:: lawnscaping watercolor challenge ::

I’ve been wanting to give the Lawnscaping Challenges a try for a while now. I love Lawn Fawn stamps and I use them all the time. I don’t know why I kept hesitating to join.  When I saw that this challenge was watercolor and I thought “I can do that!” and then, of course, I froze, lol! It took me a little while to figure out what I was doing, but I finally settled on a design I liked and went with it. I really like the way it turned out.



For the background Lawn Fawn Gingham Backdrops stamped with VersaInk and embossed with clear embossing powder. I diecut “thanks” with scripty thanks and layered it with black and white cardstock. I smooshed 3 different distressed inks –  Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberries and Peacock Feathers.

I hope you enjoy!

I made this cute little card for my nephew Jace. I haven’t seen him in a while and I thought it would be nice to send him a little something from Jeff and I and the boys. I hope he likes it!

I used Lawn Fawn’s Critters from the Past stamp set and Copic markers to color them in. I don’t have the dies yet, so I used the PixScan mat on my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. For some reason, a few of the cuts were a little off, so I trimmed them up by hand. For the background, I used the Scenic Safari and Grassy Edges dies from MFT stamps. I used Salty Ocean Distress Ink to color in the sky. I’m still practicing using the distress inks! I had so much fun putting this cute card together!
