Teal and brown at Indigo Blu

Hello there! How are you today? I hope you are both well and happy. There's a new challenge starting over at Indigo blu today and the theme is teal and brown - love that colour combo. I hope you do too and will be able to join in with us - you might be a lucky winner!

Here's what I made:


Oh I did enjoy making this card - infact this is what I spent the morning of my birthday doing earlier this month. The card was for a friend who used to be my boss when I was a chemistry teacher. She loved it too! I used stamps from the following sets by Indigo Blu and other indigo blu goodies:

I started by adding grungepaste through the rose stencil and when dry painting with townhouse teal.I then stamped on this in both brown and teal. The PT was stamped in sepia and coloured up in distress inks. 


I added the lace and the photo and then stamped and fussycut the butterflies and the conical flask with flowers,


I do hope you will be able to join us at Indigo Blu Challenge this month - all you need to do is follow the theme and use brown and teal!

Big hugs
