Or not so blue Monday as here in the UK it is a Bank Holiday 🙂 However, it is still Monday and so time for a new word to play with at Every Inchie Monday. This week it is indigo. Indigo is one of those mysterious colours. As I child, I would ask for a definition only be told “Well, it’s not exactly blue and it’s not purple, it’s somewhere in between.” Not much help if you’re a seven year old whose current obsession is drawing rainbows. Leaving aside the rainbow connection indigo is also used in the context of ink and denim jeans. I’ve decided to use the latter as the marker I would use when making my little collection of inchies for this week.
The indigo colour was made by layering three different blue Promarkers, starting with the lightest colour, and then using a blending pen over the top. The first two inchies give a very definite nod to denim.
I made a little pocket and then a tiny pair of jeans. I used a white pen for the stitching and then went over the top with an orange glitter gel pen. The little stud on the pocket is a blob of platinum Stickles.
The next inchie is my transition inchie. I’ve used some Chipped Sapphire to stamp the book page Star, a stamp by Stampotique, and added the stitching as before.
The final bunch are just simple stamping. I’ve used a butterfly stamp and Chipped Sapphire.
Enjoy your day and thanks for buzzing by.
