Bye Bye Blooms & Wishes, Bold Butterfly and Island Indigo !

These gorgeous stamps, dies and Island Indigo card stock and ink have found their way onto the Retiring List.  What a shame ? 

I have had a lot of fun with Blooms & Wishes.  I love the abstract flowers which look stunning in many different colour combinations.



For today's project I decided to use Island Indigo and Gold heat embossing for my colour theme.  Island Indigo is a very strong striking colour and I have found that I get the best results when using the ink, by employing the "stamp on - stamp off" technique.  So before applying the stamp to my card stock, I tend to stamp off the excess ink once on a piece of scrap before stamping directly onto my card.  This softens the colour considerably.

To add a little embellishment, I used my retiring Bold Butterfly Framelits.



I am pleased with the results and just sorry that everything apart from the Whisper White card stock and embossing powder will no longer be available as they are not carrying over in the new Annual Catalogue which will be launched on 1 June.

Hope you like my little composition - thanks for looking.

Bye for now,

Linda xx
