Just Testing...

Hi everyone and welcome! During this week the IndigoBlu International DT each get the chance to share a second project with you on their own blogs. For my contribution, and using a 6"MDF panel I took the chance to test one of the latest IndigoBlu stencils and some of the new paint colours...

This Roses Stencil is a 'ready to go' floral background with large blousy blooms covering the whole square beautifully. So whether you want to keep it simple and swipe paste or ink through it, or go to town as I have here, you'll not need much else to top it off. Having put Fine Modelling Paste through I covered the whole base with Black GeeSso Good Gesso as a primer. Then came layers of other matte IndigoBlu Acrylic Paints; Banana Custard, Postbox Red, and the new ones, Mulberry Bush and Lemon Meringue.

The great thing about having used a stencil - you can use it to add White GeeSso Good Gesso specifically to the raised roses (and black onto the spare leaves on the right). More black and white gesso around the edges and through the middle using a ruler with splatters of course gives the finished design a geometric look. And, keeping it simple, I die cut some black leaves using Coal Black Stamping Card and stamped one of the Word Blocks #1 in Claret StazOn ink on card painted and edged with gesso.

This is my contribution to the shared posts this week. Now I urge you to hop on over to the IndigoBlu blog and catch up on what the rest of the Design Team have created - they've risen to the task supremely once again!

And I'm pleased as punch to let you know that my latest set of cards, using IndigoBlu's 'Colour Me' floral stamp range, has been published in the May edition of Making Cards Magazine - in your shops on Friday!

Thank you so much for joining me today. Whatever the rest of the week holds for you I hope you get the chance to have some of your own creative fun and, of course, take care of yourselves. Jenny xxx
