Hi everyone, today I’m showing you my inspiration for the Lindy’s Stamp Gang February Color Challenge mood board. I love bright colours and this colour palette is more pastel and subdued, so this was indeed a challenge for me.
This is what this month’s mood board looks like.
I started my project by stamping the “Balloon Trio” image and the “Lilly” image from Purple Onion Designs onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and clear heat embossing afterwards using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Clearly Clear” embossing powder.
Then I coloured the owl image using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical in “Milk Chocolate Brown” and the balloons in “Frenchy’s Pink Pouf”, adding layers to create shadows and highlights.
For additional highlights I added some white Gelly Roll pen and then I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.
For my background panel I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller then my card base from watercolour paper. I decided on my lay out and stamped the sentiment using Archival “Jet Black” ink (the sentiment is from the StampingBella “Tiny Townie Bree Loves Buttercream” stamp set).
Next I applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste” over a TCW stencil ( TCW5019 ) using a palette knife and set that aside to dry. This stuff dries super fast so you don’t have to wait long.
When dry I applied some of the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical in “Cocklebells Coral” onto the panel using a fan brush. Then I sprayed the powder with water which makes the colour run and I dried the panel when I liked what I had. This I repeated until the colour was as dark as I wanted it to be.
Time to put my card together: I die cut a slightly larger mat from matching purplish pink mirror 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.
Then I adhered the owl and the balloon image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my card I adhered some “Sparkling Clear Sequins” by Pretty Pink Posh using Ranger Medium Matte in the small bottle.
Lindy’s Stamp Gang products used:
- Embossing Powder: Clearly Clear;
- Magicals: Milk Chocolate Brown, Frenchy’s Pink Pouf and Cocklebells Coral.
And that’s it for today’s fun card project! I wish you a creative day!
