Wild Meadow on the  third layer... you can just see it peeping through.

Off to do some house work... which was my intention first thing this morning... but oh no I've been in the MR ... all day!  tut tut!! still better late than never...  feel I should have a coffee first  .. and Missi's feeling neglected, meowing  for attention... she's normally out and about but for some reason she wants to stay indoors! See still putting the dreaded HW off!.   ;o)
 Bye for now
Thanks for looking

What a beautiful card with those soft colours and gorgeous cut out flowers Sue. I'm so shocked that you've been putting off the HW - of course I've never done that myself LOL! Vicky x

Hi Suzi, This is so pretty and I love the pale pretty colours you are using lately. I tried to comment on your neopolitan icecream card but the comment box is not working for me, maybe it is not working for others as there were no other comments yet either.
It may be worth you copying the post then deleting the old one, just in case.
Hope you are well my friend.
Hugs June x

Crikey Sue, I didn't realise I had got so far behind with your gorgeous makes. Mind you I've been having quite a bit of trouble with Blogger recently. For some reason (and quite randomly) every time I try to do a blog hop some of the blogs refuse to load. It's not even the same blogs each time but it does make visiting very frustrating. Never mind, I've had a lovely treat going through your beautiful recent designs!

This one is wonderful and I love that anemone corner stamp. It looks so pretty in the blue too and the seed beads are a nice finishing touch.
