Lindy’s Stamp Gang November Color Challenge

Hi everyone, today I’m showing you my inspiration for the Lindy’s Stamp Gang November Color Challenge mood board. I felt like creating a Christmas card and this how I went about it!

This is what this month’s mood board looks like:

Step 1:

I started by stamping the images I needed onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and clear heat embossing afterwards using Lindy’s Stamp “Clearly Clear” embossing powder. The stamp set I used is by Altenew (“Persian Motifs”).

Next I coloured around the stamped image with the background colour that I will use on my card: for this I added some of the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical in “Opal Sea Oats” onto my palette (you can use a fan brush for this) and than I added water, creating a watercolour paint. Using a small brush I painted the area around the stamped images and let that dry. When dry I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.

Step 2:

Then I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller then my card base from some watercolour paper. I put this panel in my MISTI stamping tool and also added the stamped and fussy cut images the way I liked it best.

Now that I know where my images go I added the sentiment to the rectangle panel. For this I used one of the sentiments from the Clearly Besotted “Christmas Type” stamp set and some Archival Ink in “Jet Black”.

Step 3:

Now that my sentiment is added I can create my background pattern using a The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (TCW854s) and some The Crafter’s Workshop (white) Modeling Paste applied with a palette knife. This I let dry on its own.

Step 4:

While the modeling paste is drying I’m colouring the stamped and fussy cut images using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals in “Luscious Lime” and “Time Travel Teal” in combination with a small brush and water

When the colouring is done and dry I added some highlights using a white Gelly Roll Pen.

Step 4:

Now that the modeling paste is dry I can add colour to this panel using the previously mentioned “Opal Sea Oats” colour. I add the powder to my project using a fan brush, then I spray with water, which makes the colour run. When I like what I have I dry my panel with a heat tool. I don’t work on the entire panel all at once. Working on smaller area’s makes it able for you to control the colour better.

I totally love the subtle shimmer of this “Opal Sea Oats” colour!

Then I splattered with some of the left over green mixture for some added interesting details in the background of my project.

Step 5:

Now that most of my elements are ready I can put my card together. I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from some matching turquoise coloured card stock and then adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. Next I added my stamped and coloured images, adhering them with one millimetre thick foam tape. And this combination I added to my white card base also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that’s it for today’s fun Christmas card project. I wish you a creative day!
