This is a Mad Hatter blog hop !

I’m so happy to finally share with you more about this fantastic line from Lindy Stamp Gang. It’s been out there for a bit now. We are now introducing the Mad Hatter line from Lindy Stamp Gang.

Thanks a lot to those of you arriving here from Limor's blog.

MadHatter

There are 8 new colors in total: 4 Starburst Sprays (2-tone spray, with shimmers), 4 Flat Fabio (no shimmer), but also coordinating Embossing Powders and Glitters.

I wanted to do a spread in my Art Journal for that blog hop going on ( We also are celebrating the new ladies who entered our family. You will be so amazed at all the diversity that now composes our Design Team. Such a great amount of talent and no one does the same than the other). New blood was found during our DT call, and I am so happy with the choices that were made. We are all passionate about Lindy Stamp Gang’s products.

Here is my spread:

I started with this big stencil cleaning leftover, it was a LSG spray too but honestly I can’t remember which one exactly. I wanted it to be the focus point of the page and started from there.

I sprayed I'm Late, I'm Late Slate over the entire spread, so it would not be white anymore. It is a subtle color, so it left me plenty of room for the next stages. Once heat dried (not patient enough to wait for it to hair dry), I sprayed Cheshire Cat Cherry in a way that makes me think it is coming from that doily shape, like a falling star. I then sprayed Curiouser Chartreuse to add a bit of pop around.

The center part of the doily was feeling too empty, so I grabbed this amazing stamp set from Mama Elephant and played with several of them.

I inked the round «Love» stamp with embossing ink and then applied Midnight Sapphire embossing powder. I love how imperfect this looks, and bumpy. Dark blue and hot pink = gleeeeeee !

I first stamped long arrows with the Weeping Willow Green embossing powder. I liked the very subtle effect and that I needed to look for it to see them… but I eventually stamped shorter arrows and embossed them with Midnight Sapphire, so it will bring back the center of the doily.

I took the sprayer from the bottle of Down The Rabbit Hole Starburst, and dropped it here and there.

I wanted to try to create my own glittery medium and am so happy with how it turned out. I am not a glitter kind of girls, I love shimmers but glitters… well, not so much. However, these babied in the Mad Hatter set are scrumptious. I used Silver Moon, it is a very fine powder that once blended with gloss Gel Medium created that beautiful glittery paint I applied with my Catalyst blade over the pink trail to have a fairy dust effect (who does not need some fairy dust, right ?).

I finished my page with some quick writing (no thinking, just writing) with a Faber Castell india ink pen.
