Autumn Wildlife - Guest Designer spot for Indigoblu challenge reminder

Thank you to the DT for selecting my bright and beautiful card in the Top 3. It means so much to receive such wonderful comments. I've been crafting for over 10 years now and my style has changed over the years. It was Jenny Marples who inspired me to create my blog although its a bit hit and miss as to when I add posts and I'm still learning. I particularly love stamping and all things IB!

Indigoblu Challenge Blog - September challenge reminder autumn

This is my take on the Autumn Wildlife theme.

I started with the background and painted Banana Custard, Burning Bonfire, Lime Marmalade, Goldfinger, White Gesso and Luscious Gold.


and stamped the large butterfly in Spiced Chai.

The leaves were also stamped with the paints and cut out. I stamped the smaller butterflies with Spiced Chai, painted and cut out but also left one on the white background.

The sentiment was stamped onto the background and a white piece of card. The word Perfect was cut out and added behind the wooden frame, same with the butterfly on white card. The background was matt and layered onto brown card and a white card blank.

Close ups below highlight the detail.

Thanks for popping by and feel free to leave a comment.

  1. A wonderful piece of work. Love how all the colours go so well together, and using the large butterfly as part of the background is inspired!
