LawnFawnatics Challenge # 114 Card Sketch

Hi Everyone!
I'm here to share a card for the new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This time we have a fun sketch and this is my take:




I started by making a cardbase and then inked a panel of white cardstock I used pink and blue distress ink. I then spattered my panel with water to create texture before cutting puffy stars at a set pattern to create my even more textured bg. Last I added my bird and sentiment strip.

Lawn Fawn Holiday Inspiration Week

 Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to be part of the FawnyHolidayWeek on the Lawn Fawn Blog 




I absolutely LOVE the LIFT THE FLAP TREE BACKDROP and how beautiful it is and also how fun and creative you can be with it. Here I wasn't very creative, I just used it as a beautiful bg for my Gnome scene. I inked my bg and added the diecut tree bg. I used rough watercolor paper to get some texture and added distress ink to make them look round. After I had adhered everything to my panel I spattered it with white gouach to create the look of snowfall. I then diecut and colored the sweet gnome and added him to my card with foam adhesive.

FawnyHolidayWeek 2 Happy Howlidays

 Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to be part of the FawnyHolidayWeek on the Lawn Fawn Blog 









This card is super easy to make! I started by cutting a cardbase and then a strip of blue and silver snowflake paper that I inked using distress ink. I adhered the strip to the top part of the card and then cut another strip panel - this time from white cardstock. I stamped my sentiment , added the panel of white cardstock to the bottom half of the card as snow ground. I stamped and colored images and added glossy accent to the lightbulbs. I then added my images to my card with foam adhesive.
