This layout was inspired by the Lindy's Stamp Gang April Colour Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for this week which was "Make Your Own Background".
|Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge|
These are the Lindy's Stamp Gang products I used:
I mixed Hibiscus Rose and Danny Zuko's Denim to make a purple resembling the Magnolia Magenta Gold from the colour challenge graphic and used the Twinkling Tinsel to add a bit of shimmer to the background.
The textured background was created with molding paste and stencils on white paper (Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper). I misted the background and dripped the different colours overtop, misting with water again to make the colours spread more. I used just a hint of Summer Lovin' Sun around the edges with the Greased Lightning Green.
The chipboard pieces are all from Blue Fern Studios:
The frame was painted with Viva Decor Ferro Metal Effect colour in Gold Iron. I added touches of pink paint, Distress Stickles in Victorian Velvet and green microbeads and then dry-brushed lightly over the top with white paint.
I used white Viva Decor crackle paint over a green basecoat for the flourish and then painted it with the Greased Lightning Green spray.
I had cut the blooming foliage piece to use in my previous layout and used a couple of the leftover pieces for this one. I painted them and applied distress stickle to the leaves and berries.
I also did some random border stamping with green ink around the edges of the layout and some stamping with brown ink with texture stamps.
