Wall Art using Indigo Blue Stamps

Hi all

I was feeling a bit disappointed that I couldn't got to Ally Pally earlier this month when I saw a post showing that Indigo Blue wouldn't be there either and were offering a discount online instead.
So to console myself I ordered a few new stamps. When I got them I had to put them away for a couple of days (torture).....but then I finally found a bit of time to get messy so I made some art to go in an Ikea Frame that was sitting in the hallway ready to go back as I didn't need it (!).

I started by using spray inks by Oak House Studio in yellow, pink, blue and purple. Then I added some Dusky Concorde ink around the edge and a little black. Then I used the edge of my new eye stamp and some older stamps from the Butterfly Collector set, stamped them with Versamark and embossed with some white embossing powder.
On another piece of sprayed card I stamped the whole Dramatic Eye image with black Archival. Once dry I added some white Signo Uniball pen to make the eye come alive. I wrote some words with a black calligraphy pen on spare card then layered all onto a light cream then black card.

I played about with them and added them all onto the background layer, then added this to a 12 x 12 piece of purple card.

I popped the whole thing into the Ikea frame (only £9) and here it is....a gentle reminder when things get a bit tricky!

Hope you like it. Suz x
