Through the Purple Haze 1st challenge, Indigoblu

It's time for our first challenge at Through the Purple Haze challenges and I couldnt be more excited!

We have a double challenge to start with starting with Indigoblu stamps, heres my creation

This was my first time using Indigoblu stamps and I have to say they were a joy!  They are premounted so I got a lovely crisp image every time.  The set the DT got to play with was the Live, laugh, love set here.

I stamped and coloured the flowers, leaves, butterfly and dragonfly with flexmarkers and cut them out.  I made my wreath template by drawing round a plate (technical eh!) cut the centre out and got sticking! I found a channel showing my old favourite The Golden Girls so I was sticking away while I giggled through a couple of episodes of that.  My mat in the middle is Kanban and I used my flexmarkers round the edge to pull it all together. Ribbon from my stash just to hang it up.  A change of colours would see the wreath suitable for Christmas too, such versatile stamps!

Please pop along here to see what my lovely teammates have been up to and for details of the fab Christmas competition with a prize you would not believe all you have to do is enter our challenge every week until 16th December.

A big thank you to Anita and the girls for all the hard work thats gone in to setting up the challenge, we have a very exciting journey ahead of us!

Beautiful, great job. Love all the colours, must have taken a lot of episodes of The Golden Girls to make this. It is SO worth it though ;-)
