Lindy’s Stamp Gang December Color Challenge



Hi everyone, today I would like to share with you all my inspiration for the December Lindy’s Stamp Gang Color Challenge mood board.


I prefer working with vibrant colors so this one was certainly a challenge for me, but I love how this project turned out!



Step 1:

I started my project by stamping one of the candles from the Create A Smile stamp set called “With Candles and Glitter” as well as two of the small holly images (each twice) from the Crealies stamp set “CLRS09 Wreath” onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Clearly Clear” embossing powder.


Now I’m ready to start my coloring: I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker in “Aged Copper” around the image, because this is my background color as well, for the candle itself I used “Stormy Silver” and for the holly and the flame I used “Antique Bronze”, in combination with water and a small brush.


After the images have dried I added in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.



Step 2:

For my background I first die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base. Onto this panel I stamped one of the sentiments from the Altenew “Holiday Wishes” stamp set using Archival “Jet Black” ink.


Next I placed my stencil of choice onto the panel (this one is TCW720s) and I applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy” Modeling Paste over the stencil using a palette knife and set aside to dry.


When dry I sprinkled on the panel some of the “Aged Copper” Magical Shaker that I mentioned before. I sprayed with water which makes teh color run and I dried with my heat tool when I liked what I had. This I repeated until I liked how dark my panel looked!


This rectangle panel I matted onto some silver mirror card stock that is slightly larger in size. I used liquid glue as my adhesive.



Step 3:

To put my card together I only have to adhere the combined rectangle panels onto a creme colored linen textured card base and than added the candle and the holly on top using one millimetre thick foam tape and liquid glue.

And that is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
