Red at Indigo Blu

Good morning Lovelies! I hope you are well and happy!

Today it is time for the start of a new challenge over at indigoblublogchallenge.  The theme of our hop and new challenge is the colour Red!

I have used some of the new stamps, from the recent release - and also cottage paints and an indigo blu stencil. Details and links are below but here is a look at my card first.

Items used:

I started by creating the background - I used texture paste through the stencil and once dry painted over with the red paint - then using my fingers I added some gold and also some watered down gold drips.

I also added some text script from the tasty textures stamps to the background in red archival - then I stamped the main two images and cut them and coloured them.

Here's a close up of some of that texture paste!

I would like to enter this into the craftstamper take-it-make-it-challenge-february.text me

I hope you can join us at Indigo blu for the blog hop and the challenge!

Big hugs
