Lindy's Stamp Gang February Colour Challenge with Manor House Creations

Hi Ladies,

Last month I took part in Lindy's Stamp Gang Colour Challenge for the 1st time.  I enjoyed it so much, that I decided to have a go at this month's striking colour challenge.

I was inspired to create this LO with the help of  Corrie's #3 and Shirel's #4  Pop and Colours #2  Workshop tutorials, and again had a lot of fun playing with mixed media techniques.

Love The Skin You're In

The background was coated with gesso.  Once dry, I misted with water, then sprayed with Tiffany Lou Blue starburst spray for a soft watercolour effect.  I didn't have the Chesire Cat Cherry starburst spray, so I mixed Autumn Maple Crimson and Cotton Candy Pink starburst sprays together which came pretty close to a match. I created the outline of the heart by using the end of the mister as a brush and used the mixed pink colour and Tibetan Poppy Teal starburst spray. After stamping and masking randomly around the heart I lightly flicked the Tibetan Poppy, mixed pink colour and Midnight Rendevous Raven.  I also used a brush to accent some of the masking with the pink spray.

Couldn't go past using flowers from the Manor House Creations Spring 2013 Collection.  The blue minuettes from the denim mix and pink flowers from the LO pack - cheeky were a perfect match for the Starburst Sprays.  To grunge up the flowers I made sure some of the flicks of Raven mist landed on the flowers.  I also altered the pink flower from the LO Pack by pulling apart the flower and using the top section, which I stamped in black with a Kaisercraft chevron stamp and topped with a recycled black fabric button.
