INDIGOBLU july challenge "precious metals"

hello crafty friends!


a new month means a new challenge at INDIGOBLU challenge blog! and this month the theme is... challenge 30 - PRECIOUS METALS

just think megaflakes, metallic paints, anything that reminds you of precious metals, and of course INDIGOBLU stamps!

for the complete rules and how to enter, follow this LINK.

and here is a little bit of inspiration from me to get you started -


to create my card i used one of my favourite INDIGOBLU stamp sets - BLAZING POPPIES red rubber stamp -


and here are some close ups from my project - 

for my card base i used red cardstock - 15 x 21cm, which i folded in two. then i took a 10 x 14,5cm piece of white cardstock and coloured one half with INDIGOBLU english cottage artist's acrylic paint metallic SILVER and GOLDFINGER.


then i stamped the image with blazing poppies red rubber stamp and RANGER jet black ink. after the ink has dried i coloured the poppies with INDIGOBLU english cottage artists acrylic paint postbox RED.


for the small flowers i used INDIGOBLU english cottage artists acrylic paint PARK LANE mixed with a bit of INDIGOBLU english cottage artists acrylic paint PANTRY WHITE to get a lighter tint.


i hope i managed to inspire you today!
