Lindy’s Stamp Gang June Color Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!  I love the monthly Lindy’s Color Challenges and today I finished my project for the June entry.  This month I was inspired by Tamara Laporte via Women Unleashed. Here are the gorgeous colors this month:

June


For my project I used the Beauty School Dropout Magical’s set that includes, Summer Lovin’ Sun, Pink Ladies Pink, T-bird Turquoise, Kissin’ Kenieckie Coral, and Frenchy’s Pink Pouf.   Though you can’t really see it, I did add some 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.  I did mix my own colors using the Magical’s, which I love to do because it takes up less room than bottles of sprays (though I have two containers of sprays too!). After spraying, I doodled with Posca pens in black and white.  This was inspired by a fabulous teacher, Tamara Laporte so please check her out.

For Lindy’s challenge, I used Lindy’s Starburst Spray in “Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and Lindy’s Flat Fabio in Plumeria Pink and Luscious Lime.   After spraying and using a straw to move the colors, I stamped the Dina Wakely clear stamp (I got half price at Michael’s last week) in Archival Ink.  I then went a letter crazy and doodled.  I am certainly not a natural doodler but I’m taking a class with JoAnne Sharpe that has really inspired me called “Artfully Inspired Life 2016.”

Lindy’s Stamp Gang Feb 2016 Color Challenge

I was home today after spending more time in the dental chair having my 5th root canal since November so what else do you do when you’re feeling blue, but to create ART!  At least I do. So, today I worked on the February 2016, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Challenge.

02_February_2016__42231.1453916639.1280.1280

I was really inspired by the colors for this challenge and luckily, had them all already in my stash. I used Flat Fabio Spray in, “Lucious Lime” and Flat Fabio Magical “Tears on My Pillow Tangerine” and Starburst Sprays in, Delphinium Turquoise , Jazzy Jivin’ Purple, and Hottie Patottie Hot Pink.

I went clean and geometric for this card but still wanted to add a little bit of the botanical inspiration from the elephant.  To accomplish this, I added the My Favorite Things feathers, which I sprayed with Delphinium Turquoise and Luscious Lime after heat embossing with Repeat Impressions “Tumbling Hearts 1210-K”  in white powder. I then added gold and platinum embossing powders to add sparkle and shine. My flag dies are from My Favorite Things and my sentiment is Wplus9 cut from remaining colored paper.  As a final step I applied colored hearts.

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

I’m also entering the card in the Mixed Medial Challenge #18 – Add Texture.

Mixed

For the Lindy’s challenge, I used a combination of Sprays and Magical Mica’s. I began by creating the background on a piece of old cardboard which I painted with heavy body gesso.  I then applied sprays in Golden Sleigh Bells and Bucket of Blood Red and mixed up magicals to create sprays in Canna Lily Orange and Poincianna Red Flame.

Once my background was dried, I mixed up some Golden Sleigh Bells with Translucent Texture Paste and stenciled through the “Retro Tiles” stencil by Art Anthology.  I used up the remaining paste to create texture around the edges.

Now it’s on the creating the flowers.  I sprayed the flowers with Canna Lily Orange, Poincianna Red Flame, and Golden Sleigh Bells. I finished the middles with “Black Leather Jacket” Dimensional Sorbet.   I also mixed some glass bead gel by Liquitex with Poincianna Red Flame to create that vibrant red texture on the My Favorite Things Feather and edged it with more of the Black Leather Jacket Art Anthology paint.  I created the buttons by spraying Canna Lily Orange and applying Golden Sleigh Bells Magicals.  Then in the middle of the buttons, I applied hero arts gems and sealed it with Art Anthology “Splashed” which is a fabulous clear coat finish with shine.

To get some of the green in my project, I mixed Greased Lightening Green Magical with water and applied it to a Basic Grey wood stick and Maya Road tickets.

I’d say we’ve achieved some texture!

Here are the gorgeous colors this month:

Mixed Media

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!

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.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang March 2015 Color Challenge

Today I worked on the May 2015, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Challenge.

2015-may

I used Flat Fabio Magical Mica in, “Frency’s Pink Pouf”, Flat Fabio Spay in Ocean Breeze Blue, Starburst Sprays in, Silent Night Silver, and Clam Bake Beige, and Magical Mica in Hydrangea Blue.    I also used Angel Wings Mauve and Dessert Moon Turquoise Embossing Powder.

I started by spritzing and stenciling my card base with the above colors.  I used an embossing folder on the entire base and then framed it with Inca Gold in Blue.  I added some ephemera, which I put embossing powder on and colored my flowers using above sprays. The rainbow is from gold ferro and is a stencil from Simon Says Stamp.   I spritzed more color on and finished the card off with pearls on a wooden veneer piece colored with Ocean Breeze Blue.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang April Color Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!  I’ve been taking the next Exploring Art Journaling Course by Christine Urias of Scraptime.  Christine does a great job and providing some new techniques and combinations for art journaling.  Today, instead of using the technique as described with Heavy Body Gesso and Acrylics, I decided to use the Heavy Body Gesso with Lindy’s Stamp Gang products so I can enter my page into the April Color Challenge.

I started the page with a basic layer of gesso then added the heavy body gesso through a stencil and allowed it to dry.  I then applied all five of the colors with a paint brush to lay down a background.  To get the colors to mix, I sprayed them with a little water.

Lindy’s products are so versatile and I was able to combined sprays, hot shots, and magical mica’s in Pink Lady Pink Flat Fabio Spray, Tilt-a-wheel Teal Hot Shot, Summer Lovin’ Sun Magical Mica, Greased Lightnin’ Green Spray, and Magnolia Magenta Gold Spray.

Then I took all the colors again and splattered them over the entire page.  To add depth, I added Staz-on in Ganache with a foam applicator to the top and edges of the page.  The sentiment is a stencil from Dina Wakely.  I didn’t add any more because I really liked how the stencil popped with that heavy gesso.  Great technique Christine!

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.

Lindy’s Stamp Gang Color Challenge February 2015

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:
