Welcome to Friend Friday with Indigo Blu

We just love sharing  with our friends and this month we are delighted to be joined by Indigo Blu, with their amazing stamp designs created by Kay Halliwell-Sutton.  Indigo Blu are a British company, their stamps suitable for cards, scrapbooking and mixed media, their designs range from cute to elegant with eclectic in-between; so there really is something for everyone!

Indigo Blu stamps are the perfect marriage to Chameleon pens, our one pen blends allow multiple tones to be achieved easily on their designs as can be seen in today’s projects.


The above designs were created using Chameleon pens, Tangerine (OR3), Mellow Yellow (YO2), Olive Green (OL3), Crimson Red (RD4), Fuchsia (PK5) and Peony Pink (PK4) together with Indigo Blu stamps Colour Me Daisy, lily and Anemone.  Other Materials used include white card and Diamond Stickles.


The Anemone was coloured by fusing the brush nib of the Tangerine pen for 25 seconds and then colouring from the centre of the flower out towards the edge. The process was then repeated with the Crimson red pen colouring from the outer edge of the petal towards the middle, this gives the effect of both colours blending together. The outer petals were then given an overlay of red to give orangey red petals. The centre of the flower was coloured with the bullet nib of the pen by fusing for 15 seconds and then hopping around the little circles to give a variation of colour, Stickles was then added to the pollen buds to finish.


The daisy petals were coloured with the Peony Pink pen without fusing and then the Fuchsia brush nib was fused for 15 seconds and then flicked from the outer edge of the petal towards the centre to give a bold edge to the design. The centre was then coloured with the Tangerine pen, the bullet nib was fused for 15 seconds and then each little bud coloured randomly to give the variation of colour.


The lily petals were coloured using the Tangerine and Mellow Yellow pens alternating each little stipe without fusing, the mellow yellow pen was then fused for 25 seconds and roughly coloured over the petals from side to side to give a stripy coloured texture to the leaves.  The Olive Green bullet nib was then fused for 10 seconds and each of the stamen coloured to give multiple tones.

    WoW! These flowers are amazing!! I’m off to go check out IndigoBlu as they’re new to me.

    Before I go, I’d like to ask where you announce the winners. I tried sending a private message to Facebook as I watch for the April and May winners to be announced both here, on Facebook, and in the newsletter, but they wrote back and said you’d announce them here. Did I overlook the announcements?
