Lindy's Stamp Gang July Color Challenge

Are you ready for some mixed media inspiration? I hope so, because I've got a canvas to share as well as a video tutorial on my background technique. To be quite honest,  I decided to make the video after my canvas was completely finished - and of course no two projects ever turn out the same, but at least you can learn the techniques that I used.

I saw that Lindy's Stamp Gang was having a Color Challenge - and I was so excited, because I've loved their products for several years now - from the first time I tried them. So here was this month's palate - not my normal colors, but really fun!

Then, before I even had a chance to play along, they really sweetened the pot, by announcing they were having a design team call!  Now my mind started churning with ideas of sparkly, spritzy things, and I decided to make a canvas.

I hope you enjoy my video and find some helpful tips.  For the finished project, I added some Dusty Attic Chipboard - that I spritzed and embossed, and handmade paper flowers created with Cheery Lynn Designs Sweet Williams Flower Strip die.  After the flowers were shaped and assembled, I dipped them in melted embossing powder.
