The Scrapbook Store - FabScraps Vintage Elegance and Lindy's Stamp Gang March Challenge

Hi Everyone,  This month for The Scrapbook StoreI am creating with th gorgeous 'Vintage Elegance' Collection from FabScraps.  I decided to create this LO using this month's Color Challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang as inspiration.  The pink and blue tones of this range look like they were created just for this challenge!!

 Live Love Laugh
I love to create shabby chic feminine layouts, so this collection of papers is right in my wheelhouse! Pretty florals, damask and script pp's mixed with lacy chipboard and candy coloured mists... SIGH!!

All you need to do to enter is use a minimum of  2 Lindy's Stamp Gang products... (can be 2 different colours mists),  Click on the link HERE for challenge rules and details

To create my background I misted with water and applied the Blue Hawaiian Starburst Mist with a large brush for a watercolour effect.  Once dry, I flicked over the watercolour areas with Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Mist, dried this off.

I mixed the Pink Ladies Pink from the Beauty School Dropout Magical's Set with water on a non-stick craft sheet, then flicked over the watercolour areas.  I also added some flicks of the Blue Hawaiian Starburst Mist to add more dimension to the watercolour blue.  Once dry, I randomly stamped over with Kaisercraft Lattice Stamp in Watering Can Archival Ink.

I coloured the texture paste by mixing in some of the Pink Ladies Pink Magicals powder to create a gorgeous shade of pink to match my pp's.
The beautiful Dusty Attic Lacey Trims Chipboard pieces were altered by sponging with a layer of gesso and whilst Liquitex gesso is still wet, applying the Lindy's Magic Moon Pearls embossing powder, then heat setting to produce a lovely ripple effect.
The Scrapmatts Diamond Mesh Chipboard was the perfect match for the lattice in my photo of Brittany!!  I finished off by add some pretty pink seed beads for a little added texture.
