Frame It : IndigoBlu Blog Challenge

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

Beautiful frame for my dining room
I've had some fun playing with paints today, and mixed up some IndigoBlu paints to match the chimney breast in my dining room.

This lovely little frame is very ornate, and I liked it plain, however, that's no I've given it an IndigoBlu makeover!

I cut down some card to the same size as the glass and stamped with the Dragonfly Dinkie stamp.

The frame was given an undercoat using Pantry White English Cottage Acrylic paint and then I mixed up Wimberry Pie and Iced Gem with Cinderella Metallic paint to get this shade of purple. Left to dry - with all the little nooks and crannies in the frame, some paint may gather and take longer to dry. This needs to be dry for the next step - as the Flitterglu is water soluble and although there is no water in these amazing paints, it will not adhere to the frame if the paint is wet. (you can speed up the process with a heat gun).

Next step was to use IndigoBlu Flitterglu on some Phat foam and randomly add, gently, to the frame. Gently, as I wanted it only to be added to raised areas of the pattern. I used IndigoBlu Mega Flake in Chocolate Box.

Put it all together, and this is a lovely addition to the sideboard in my dining room!

I hope you like my little piece of IndigoBlu art, good luck with the challenge! Click here to go back to the Indigoblu Blog Challenge Post
