Love IndigoBlu Luscious Pigment Powders – February Challenge

 

Hi there we are welcoming the February challenge for IndigoBlu, and showing off the beautiful IndigoBlu Luscious pigment powders ;

Love is all you Need

So in the words of the great Beatles  song – include anything Love related, hearts, flowers, weddings etc. We can’t wait to see how imaginative you will all be.

I have gone with a soft approach, using gentle colours and a variety of stamps to create the background. The focal image is an image torn from the ‘Lost Family’ A6 mixed media paper kit and knocked back with Gesso so that it softens into the background.

The cluster of embellishments can be created by stamping images from various stamp sets.

Butterfly from the IndigoBlu Floral Fantasy A5 stamp set

Cogs from the IndigoBlu Take the Time A5 stamp set

‘Love’ from the IndigoBlu word Blocks #1 stamp set by Mike Deakin

Stamp each of the elements  with ranger perfect medium (a sticky ink pad) onto a cream card stock, and apply the gorgeous Luscious powders with a soft brush to colour. I have used two colours, Coral on the heart and Bronze for the butterfly and cogs. The mica within the powders create a beautiful sheen when directed to the light … you really need to play with them yourself to see the true beauty.

Please join us on the Indigoblu Challenge Blog today, over over the coming month as the rest of the team will also be inspiring you their take on this theme.

Thanks for calling by, see you next time
