Lindy's Stamp Gang colour challenge!
One of my favorite manufacturers, Lindy's Stamp Gang is hosting a color challenge! I love an excuse to use lots of my favorite products! Lindy's is also having a Design Team Call (how exciting), so would like to submit this layout as part of my application.
These were the gorgeous colors for the challenge....
And here's my layout...
I started with two sheet of plain white cardstock and built up my layers of lace, gesso, washi tape, & doilies. I sprayed Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz to add heaps of white shimmer to my paper. I added color with Tiffanylou Blue , Bachelor Button Blue and Afternoon Delight Denim Starburst sprays.
Twiddleybitz chipboard pieces with gesso, and white acrylic paint, then sprayed them with Scintillating Silver Glitz Spritz. Once dry I stamped with VersaMark and embossed with Morning Glory Azure Embossing Powder. The beauty of these embossing powders is they are translucent so are affected by the color you emboss on. I achieved a soft dreamy effect over a white base, but if I had stamped with a darker ink it would have been a stronger contrast.
I die-cut a butterfly from white cardstock and painted it using Rhododendron Red Rose Starburst. I then embossed it with Terra Cotta Rust Embossing Powder whish really enhanced the color.
(Love those embossed butterflies)
The Twiddleybitz chipboard leaves were left raw (no gesso undercoat) and painted with Afternoon Delight Denim Starburst Color Shot. Just one coat, and I got this amazing depth of color and shimmer.
The large leaves were painted with Afternoon Delight Denim Starburst Color Shot, and then sprayed with Tiffanylou Blue Starburst. (My hands are also that color at the moment!)
