Hi Gang! It’s Cindy here and today I’d like to show you how I made this fluttery tag using Lindy’s Sprays and Embossing Powders.
I love experimenting with different techniques and be amazed by the gorgeous colors and effects you can create using Lindy’s. It’s always a surprise how a new technique turns out and it rarely ever fails.
I’ve laid down a baby wipe on my craft mat and sprayed the three different colors randomly on top of it, making sure I’ve added enough ink to saturate the baby wipe.
Then I carefully laid it on my tag and rolled my brayer over it, covering the entire tag with color. This creates a gorgeous watercolor effect.
I wanted to add a bit more color so I took a stencil and sprayed on some French Lilac Violet (Starburst) and Pop Rock Purple (Flat Fabio). To create more depth I added some Jazzy Jivin’ Purple. Because that color is a really bright and high-pigmented color I’ve used a sponge to pick the ink up from my mat so I could control the amount of ink.
I’ve used a pretty background stamp and a stitched border with Oxide ink and Archival ink. Then I stamped on some pretty mandalas with VersaMark ink and covered with the gorgeous Golden Angel Wings embossing powder. I love the effect of the iridescent and pearlescent embossing powders and love to emphasize their effect by using them on uneven colored backgrounds.
I wanted to add some butterflies and stamped them on my tag using VersaMark and Archival ink. I’ve sprinkled some Midnight Ruby Embossing powder over them and heat set it. I love the pretty dark purple glow of this powder and when you move your project you can see the beautiful purple glow changing in different light angels.
I’ve used a white gel pen to highlight the outlines of the butterflies to accentuate them and make them more notable.
And last but not last I’ve used a piece of white seambinding, soaked it in Cowabunga Copper spray and let it dry using my heat gun.
The whole tag comes together for a soft and pretty look.
It’s quite difficult to capture the effects of the pearly colored shimmer in the sprays and the changing colors of the embossing powders in a photo. So I guess you really should create this one for yourself, so you can see all those pretty effects with your own eyes ;).
