Lindys Stamp Gang April 2016 Color Challenge/layout by Lisa Gregory

Hello there Lindy's Lovers! The April Color Challenge is in full swing and I have a layout I did using 4 of the colors from the Mega Set. I adhered a piece of 12x12 patterned paper to a 12x12 piece of corrugated cardboard and painted a light white wash of gesso over the entire surface. For texture, I used a mask and texture paste on random areas and let it dry. Then I spritzed on some water and while it was still wet, sprayed Cheshire Cat Cherry (starburst), Mango Mania (Flat Fabio), Frenchy's Pink Pouf (Flat Fabio) and Cotton Candy Pink (starburst) in random areas. Then  the layering began...


I found some pretty white flowers in my stash that I ordered online some time ago. They are just basic silk flowers used for fillers in bouquets. I cut off the stems and sprayed them with Cheshire Cat Cherry (starburst), Mango Mania (Flat Fabio), Frenchy's Pink Pouf (Flat Fabio) and Cotton Candy Pink (starburst). I love the way the Mango Mania pooled to the edges. The dragonflies were found online and matched the colors perfectly. I printed them up on photo paper and added a bit of Cheshire Cat Cherry (starburst).


Here is a closeup of the flowers. The leaves were die cut from watercolor paper and sprayed with Merry Go Round Green (Flat Fabio) and a small amount of Mango mania (Flat Fabio) was brushed on to highlight. The smaller flowers were also die cut from watercolor paper and sprayed with with Mango mania (Flat Fabio), Frenchy's Pink Pouf (Flat Fabio) and Cotton Candy Pink (starburst) to match the larger flowers.


The frame is a die ut and was primed with a white crackle paint. Once the crackle set, it was sprayed with Merry Go Round Green (Flat Fabio) and the color settled into the cracks beautifully.


The title "angel" was primed with crackle paint and once the crackle appeared it was sprayed with Cheshire Cat Cherry (starburst) which also settled into the cracks. I also die cut the distressed lattice and sprayed it with Merry Go Round Green (Flat Fabio) before adhering it to the background.


I uploaded a butterfly from my files, enlarged it, printed it up, and colored it with Mango mania (Flat Fabio), Frenchy's Pink Pouf (Flat Fabio) and Cotton Candy Pink (starburst). I placed it behind the frame.
