Lindy’s Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge

Today was full of color and I was able to finish my entry for Lindy’s Stamp Gang March Challenge.  I used Flat Fabio Spray in, “C’iest la vie Cerise”, South Shore Sand, I’m Late, I’m Late Slate, and Starburst Sprays, Bit of Bubbly and Frostbitten Fushia.    I also used Angel Wings Mauve embossing powder on the panel behind the butterfly which is Sticky Back Canvas.  I created a pattern using washi tape, then applied versamark and embossing powder.  I then sprayed with the Frostbitten Fushia and distressed the edges. The butterfly and number background is the new “perspective” stamp set by Tim Holtz.

March Tim Holtz Tag 2015

Today I finished the March 2015 Tim Holtz Tag.  It uses distress paint for the background on top of some washi.  The butterfly stamp is from the new set called “Perspective”.  I heat embossed and masked it off to place the gold ferro over the tag in place of the recommended texture paste with embossing powder.  It skips several steps and I think it turns out just as nice.  I embellished the tag with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprayed ribbon in Grab a Guy Gold and some metallic gold thread my sweet friend Lynn gave to me in a care package.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #352

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  That means a $25.00 gift certificate to our random winner.  Yippee.  You have until Friday, March 20th for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:


For my card I chose a previous kit stamp from Simon Says Stamp called, “Cupcake Party”. The design paper is from Echo Park called, “Note To Self” and I created the sentiment with some of the paper using another SSS stamp set “On the Edge”.  The star die is My Favorite Things and I finished off the card with some distress inking around the edge.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
