Hi there Lindy’s lovers, it’s Tracy on the blog today and I have created two tags for my June Design Team Project for Lindy’s Gang that were inspired by some new Caravelle Studio Stamps and my new favorite Lindy’s Starburst Spray, Periwinkle Penguin, from the Arctic Adventure Starburst Spray set designed by Olga Ravenskaya.
I’ll walk you through how I put these together…
Step 1: Background Layer #1, Embossing
I used a new stamp from AAll & Create and with Clear Embossing Ink from WOW! and Stamped the image onto several areas of both tags. I sprinkled on 🎨 Angel Wings Peacock Embossing Powder from Lindy’s and Heat Set. (This EP has an opal quality with a blue undertone that is so gorgeous!)
Step 2: Background Layer #2, Stenciling
I added a layer of Flexible Modeling Paste from Liquitex through a Stencil from StencilGirl_Products with a palette knife over several areas of both tags, intentionally highlighting some white space and the embossing. Let Dry.
Step 3: Color your Background
I started by spraying 🎨 Tea Pot Purple Starburst Spray, leaving a few white areas open. I next grabbed 🎨 Bluebeard Blue Violet Moon Shadow Mist and concentrated this over and around the Stenciling to achieve a pretty/grungy look. I repeated this a few times until I achieved just the right depth of colors. And, while I was at it, also sprayed 2 Paper Roses Studio brick Die Cuts and Let Dry.
Step 4: Emboss and Color Chipboard
After Gessoing 2 Chipboard Ornaments from Stencil1, I sponged Clear Embossing Ink through a Stencil from ABStudio, sprinkled the same Lindy’s 🎨 Angel Wings Peacock EP and Heat Embossed. Ink the edges with Distress Ink to frame.
Step 5: Color Embossed Chipboard
Using 2 of the 3 Sprays, 🎨 Penguin Play Periwinkle and 🎨 Bluebeard Blue Violet, I sprayed areas on the chipboard with both colors in several passes, wanting this to have a heavier Periwinkle look to contrast the background of the tags.
Step 6: Color your Die Cuts
I pulled out some paper Die Cuts from Anna Griffin, (they gave me an iron fence vibe that paired with the brick nicely) and sprayed them with 🎨Screamin’ Banshee Black Shimmer Spray and Embossed most areas with 🎨 Boogie Down Black EP. The alphabet set from Alexandra Renke was sprayed mostly with 🎨Tea Pot Purple, with dribbles of 🎨 Penguin Play Perwinkle. I used 🎨 Hibiscus Rose Orange EP over all my letters and Heat Set. After edging the letters, I splattered some Golden Irredescent Pearl Acrylic Splatters along with some 🎨 Lindy’s Black Splatters.
Step 7: Stamp and Color your Focal Points
These two Stamps from Carabelle Studio were stamped onto watercolor paper with Staz On Black Ink. I used a small detail brush to paint the images with the following Lindy’s Sprays: (lady bug) 🎨 Steampunk Sepia, 🎨 Sweet Violet Purple Teal and 🎨 Rizzo’s Rowdy Red Flat Fabio. (butterfly) 🎨 Steampunk Sepia, 🎨 Penguin Play Periwinkle and 🎨 Time Travel Teal. Both critters were Embossed with Angel Wings Gold EP for a golden translucent sheen and I then added a small brad to attach the ladybug’s wing.
Step 8: Assemble!
I added some fan brush splatters of Golden Irredescent Pearl Paint diluted with water to the Iron Gate Die Cuts and assembled all the elements, gluing down one layer at a time. I hole punched the tags, added a reinforcement and added ribbons. I ultimately ended up putting both tags on a simple background of washi tape and embossed dots in an altered book art journal layout, cause that’s what I do 😉
Stay Inspired and Thanks for Dropping by!,
