Blue Fern Studios and Some Sweet Color!!!

Today, I bring you 2 more projects using Ombre Dreams and wonderful chipboard from Blue Fern Studios.The Ombre Dreams papers are so versatile. Although they are all watercolor pastel colors, you can dress them up in vibrant colors and it still wont take away from the beauty of the papers. To prepare my layout, I used 2 different papers from the collection. I mounted them on cardboard after using a border punch for the paper in the middle. I saved the piece I cut out behind the middle paper and set it aside for my next project. I used molding paste and a new Prima mask for the background.

   The small BFS Circle Flourish Frame is BIG in design.There are so many different ways to adorn your chipboard. I used Lindys Stamp Gang  Flat Magicals to color all of my pieces, including my die cut leaves, and the spatters on the layout. I added a few pearls and gems to the middles of my flowers on the Circle Flourish piece. I touched it here and there with some clear crackle medium for texture. Look out for new Lindys Stamps Gang Flat Magicals. I used a gorgeous color set called Beauty School Dropout. The colors I used on the Circle Flourish are t-bird turquoise and "frenchys pink pouf." Oh my, looks like I need a dose of Grease right about now!!! Beauty School Drop Out will be available come September!!!

 For the Bohemian Butterflies, I primed them with white gesso, and after they dried, painted them with the Magicals in 2 colors. t bird-turquoise and Aloha Avacado which come from Lindys  Hawaiian Islands set which will be released July 15th. Then I just added pearls to their antennae.I used the same 2 colors on my die cut leaves.

My next project is a tag I created with the cutout pieces from my 12x12 layout above. I used 2 layers and did some machine sewing around the edges before putting them together. I use the Tim Holtz Tag and Bookplate die. The just cut the second one down 1/4 inch on each side. Once they were layered, I used gesso and a mask on the tag and did some spattering with the Flat Magicals in t-bird turquoise. I

I used one piece  from the Romantic Page Dangles Set. I just created this one simple by adding some flowers and leaves. I colored some cream colored seam binding ribbon with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays in 2 colors. I used Tiffanys Blue and Sweet Violet Purple Teal. The seam binding I use is the Hug Snug Brand. I have 4 rolls  from white to cream colored. Each roll is 100 yards... Love them!! I have an old tutorial on how to color your ribbon. How to Hand Dye Vintage Seam Binding Tutorial. 
Just substitute Lindys Sprays...

For the Romantic Page Dangle, I heat embossed it using Lindys Embossing powder in Aurora Amethyst. Then just added a few pearls to finish off the piece. I added a tiny title, "hope" and called this tag done...
