Indigo blu - dramatic eye

Hello my lovelies! How are you this morning? I hope you are doing well! My girls and i had a fun day yesterday - we went shopping for sandals then had lunch at pizza express and finally we had fun at home making props for the play from salt dough and then doing some face painting! We have the summer fair coming up again and thats one of my jobs! Anyway - it was a good day - here's hoping today will be as much fun!

I have been playing with another new stamp from Indigo blu that i got at happy stampers in Port Sunlight. Here's my make.


I created the background first using distress inks - fossilised amber, ripe persimmon and abandoned coral, I also used a stencil from crafters workshop and some limor circle stamps plus another stamp. 


I stamped the eye in black archival plus the sentiment (CB). Finally I used walnut stain around the edges.  A beautiful stamp - love it!!!

Have a great friday and I'll see you around again soon!

Hugs

Rachel xx
