A Sketch - Indigo Blu style

Challenge 20 in the Indigo Blu challenge blog this month is a sketch. so I decided to enter with a Christmas card with new stamps I bought recently.

I had great fun making this one. The main image is stamped with treee branch versafine ink then coloured with Country Cottage paints. the mat behind the main image is snowflake lace, stamped with copper Cottage paint which has been lightly misted. Once this was dry I over stamped with flitter glue and Autumn Blaze gilding flakes. The panel is then inked with old paper distress ink. The large mat is done in the same way but inked more lightly. I also used flitter glue and the same gildiong flakes around the edges of each mat. These were then mounted onto brown card, then matted onto a cream A5 card blank. Oh, and the red ribbon was added to the large mat. The main image is mounted using pinflair gel to raise it up a bit. Both mats are tucked behind the ribbon.

Finally, gems were added to the centre of some of the snow flakes. Nothing like a bit of bling at Christmas is there.

I hope you like my card and welcome feedback.

Bye for now.
