Picture Perfect...Lindys Stamp Gang November 2015 Color Challenge

Welcome to the Lindy's Stamp Gang November 2015 Color Challenge. Autumn is my favorite season because of the colors. In Florida we don't have those gorgeous golden warm fall colors during Autumn, so I often create them in my projects. Grab a hot cup of something and cruise through this post.
I layered 2 pieces of patterned paper onto a piece of corrugated cardboard using Mod Podge and a foam brush. I distressed the edges before I mounted them. I brushed the entire background with gel medium. I used a Prima doily mask and Art Basics crackle texture paste, then after it dried, I randomly sprayed  Canna Lily Burnt Orange and Golden Sleigh Bells onto the paper blotting it for a softer feel. I let some of it drip by tilting the paper.

over the Prima flowers. It changed the colors perfectly. 

I used Dusty Attic chipboard to compliment the layered matting for the photo. I primed it with white gesso then  heat embossed it with Kaiser Russet Red.

Here is a closer look at the flowers. Each one was sprayed with a different color for variety.

And the flowers on the other side of the layout. I really love the golden yellow color. And you can see the shimmer of the gold on the leaves.

The die cut leaves were sprayed with  Greased Lightning Green Flat Fabio spray, and because I like a bit of shimmer, I added a light spritz of  Golden Sleigh Bells. This made the leaves shimmer.

I layered the photo mats using corrugated cardboard in between each mat. I also mounted each mat onto corrugated cardboard for dimension. I edged the mats using the wand of the spray bottle to apply the color. The distressed edges soaked up the sprays beautifully.

The Dusty Attic word Picture Perfect was heat embossed with Holly Berry Red Gold and a sprinkle of  Kaiser Russet Red embossing powder. I love that you can mix some of the powders for a great color effect.

Lindys colors are so true to life when it comes to coloring your botanicals. The possibilities are endless. I just love the intensity and shimmer of the colors. Even your Flat Fabios can be transformed into a shimmery color with just a coat of Glitz Spray, but I will leave that for another post!!

Thank you for joining me this week. Now I hope you join us for the Color challenge this month for a chance to win  1 of 5 $50 Gift Certificates to the Lindy's Store! That]s a lot of Lindy]s love!!
