Island Indigo !!!! Where have your been all my life ?


So I sat looking at my beautiful ink storage caddy full up with gorgeous inks in many different shades and it struck me - I have never ever used Island Indigo !!  Just how did I miss this little gem of a colour?   So I ordered in some co-ordinating cardstock and hey presto !!   I conjured up this little gem :-





I wanted to create a kind of photo type look for my card and the gorgeous three step rose from Picture Perfect helped me to achieve that.  The rose was stamped in Soft Sky, Pool Party and Island Indigo.   I found that I liked the softer shade of Island Indigo that was achieved by stamping off first onto a piece of scrap paper and then applying the stamp direct to my cardstock.   The sentiment is also from Picture Perfect.    

The gorgeous leaves are from the set Kinda Eclectic and again, I stamped off the image onto a piece of scrap before stamping direct to my cardstock.   I sponged some Pool Party over the leaves too.

The precision stamping was achieved using my beloved MISTI.

The ovals were die cut using my Ovals Collection framelits.

I love the effect and I do quite like my card.   Hope you do too.

Here is the video with step by step instructions :-

  4. Hi Linda, just catching up with your blog - great card design and like the colour. I have been trying to come out of my colour comfort zone recently (purples are my go to colour)and I found that it broadened my horizons and I discovered colours I really liked, but I am still drawn back to purples in the end! I saw someone wearing a dress the other day that was Island Indigo with Night of Navy flowers on it, I might try that colour combination on a card and see what it looks like! :)
