Lindy’s Stamp Gang June Color Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!  I love the monthly Lindy’s Color Challenges and today I finished my card for the June entry.  Here are the gorgeous colors this month:

2015-june

 

I’m also entering the card in the Mixed Medial Challenge using Inks and Sprays from Challenge 1.Mixed Media Challenge

For Lindy’s challenge, I didn’t have all the colors so I used some substitute Lindy’s products.  I did have Shabby Turbine Teal, which I made into a spray by using my magical mica in that color. I did the same thing with Steel Shimmer, which is a stunning dark gray.  The other colors I used were Lindy’s Sprays in Gossamer Gold in Moon shadow Mist, Peony Scarlet Red in starburst Spray, and Scintillating Silver a glitz spritz.

I started with 140lb watercolor paper and lightly sprayed it with the above colors making sure to dry in between layers.  After spraying, I also took the cap off and flicked the color over in splats (see my recent post on splats). I then made the embellishments with white flowers and a Lindy’s Fabulous Filagree, which it looks like there are only a few left. I cut out the panel, tag, and flag shape using Simon Says Stamp dies then finished card with a Wplus9 sentiment, metal flower, twine, and recollections gems.
