Lindys Stamp Gang 2015 August Color Challenge

 What a better way to introduce to you the newest addition to our family, than by creating a layout using some of the gorgeous colors of the Lindys Stamp Gang Color Challenge this month . Charlotte Rose. My daughter gave birth to this precious little girl on Wednesday July 28th 2015. Perfect in every way... So happy to have the gorgeous colors and even greater that it includes PINK!!!!

 I started by adhering my patterned paper to a piece of corrugated cardboard for stability. I brushed it with clear gesso to give it a good "bite" for my sprays. This prevents warping of the paper. Using a natural sea sponge and a non stick craft mat, I sprayed the mat with a couple of spritzes of water, then the Luscious Lime Flat Fabio Spray, dipped my sea sponge into the puddle and sponged some color on my background paper. I did the same with Poincianna Red Flame Starburst Spray. I then dipped a butterfly stamp into the spray and stamped a few places.

I die cut some lacy leaves from white watercolor paper then sprayed them with  Luscious Lime Flat Fabio Spray. I tucked them under the flowers.

I stamped some butterflies onto Prima patterned paper, cut them out, sprayed the bottom layer with Lindys, then layered the 2 pieces shaping the wire thread from Prima as the body, and adding the pearls on top. 

The roses were all hand rolled by cutting out spirals of white watercolor paper, spraying it with Ramblin Rose Starburst Spray and a touch of  Poincianna Red Flame Starburst Spray. 
What a gorgeous color it created.  Kind of like a deep rosy coral!! I love mixing the colors sometimes!!

The big pink flower was once a beige silk flower. I sprayed it with water, then wicked the  Poincianna Red Flame Starburst Spray with a touch of Ramblin Rose Starburst Spray while the flowers were still wet, Love the effect of the darker color towards the edges of the petals.  The open faced flowers were pink in color but I enhanced the color with the Ramblin Rose Starburst Spray.
Then dry brushed on some white gesso for a little texture.

I used some of the Prima Wire thread to frame the photo. The Dusty Attic Beautiful chipboard was primed with gesso and while it was still wet I sprayed on some  Luscious Lime Flat Fabio Spray
The 2 doilies in the background were also white and I sprayed them as well. 

Here is just another closeup of the different flowers and the other butterfly. I love creating these layered butterflies!! I have so many ideas to use different styles!!
