Lindy's Stamp Gang Design Team Call - July Colour Challenge!

Lindy's Stamp Gang DT Call
July Colour Challenge
 
Hello Everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog today! I would like to share with you my entry into the Lindy's Stamp Gang Design Team Call. You can of course find their wonderful site here:
You can find all the great products I have used there along with  a wide variety of other sprays, embossing powders, stamps, tools and more! So please do go check out their site, you will be amazed at the quality and selection!
 We were to enter the July colour challenge, which you can find here:
Every month they will be having a fun colour challenge on their blog, so definitely go check it out and have some fun and make some new friends!
 
This is my altered Alice in Wonderland Clock I have created for the July colour challenge
the Lindy's I have used for this are:
Frozen Jack Frost  Delphinium Turquoise  Scintillating Silver  Carpathian Blue Bells and Afternoon Delight Denim you can have a peek at them and the other gorgeous sprays here:
 
I started with a background of white acrylic paint, then used a Prima mask and some modelling paste with a Harlequin design on it and then I started to layer my Lindy's sprays, beginning with the darkest colour first, which was the Afternoon Delight Denim. I applied each coat of the sprays, drying each one in between, I even used some droplets directly from the spray bottle to give more of a shabby paint look, it turned out great!
The top of the clock features some beautiful flowers and even a quote from Alice in Wonderland entitled "Down the Rabbit Hole" which you can see below.


Here you can see the texture and the amazing look the sprays give when layered on top of each other.
This wooden teapot was also kissed by Lindy's! It was plain wood, and I painted it white and got out my Prima mask with the pocket watch on it, and used some of my modelling paste, to make it stand out. I used Carpathian Bluebells http://www.lindystampgang.com/products/Carpathian-Bluebells.html  on top of the teapot and a bit of Scintillating Silver as well
you can see the Mad Hatter there with his cup all ready for some nice fresh tea!

Here I haved used the Carpathian Bluebells again, and this time I sprayed my white mulberry flowers with it and I just love how they have come out! This colour is just stunning, it also gives a bit of a silvery shimmer to it as well, so the flowers look so unique when you spray them!


Here is the clock itself, and I have lightly sprayed some Scintillating Silver in the background around this vintage photo of Alice and her friends.
here you can see more of the gorgeous background technique I created using the Lindy's Sprays.



This is the side view of the clock, you can see how I let some of the sprays just drip and run down the side, I love that effect, these sprays are so versatile!

And here is Alice with the Queen of Hearts, she is much larger here as this is after she drank her potion! You can see more of the beautiful flowers I sprayed here as well.

This is the top of the clock, and here I opened up the Lindy's Sprays and just added some droplets to the top of the clock and I love the effect it gives, its wonderful to play with them, it really inspires my creativity!



 
 Again here are more of the flowers I have sprayed, I just cant get enough of this look, and the wonderful thing about this is now I usually only buy white flowers, so I can play with my Lindy's sprays and make what ever colour I need to suit what ever project I am working on, how cool is that?!

So this is my project for the Lindy's Stamp Gang DT call. I really hope that you like it! I had so much fun making it. I so enjoy working with the Lindy's products and It would be a total thrill to be chosen for the DT, so fingers crossed!! Thank you all so much for taking a peek at my clock today. Please feel free to leave a message or subscribe, I love to hear from you!
