Lindy’s Stamp Gang July Color Challenge w/Technique Junkies

Hello Crafty Friends!  I love the monthly Lindy’s Color Challenges and today I finished my card for the July entry.  For this month I’ve combined the Lindy’s Challenge with Technique Junkies stamps because Pat is offering 15% off all July Release Stamps.

Here are the gorgeous colors this month:

2015-july

I’m also entering the card in the Mixed Medial Challenge #14 – Summer Days.

For Lindy’s challenge, I used a combination of Sprays, Magical Mica, and Hot Shot’s. I began by mixing Bonjour Butter Flat Hot Shot with water to create a spray. I did the same with Peony Scarlet Red Magical Mica.  I then sprayed the background with the Bonjour Butter, Blue Hawaiian Blue Starburst, and Aloha Avocado Flat Spray.  I then splattered the Peony Scarlet Red and Dark Chocolate Truffle Starburst Spray and stamped Technique Junkies “Faint Scratches” in both white and gray.

I then sprayed more Peony Scarlet Red on my craft mat and then “stamped” the Technique Junkies “Here We Go Round in Circles” into the spray and applied to card base.  Over that I stamped more circles with Hero Arts Black ink and embellished with Signo Uniball White pen (my favorite).  I created the clouds using an My Favorite Things die spraying with Aloha Avocado, Bonjour Butter, and Dark Chocolate Truffle then embossed with a Paper Studio folder and inked with Distress ink in Gathered Twigs.

I then stamped the new July Release stamp from Technique Junkies called, “Life is a Song” and cut out leaves from canvas using WPlus9 die.   The entire project was sealed with Collage Pauge in Matte then I took a Faber Castell Pitt pen in brown and edged the dies helping them sink into the card.  I finished off by cutting the whole thing out using a Simon Says Stamp stitched die.

Hope you are enjoying the 4th of July and spend quality time with your friends and family!
