Stamping and painting background for Lindy's stamp gang


Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m back today with a fabulous layout created with stamping and painting techniques. For this layout, I used a simple white cardstock that I primed with clear gesso. You can use a watercolor paper too.

P1170175

Basic Process

  1. Choose your main color. I used Pineapple paradise.
  2. Create a watercolor background by adding water and ink.
  3. Use Archival black ink to stamp your leaves.
  4. Use Versamark to add some flowers and emboss with Purely white embossing powder.
  5. Paint your little flowers with another color of ink which matches your background color. (Poppin' Pink)
  6. To finish your background, paint some leaves with a detail brush and Blazing Black ink.
  7. Create some flowers and leaves die-cut on another paper and color them. (Tea Pot Purple, Poppin' Pink)
  8. You can now assemble your page
I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can watch the entire process


Here are some close-ups of my finished layout.

Textured Watercolor Background with Embossing Powder


Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a fabulous watercolor technique. Yes yes another one, haha. I’m in love with watercolor techniques! For this layout, I created a beautiful smooth texture with Lindy’s embossing powders and stamps.

It’s very simple but gives awesome results.
Don’t forget to watch my video to understand the technique properly.



P1170145

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper and choose your colors. I used Pineapple paradise, Emerald Eh!? and Banff Blue
  2. Pick your embossing powder. It’s very important to choose a pale one. The result will be more beautiful. I used Sunset Yellow Orange.
  3. Use Versamark to stamp your background. You can use different floral stamps and create a magical field of flowers. Emboss with your powder.
  4. When it’s dry and your design is complete, add one color of ink at a time. Don’t forget to add a lot of water.
  5. Sponge the excess to create a degraded textured effect.
  6. Let the color dry and give a second layer with the darker one. But not on the whole surface. Add a lot of water and sponge the excess another time.
  7. To finish, add some drops of Frozen Jack Frost spray

Here are some close-ups of my finished layout.

"Choisis le Bonheur" for Dusty Attic


Hello Dusty Attic fans! 
Valerie's here to share another layout with you with Dusty Attic products. 


I created my background with "Dusty Attic Cobblestone stencil" and the new finnabair texture paste Golden Nugget. I loveeeeee this texture paste! I added a little bit of color with Lindy's squirt and water.



 I used the word "Choisis le bonheur" of the "French Mini caption #7" and I used Finnabair wax to color it. In the engraved words, I used Nuvo mousse with a spatula.



 I used the awesome assortiment of "Cogs&Gears" that I colored with Finnabair wax and I added some texture paste Golden Nugget.




Materials used:

-Dusty Attic "Cogs&Gears"

See you soon! xx Val

Watercolor technique with layers of ink for Lindy's stamp gang

Hi Lindy’s lovers!
Valerie here and I’m coming back today with a fabulous watercolor technique with layers. This technique is very interesting with Squirts because once dry, it is permanent and therefore doesn't mix with other layers that I add.
Don't forget to watch my video to understand the technique.

P1170072

Basic Process

  1. Use watercolor paper
  2. Choose 1-3 colors of Lindy’s squirts. I used Polite People Purple , Loonie Toonie Teal and Banff Blue
  3. Add water on the section would you like to create your watercolor
  4. Add one color at a time and add lot of water
  5. Create some splatters with your ink and water
  6. Let dry without heat gun
  7. When it's dry, add another layer of ink here and there. No to much!!
  8. Add once again splatters with inks and water
  9. At the end, add some drops of Frozen Jack Frost spray
I’ve created a step-by-step video so you can watch the entire process
