Lindy’s Stamp Gang October Color Challenge

4 Oct 2019

 

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!

 

 

Step 1:

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.

 

 

Step 2:

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.

 

 

Step 3:

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.

 

 

Step4:

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!
