IndigoBlu Challenge ~ Time Flies

It's time for a brand NEW monthly challenge over at the IndigoBlu challenge blog today and the new theme is... Time Flies...

It most certainly does! Annnnnddddd... I would be totally lost without my dear friends.... xo

Nothing nicer than being back in the studio.. getting painty, inky and messy !

Family life has been taking me away from crafting and my computer just lately, but yesterday I spent a lovely couple of hours in my lovely (warm!) studio.. it was good to get inside and play with ALL THINGS IndigoBlu I think being away has made me appreciate all the beautiful stamps, paint and papers available even more! ♥♥♥

I have used a gorgeous sheet of 190gsm mixed media paper from the Belle Epoque 6"x6" stack for the background which was treated to a light water wash of white GeeSoo Good!

Once dry, I shabby'd up the background using a bottle top and a gorgeous Limor Webber stamp from the Rugged Edge A5 set. Giving the background a good old splashing of watered down English Cottage {Gold} and also {Copper} artist's metallic acrylic paint.. too much fun!

A sentiment from the Enjoy Life A5 stamp set was stamped and embossed onto white cardstock then mounted onto a piece of painted cardstock painted with both Hot Cocca and Townhouse Teal {English Cottage} paints. 

While everything was drying, I stamped the beautiful butterfly from the Wild Meadow A5 stamp set onto white cardstock using a black ink pad then over stamping with FlitterGlu and my all time favourite Chocolate Box Mega Flakes, yummy!
