Good morning All 

I am really pleased to be able to show case my card as a Guest Designer for 

this months Challenge over at IndigoBlu 

I am very excited to have the opportunity to 
use one of my new stamps  Elsie

Here is my card 

First I used one of my new winning stamp Elsie - she is so beautiful - and  used  permanent ink Archival Tree Branch to ink her 
onto a shinny card stock. Was not sure if I needed a mask so stamped a faint image in 
black just in case. 

Here is the selection of the products I used

 I used Cosmic Shimmer teal paints around her to make a texture 
affect and did not need the mask as the paints were so easy to use. 

 Added brown ribbon around the edge of the topper using red tape.

Using a white card stock I then coloured the card with the Colour Cloud 
Teal to bring the colours all together and mounted onto a white card blank. 

I added extra texture paint using the Shinny acrylic paints 

Used die cut flowers,around the edges of the topper which again I coloured with Colour Cloud. 

Added teal glitter to the centers and added a brown bow. 

Three drops of glitter to the corners and used five flowers at the top 
and three at the bottom trying to balance the picture. 

I hope you like it
