Lindy's Stamp Gang March Color Challenge

I have been having fun playing with my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and embossing powders. I made a project for the March Color Challenge

You can head over to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Blog to check it out.

The Lindy's shimmery goodness does not show up well in the pictures, but it really wows in person. 

 The idea started out as a card but transformed into a luminary using cardstock, chipboard, vellum, and of course LSG products.
Here you can see the different colors created when the battery operated tea light alternates hues. So pretty!

This project sort of took on a life of it's own. I added more and more as I went. It was fun though. I made an arched window cut file and used my own bird and flower cut files. The base is chipboard covered in white cardstock then sprayed with  I'm Late, I'm Late Slate  then spritzed with Silent Night Silver. I used a Crafter's Workshop brick stencil and applied Golden Light Modeling Paste. When the paste was dry, I brushed the Slate and Silver on the bricks with a water brush. A little watered down  Midnight Rendezvous Raven allowed me to add some shadows. I added patches of Silver Moon Turquoise embossing powder for a little more glam and depth.

I made REALLY SMALL handmade Regal Roses from white cardstock sprayed with
Alpine Ice Rose and Hibiscus Rose

The leaves and vines were also cut from white cardstock and colored with 
Green with Envy Green spray. The tiny vine and tendrils were made with cloth covered florist wire that I stained with Green with Envy Green. That cute little birdie looks great in Bachelor Button Blue.

The stained glass window is vellum sprayed with the Bachelor Button Blue, Alpine Ice Rose, Hibiscus Rose, and I'm Late, I'm Late Slate.

On the inside, I sprayed the brick stencil with the slate and laid the stencil on top like a type of stamp.
