Hey crafty friends!
I have been totally loving the Lawn Fawn challenges over at Lawn Fawnatics lately! This week’s challenge is ‘happy critters‘ which is a dream for any Lawn Fawn fan. There are so many to choose from!
For my card, I decided to go with a nautical theme. I started off my ink blending a white piece of card stock using Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, and Peacock Feathers. I love how you can get this gorgeous rainbow with only three colors!
After I finished my ink blending, I used the Distress Splatter Brush and some clean water to add some fun interest to my card panel. Then, I got busy stamping out all the cute critters for my scene.
I chose critters from several different sets to pull this card together. I stamped them all out, then colored them up using Copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating Dies to cut them all out.
I arranged everything where I wanted on my background and then (for the first time!) used Press n Seal to pick them all up while maintaining their placement. I put glue on the back and flipped the whole group back on to my panel. How cool is that!? This was such a huge time saver.
I added a piece of vellum over my water portion and then added a few clear droplets and sequins. I also cut a strip of black card stock and heat embossed the sentiment ‘waving hello’ in white. I love how the black really makes the blended background pop.
Be sure to check out the challenge before it ends! You should make a project, too. I’d love to see what you’re creating, so feel free to tag me on social media (@acarddayswork)!
