Isa's Challenge


I have been searching for a book recommended on the UK STampers Forum by Isabelle Norris and happened to come across her Blog. Isa is running a weekly alphabet challenge and I thought I might challenge myself and try this one. I'm trying to broaden my use of colours you see and this week's challenge is B for Blue. Have a look at her blog for some lovely inspiration. This is my contribution and I'm hoping its Blue enough. The peakcock is a beautiful stamp from Tanda Stamps and coloured with Big and Juicy. This is then layered onto a background made with oil pastels blended and covered with Weathered Wood distress inks(and a babywipe). I have used a clear peacock stamp and coloured it with a watercolour brush and distress inks also, and added a Hero Arts saying stamp. This is layered again onto a background coloured with Twinkling H2Os.TFL
