A Crafty Piece inspired by Leandra

Paperartsy Lin Brown Jofy Clare Charvill
It's been a really inky fun week or so playing with all the new stamps from JOFY and Lin Brown.  After attending the Paperartsy workshops at CHA-UK a couple of weeks ago Leandra gave me Lins three new stamp plates to take away and play with. Thank you Leandra, they've been stamping away already along with the new one from Jo, thank you Jo too. Inspired by the workshop sample we followed and the new painty techniques I picked up this was my crafty make for my sister and her birthday. She loves sunflowers.

That cheeky caterpillar is so darn cute :-)  I used Rangers black and white enamel to make his eyes pop out.  Will be running a couple of local workshops on this and my little shadow box project in the next few weeks.  Will post more info once I've got the dates sorted.  
Ta ta for now, thanks for calling by and chat again soon.


  1. Very cute Clare. What do you use to make the white dots? Is it paint or an ink?
    I like it, have fun playing and discovering new techniques!!

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
