Hi everyone, today I’m showing you my card project for the Lindy’s Stamp Gang August Color Challenge Mood Board. The sweet pink colour in the mood board made me think of cherry blossoms but going through my stamp sets I eventually choose some tulip like flower shapes.
This is what this month’s mood board looks like!
To get started I stamped some flower and leaf images from the Simon Says Stamp stamp set called “Spring Flowers” 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 images using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays in “Clam Bake Beige”, “Cotton Candy Pink” and “Azure Sea Asters” in combination with a small brush and water.
When the colouring was done I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.
For my background panel I die cut a piece of watercolour paper to the right size (two sizes smaller then my card base) and stamped a sentiment on this panel using Archival “Jet Black” ink. Then I applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste” over a The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (TCW450s) using a palette knife and set that aside to dry.
When dry I added the blue colour that I used before to the background with a brush and sprayed with water to make the colour move. This way I have more control over the colour then spraying the colour directly onto the paper. This I repeated several times, until I liked what I have, drying in between layers using my heat tool.
To finish the background I splattered onto this background using the brown colour that I used before and a brush.
Then I die cut a slightly larger panel from some matching pink card stock, adhered both panels together using liquid glue and then adhered these combined panels to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.
To finish this card I now only have to adhere the flower and leaf images on top using liquid glue and one millimetre thick foam tape.
And that’s it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
