Bright beautiful and Luscious!

Good morning all! A quick reminder post today to bring the Indigo Blu challenge back to your attention! The theme this month is bright and beautiful! Just use indigo blu stamps and link your make here.

I have been lucky enough to get hold of some of the beautiful pigment Luscious that Indigo Blu launched over the summer. I used it in this project mixed with water as a paint - mixed with thick slap it on through a stencil and mixed with embossing powder. Its very versatile! And it produces such a beautiful sheen. Here's what I made!

So I have used the following stamps:

I used three colours of luscious-pigment-powders - gold, orange and purple. I used them mostly mixed with water as a form of paint but in the background also combined them with thick slap it on and pasted through texture-6-x-6 stencil.

On the butterfly and the 'doily' I stamped the images in flitterglu then added a mix of the luscious powders and embossing powder. You can get an idea of the sheen on this photo - its really pretty!

I hope you can join us - you have a chance of winning a fabulous prize! 

Big hugs
