If nature's beauty....Lindy's Stamp Gang August 2014 Color Challenge

Look at the stunning colors in Lindy's August 2014 Color Challenge! 
Visit their blog for details....
I am so excited that I used every color Starburst Spray in this month's color challenge!  They coordinated perfectly with the photo I chose.   Along with the challenge colors listed below, I also added another Lindy's Starburst Spray "Yellow Rose of Texas" in my layout.
I also used the following embossing powders that Lindy's chose for this color challenge:
The full title of my layout is:
 'If nature's beauty on Earth is this astounding ~ Imagine what awaits us in Heaven'.   These were the words that came in my mind when I saw this breathtaking photo.

Using Lindy's Starbursts, I first spot sprayed (not blending together too much) white textured cardstock.  I achieved the look I wanted...each color separate in its own area.  I wanted each of these beautiful colors to individually stand out.
Then I die cut some butterflies; embossed them; then added stick-on pearls & bling for decoration; made the antennae and used foam squares to raise them off the page. 

 White flowers were sprayed with Lindy's Starbursts "Sweet Violet Purple Teal",
"Whale Watch Blue", "Hydrangea Blue" and "Maidenhair Fern Green".  Check out the shimmer in these sprays!  Just gorgeous! 
Lindy's Starburst spray "Yellow Rose of Texas" is such a stunning yellow! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!  Lisa : )
