Lindy's Gang October Color Birthday Card

      Hi everybody! I hope you're staying safe and healthy! I'm here to share a mixed media card made for a Winter Birthday.

     The colors are inspired by the October Color Challenge at Lindy's Gang.

     The design is based on Sketch #247 at Feeling Sketchy.

     I started with white gesso applied to one of the Tim Holtz Mini Layered Stencil's from Set #47. Then I applied the gesso to a diecut flourish directly onto the background, and set it aside to dry. The next step was coloring the flourish with Lindy's Gang (Stormy Silver) Magical Shaker, and embossing it with LG (Queen Sheba's Silver) Embossing Powder, also used on the edges.

     The background colors started with LG Sprays (Ocean Breeze Blue and Bougainvillea Fuchsia). Once dry, I added the next layer using LG Magicals (Hi Maintenance Magenta and Guten Tag Teal) mixed with water. Snow was splattered with LG (Sidewalk Chalk) Spray, and the details of the stencil work picked up with Finnabair Metallique Wax (Brushed Iron).

     To create snow on the flowers, I added touches of white gesso, embossed with LG (Purely White) Embossing Powder, also done around the sentiment.

     Thanks for looking, and take care!
