Hi everyone, Nancy here with a few projects. Indigo Hills is one of my current favorite collections. It's different in a good way, with a perfect mix of graphic, clean lines and florals. Here I used it to tell a story about a recent trip we took. To create this layout, I started with a square grid and just simply turned it on it's side.
The colorful blocks of patterned paper frame out the bold photo and create an interesting diamond shaped design.
The die cut pack includes many script titles that are both beautiful and functional. Here I used some pop dots to give it a little lift and layered it just over the photo.
I added some watercoloring in a light blue with Distress ink to soften the stark white background. I used the Indigo Hills stamp set to add some subtle stars just over the watercoloring.
The grid design plus some soft colors sets of this bold photo perfectly. Combining Indigo Hills with your stories is a beautiful thing! Now lets look at some cards.
I started this card with a watercolored background using Distress Ink. I used a watercolor brush and four different colors on a wet background to create this dreamy look. Once the watercolor dries, sprinkle some water and it creates this mottled look.
This card has a similar look, but it's a bit bolder. I started by stamping an image from the Late Nights stamp set and Hero Arts white embossing powder. To create the background of the ampersand stamp, I used an ink blending tool and the same colors of Distress Ink as in the first card.
The same "water splattering" technique was used, but you can see here that the ink blending gives a bolder, more saturated look to the background. The black stamped sentiment is from the Dream On Stamp Set.
Indigo Hills combines some beautiful stamped images, puffy stickers and sentiments for card making and scrapbooking!
