A Poppy Card for Lyn

A card for Lyn 
Hi everyone, what a miserable cold day its turning out to be here.  Hope its warmer where you are.  Not good for July...........! 
I've been looking at the Spectrum Noir pencils for a while and dithering over whether I should buy them.  In the end they just happened to fall into my basket.

I used three reds, three greens and the black pencils, a paper stump and blending fluid to colour the poppies, leaves and seed heads on the Heartfelt Creations Poppy Stamp and then set about cutting them all out.  Boy did that take an age. I added a little glossy accents to the seed heads and Ranger black enamel accents to the centre of the poppy heads to give some texture.

A lovely stamp to work with, was really impressed with how easy it is to blend and work with the pencils and really enjoyed making the card. Poppies are my dear friend Lyns favourites and the card for her.

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
