Lindys Stamp Gang September 2015 Color chllange

Welcome to another glorious colorful month at Lindys Stamp Gang Color Challenge!! As always, the colors are coordinated perfectly. You can use a few, you can use them all!! In this layout I only chose to eliminate the blue in the palette. (I will use it in my next project!!) I wanted a watercolor effect and hush some of the brightness on my background. To do that I used clear gesso on the background paper. When it dried, I sprayed it with water. while it was still wet, I sprayed my colors and tilted and blotter the paper until I got it until I was satisfied with the colors and coverage. I did this so that the colors in all of my handmade flowers and butterflies popped. I used the September 2015 Color Challenge MEGA Set. 

I used watercolor paper to die cut the leaves and roses and the hand cut spiral flowers. I sprayed them very slightly with water, then with the sprays and let the colors bleed. Marigold Yellow Orange Starburst Spray  and Rudolph's Nose Red Starburst Spray. On my craft mat, I sprayed a little of both colors to blend them and get a variation of different colors, Very subtle, but effective. 


 For the frame I layered a Sizzix frame die cut with Dusty Attic Chipboard to cluster my frame.I used Flourish #8 and Foliage #2 . I used gesso to prime the pieces, then used Spring leaf Chartreuse Embossing powder and heat set it.I used Byzantine Bronze embossing powder (not in the Mega Set) on the stems of the leaf vines.



The Dusty Attic title Remember Today from the Mini Captions #2 set was also primed with gesso and then heat embossed with Candy Cane Red Embossing Powder.  



This is just another closeup of the flowers and leaves. I popped some half pearls in the middles.


The butterflies were diecut and colored the same way that the flowers and leaves were colored with the exception that I did want full coverage so I just spritzed them with color and left some of the white paper show through.


I used Prima wire thread for the body of the butterflies and just glued some string pearls over them. Very simple.

So there you have it!! The Color Challenge!! Don't forget to head on over to Lindys Blog and see what the rest of the team has created using the September colors to wet your  inspirational appetite!!!!And join  us for a chance to win 1 of 5 gift certificates to the Lindys store.
