Lindys Stamp Gang new Drop Dead Diva Collection and a new Color Challenge!!
Welcome to another month of wonderful color!!! It is time for a new Lindy' Stamp Gang Color Challenge, but just as exciting, is the new addition to the already wonderful line up of colors !! Drop Dead Diva is another gorgeous collection by Limor Webber. Just imagine steely undertones of sweet silver in all of these beautiful new colors. Drop Dead Diva is simply fantastic. I have used all of the colors in this collection with the exception of the Sassy Sapphire Starburst spray. (To be used in my next project this month). I primed my 2 pieces of background paper with white and clear gesso.I layered then, then went to town on sprays and texture paste. I added a tiny bit of Magicals powder to the texture paste to color it. Quite simple I must say!!
The Dusty Attic chipboard Dream Big is from the Mini Captions #8 set. I used Lindys Obviously black Embossing powder on it. I love the coverage of the powders.
The hand rolled roses were colored with Prima Donna Purple Magicals. I just sprayed a non stick craft mat with water, dropped a tiny amount of Magicals powder into the puddle of water, mixed it up with a small paint brush and dragged the spiral cut through the color. I then dried the spiral with a heat gun until it was 90% dry and then I rolled the roses. The pink roses were painted with Hi Maintenence Magenta Magicals.
Here is a closeup of the rolled roses. You can see the edge of silver.
This is a closeup of the pink flowers. I also colored the cheese cloth under the photo using a combo of Prima Donna Purple and Hi Maintenance Magenta.
The leaves were colored with Bling-y Blonde Magcals and Drop Dead Gorgeous Green Magicals.
Here is another view of the leaves and purple flower.
You can purchase the Drop Dead Diva Mega Set which includes the Sprays and the embossing powders. This is great kit to start with.
You can also add the Magicals from the same collection. I love the Magicals as you totally control the color. You can go from very bold and rich in color to very pastel and subtle in color. It is up to you. I love the color both ways.
