IndigoBlu guest design piece

 Hello my friends. In the last IndigoBlu challenge I made the top 3 and so they asked me if I wanted to do a guest design piece. Of course I accepted.

I started with a brusho background that i had that had bright colours fitting an Indian theme. The brusho colours are brilliant red, turquoise and leaf green. I stamped sentiment in versamark and embossed in black.

I got the echinacea and prepared 2 masks. I then stamped the flower and 
masked to create depth along the top and bottom edges in black archival.
I coloured with spectrum noir pencils and added wink of stella for some sparkle.
I coloured the sentiment with a white sharpie pen to make it pop.

I went around topper with faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress inks. Whendry i went round in versamark and embossed in gold sparkle.

Next i did the border on the base card. I left a margin and masked the 
card off with copy paper. I stamped the flower, overlapping with the help of the masks to create depth.
I drew squiggly lines with a black pen joining all the petals. I then coloured the negative space with spectrum pencils to match the brusho hues.

I then matted on white which helped the sentiment to pop and then black. Next i added another brusho layer and then black again.

Finished card is A5. As always I hope you like my make, Theresa xx

I really wish you could see the sparkle that's visible in real life.......
You can find this card and other inspiration on the IndigoBlu blog.
