Flowers For Indigo Blu

This time around the theme at Indigo Blu is flowers. I started by painting my heart in dark blue paint, adding the trusty chap stick then painting over again in pale blue. When this was all dry and wiped away I added a layer of Kroma Crackle and put it all to one side for days!

Next came the crackle stamp from the Alice in Wonderland plate, that I stamped and gilded.
Elizabeth Bennet has been stamped and paper pieced, and layered onto some cheesecloth. The flowers have all been cut from the TH die and sanded.
I'm also entering this into the Country View Crafts   challenge - How Does Your Garden Grow.
It's so cold again here today - have I missed Spring and Summer??
Thanks very much for looking and have a great weekend x

  7. I think that cheesecloth has to be the most versatile element used in creative projects, Sue, and you have used it brilliantly here! Way to go!

  15. Love your work, Sue, and absolutely love what you have done here. I have got this stamp and you have achieved a completely different look than I have been making with mine - that is the beauty of stamping! The cheesecloth, the gilding, and the colours you have used are glorious,
