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 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 December Color Challenge: Card 2

I spent this lovely Sunday morning playing with my Lindy’s Stamp Gang products.  I used the December color challenge as a starting point to create two different cards that I will post separately for entry purposes.  The Sprays I used were Opal Sea Oats, Tibetan Poppy Teal, and Azure Sea Asters.  The magical Mica’s used were Rizzo’s Rowdy Red and T-Bird Turquoise.   I also used Lindy’s Midnight Teal embossing powder over the heart charm, also from Lindy’s.  The background also has Molding Cream by Viva Decor in pearl used with stencils, some I Am Roses flowers colored with the above colors and some Tim Holtz embellishments and ribbon.  The red hearts are cut from a Simon Says Stamp heart die using grunge paper and colored with Gesso and Rizzo’s Rowdy Red Magical.
