Lindys Stamp Gang August Color Chllenge.

 It is August already. That means another wonderful Color Challenge at Lindys Stamp Gang..The colors this month are simply divine!!! 
The colors included in this Special Edition set are the following: 
Hydrangea Blue
Maidenhair Fern Green
Wild Honeysuckle Coral
Sweet Violet Purple Teal
Whale Watch Blue

Here is my layout using the Special Edition Color Challenge Mega set. I found the photo of the dragonfly on Tumblr and thought the colors were a perfect match!! I used Blue Fern Studios paper collection Ombre Dreams. Lindy's colors this month are once again a perfect match!! I masked the background with texture paste. I sprayed some Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst  Spray into the texture paste before applying it to the paper. Then I randomly sprayed and splashed Hydrangea Blue.

For the Blue Fern Studios Chipboard, I primed it in white gesso, when it was dry, I used the Embossing powder in Maidenhair Fern Green. Once it was heat embossed I splashed  little Hydrangea Blue on it as well.

For the stamped dragonfly, I fussy cut it out and I  used a variety of the sprays from the set.

 I inked the edges of the tags and sprayed some of the flowers to enhance the colors. I heat embossed some of my leafy die cuts s well with the Maidenhair Fern Green.

For the Blue Fern Studios Chipboard Lace Heart Border, I primed it with gesso and after it dried heat embossed it with the  Maidenhair Fern Green.

 Here is the other dragonfly on my page. This is an older Tim Holtz Stampers anonymous stamp set, but one of my faves. I stamped 2 of them for each dragonfly, and I just cut off the head and body off of one, and layered just the wings for the double layered effect.
