Creating cards that "Shine Bright" with IndigoBlu

Hi, Connie here with a card set using "Shine Bright" by IndigoBlu.
This is a great stamp set to create with.  It has images for the focal of a 
card and images that make great backgrounds.  You will see that in the
card examples that I created.

I created these cards together.  So the first step is getting a good
 background that shines bright.  I used Infusions ( Lemoncello and Orange County) 
 by PaperArtsy to create the yellow / orange mixed media background.  In using
Infusions remember, a little goes a long ways. 

Card #1 ~
Several of the "Shine Bright" stamps were stamped on the mixed
media background.  I'm going for a messy distressed look:):)
The large light bulb stamp was used to create the focal for the card.
I used dimensional adhesive to adhere the focal image to the 
card. Infusions were used to color in the light bulb and add color to
the area around the focal image.  Twine and a sentiment were added to complete
the card front.

Card #2 ~
The focal images are stamped out, colored with Infusions and adhered
 to card front. Stamps were added to the background to give 
the mixed media distressed look (that I love). The sentiment was embossed
 and adhered to the card front.  Both cards were speckled with
white acrylic paint and twine was added .  Versafine/Onyx Black was
 the ink used to stamp out the images for both cards.
Products used:
