Did you know, that today the September Color Challenge is up at Lindy's Stamp Gang? Yep!!
I started with a canvas, and drew on my flowers. Then I glued bits and pieces of lace, inside my flower shapes. As well, I added fibers, trim, braided ribbon, as my stems. The leaves are from Recollections. Once everything was dry, I added a coat of gesso, and painted my canvas white.
I used a combination of misting (Starburst Sprays & Flat Fabios) and painting (Magical Micas), on the flowers and leaves. I didn't worry too much about over spray, as I simply used a baby wipe to blot up the excess color. Once I was happy with the flowers and leaves, I turned to SS Down the Rabbitt Hole, and misted the background. Again, I used a baby wipe to blot up excess color. Then I went over the background with SS Black Orchid Silver....one of my all time faves!!......and again blotted excess color with a baby wipe. And let it dry, I'm impatient, so I used my heat tool to speed up the process.
It's very difficult to see in the photo, but the top layer on the flowers and leaves, is LSG Embossing Powder!! I took out my bottle of Boss Gloss (do they still make that?), and rubbed it over the flowers, then added various colors of LSG Embossing Powders. I went over each piece, with at least 3 different colors.
When everything was dry, I added some stamping (Kaisercraft and Tim Holtz stamps) with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. And a bit of Gesso here and there. If you look really close, you can see some smudging from the ink, because I didn't let it dry enough. I'm okay with that, as it adds character! I also used the ink around the edges of my canvas. My title is a stamp by Donna Downey/Unity Stamps.
