Recently, I've found that my craft mojo has deserted me a little. And I think I needed a little motivation to spur me back into action. That came in the form of the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge. I've never entered any kind of craft competition or challenge previously, but a couple of my crafting friends persuaded me that I should give it a try.
I actually really enjoyed messing about with inks and stamps and other bits and bobs, in order to make my challenge entry. It reminded me of how chilled out I feel when I'm in the craft "zone".
So, here is my entry for the IndigoBlu Blog Challenge, number 17:
The background was created by stamping the "Love Is" heart stamp randomly all over the white tag. Then applying Distress Inks in the following colours: Spiced Marmalade; Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo. The main stamped image is "Juliet", stamped and embossed in gold. I used gold gilding flakes and some mica flakes to add a rich sparkly finishing touch.
