Indigo Blu bare forest

This is a beautiful, versatile stamp by IndigoBlu and I never get bored playing with it seeing what new looks I can achieve! 

For this christmas card, I stamped onto black card with FlitterGlu and sprinkled with glitter. As I didnt want the glitter to shed everywhere, I then covered the whole panel with Acetate to protect the glitter.

That's beautiful Gem. Good idea with the acetate covering. I would also like to recommend the 'Dust Buddy' for glitter clean ups on craft desks, it works wonders! Nicky x
