I have been buying Lindy’s Stamp Gang products for over 10 years now and I love them as much today as I did when I got my first “moon shadows”. This months color scheme for the Lindy’s February 2015 Color Challenge is very vibrant so instead of doing full sprays on my card, I spattered. I stenciled the heart using 3D molding paste mixed with Black Orchid Black magical mica (I think this is discontinued as I couldn’t find in the store). This isn’t the black that was called for in the challenge, but it was the only color I didn’t have on hand out of the 5 chosen, so I improvised. I then splattered Caribbean Blue Flat Fabio, Bougainvillea Fuchsia Starburst, Pretty in Pink Pink Starburst, and Frozen Jack Frost making sure to dry in between each layer. That helps so the colors don’t muddy. I also created my own stencil mask using the Simon Says Stamp “Clustered Leaf Die”. I based my design on the Freshly Made sketch below.
Here is the color palette:
It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for a color challenge at The House that Stamps Built. With Valentines looming around the corner, this weeks challenge will help you get your cards made for those you love. The Challenge is open through Tuesday, February 10th and there is a $25.00 prize for our random winner. You don’t have to use Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you do, an extra entry is waiting for you.
Now let’s get started with the colors we choose this week:
For some inspiration I broke out my Kuretake watercolor paints, which I applied liberally after I white heat embossed the Hugs & Kisses Stencil 1215-H. I added some black splats and finished it off with some sequins. I can’t wait to see what you come up with in your color challenge for What If Wednesday at The House that Stamps Built
