June is Color Me Crazy Challenge at Petalo


Luminarte and Petaloo partnered up for their Color Me Crazy Challenge! 

So I entered this layout of my son, Cameron using Luminarte Radiant Rain mists and Radiant Rain Color Concentrate daubers plus all the flowers used in this layout are from Petaloo.The background paper is a technique that I have learned from Cathie Allan which is my absolutely favorite way to color my backgrounds with. I started off with using 130 lb super white cardstock. I used the Magenta Flower #C40239 stamp over the white paper using Lime Pastel Fluid Chalk from Clearsnap, I stamp in one general  location (may wander a bit) until there is no more ink on the stamp. I do this in odd numbers 3 or 5. Then I wand in same color using my white foam tips from Clearsnap to add some more color. Then I use the same stamp but use a different color such as Blue Lagoon Fluid Chalk shown here. I do the same technique until I have no more white paper. Then I take a background stamp( I used a Magenta bird scroll #C0577-P) and over stamp on my color paper using White Frost Pigment ink from Clearsnap. I heat set with a hot iron. I then took my Magenta Flower Frenzy TCW 157S stencil laid it on my background paper and spritz it with Luminarte Radiant Rain Sky Blue Shimmering mist and Key Lime Shimmering mist.I did this with the paper doily using those same sprays. Then I heat set it with a hot iron. I then took another piece of white paper and again colored it with the same principle as before. This time I stamped a Daisy Corner from Magenta #C09243-P using Ancient Page from Clearsnap (which is waterproof) I colored in the Daisies with a paint brush using the Luminarte Radiant Rain Sky Blue Shimmering mist and Key Lime Shimmering mist. Then I took a white foam tip and pounced using Alabaster Fluid Chalk over image to subdue it (another class from Cathie Allan). Then I used black pigment ink to stamp in between the images using the same Daisy stamp and embossed using detail black embossing powder. Again I colored in the Daisies with a paint brush using the Luminarte Radiant Rain Sky Blue Shimmering mist and Key Lime Shimmering mist. I then cut them out leaving a little halo around the image. I stamped the journal stamp from Magenta # C22056-O on the same paper using black pigment ink and embossing with black EP. I colored the flowers from Petaloo using the same colors but I diluting them with water so they wouldn't be so intense. Then I ran the flowers thru a Cuttlebug folder called Victorian. I had some Bashful Blue corduroy buttons from Stampin'Up that I colored with Teal Zircon Radiant Rain Color Concentrate dauber and used some Kiwi Kiss as well.
I matted my photo onto Royal Blue glitter paper which was layered on to a Light Blue glitter paper cut out by Spellbinder's Grand Label One. I use Chartreuse glitter paper to cut out all the Flourishes  from Sizzix Decorative Accents #7, Corner Flourish and 12" border Flourish by Quickutz. I added Rhinestones and colored pearls from E line Self-Adhesive pearls and crystals on flower centers. Added a 3/8" satin Kiwi Kiss bow as shown. The stickers came from the line called "Vita Bella by Little Yellow Bicycle.
