Happy Wednesday everyone,
Congratulations to Sue the Iron, No 24 who was this months winner of the IndigoBlu blog challenge and scrummy prize.

I really loved making the sunflower card using the IndigoBlu stamps and took the theme a step further to make this altered gift box. The box is made out of chipboard 6 x 6 squares (the lid is a little larger), painted with black acrylic. Then I covered it with stamped white card panels, inked with Mowed Lawn and Vintage Photo distress ink and then stamped with black Versafine ink. Stamps used were:
Nature 1 - Butterfly
Poppy Meadow - tag detail
I used yellow and orange Copic Ciao Markers and a walnut stain distress pen for the brown centre to colour the sunflower, and then added a few layers of glossy accent dots to the brown centre to give a textured finish. I had to add a sprinkle of brown art glitter to finish it off lol!!
Let your imagination run wild, get out your inks, paints, pastels and stamps and have loads of fun getting creative :-)
