Hi everyone, today I would like to show you my inspiration for the Lindy’s Stamp Gang October Color Challenge Mood Board.
This is what this month’s mood board looks like!
To get my card project started I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller then my card base from watercolour paper. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Clearly Besotted “Some Birdie Loves You” stamp set onto this panel using Archival “Jet Black” ink. Then I temporarily adhered a The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (TCW791s) over this panel and applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy modeling paste” over the stencil using a palette knife. Carefully remove the stencil and let the modeling paste dry on it’s own.
While the modeling paste is drying I’m working on my focal points. For this I stamped several images from the same Clearly Besotted stamp set onto some Strathmore “Bristol Smooth Surface” paper and I heat embossed afterwards using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Clearly Clear” embossing powder.
Next I coloured the images using some fun Lindy’s Stamp Gang products: “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shaker, “Red Hot Poker Orange” and “Sandra Dee Sepia” Magical and “Salt Water Taffy” Spray. I added the powders to my palette (for the magicals you can use a fan brush for example) and mixed them with water to create a paint. Using a small brush I then coloured the images with this paint in combination with water (to thin down the colour)!
When the colouring is done I fussy cut the images using my Fiskars scissors.
Now that my birdies are ready and the modeling paste is dry I can further work on the background: I applied some of the Salt Water Taffy colour to my background using a brush and spraying with water, which makes the colour run. When I liked what I had I dried this with my heat tool. This I repeated several times until I was happy and then I splattered with a brush and this same colour to create a bit more texture in the background.
I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from some matching orange card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered to a creme coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape, and to finish this cute card I now only have to adhere my coloured images on top using Ranger Matte Medium in the small bottle.
I wish you a creative day!
