Rose Trellis Card


Hi everyone. As well as designing so many superb stamp sets, the team at IndigoBlu have sourced and developed a fantastic range of other mixed media products. Today’s card highlights Alter Ego’s, English Cottage Artist’s Acrylic paints and one of their stencils.




The base of this square 6×6 card was created by embossing white card with the Diamond stencil before inking through it with Bundled Sage Distress Ink. Using the stencil this way adds texture as well as colour and creates an instant frame to the design.



Having die cut a large leaf stem in white card, I used this as a guide to decide where to stamp some small flourishes onto the background. The A7 Dinkie Stitched Curls stamp image stayed crisp when combined with Fern Green Archival Ink.



The rose and leaf Alter Egos come from the Florals set and provide a lightweight solution to adding raised accents to your projects. They take English Cottage Artist’s Acrylic paints exceptionally well with or without a base layer. The roses were painted in Postbox Red, whilst the leaves were coated with a thick layer of White Gee-Sso Good! heat dried to bubble up, before being painted with Peppermint Tea.



The final splatters and misting were created using diluted White Gee-Sso Good and Postbox Red paint. Matting the background onto some darker coordinating card always helps to frame it and give a more professional finish.




As you can see IndigoBlu don’t just ‘do stamps’! Take a leisurely wander through the online shop to discover products that will help you take your projects to the next level.

  4. The embossed texture on the harlequins is lovely, and the pop of dimension of the flowers and leaves layered over it is so cool!
