I'm here to share a card for the new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This time we have a beautiful color board to inspire you and this is my take:






I started by making a cardbase from White cardstock and then diecut a stitched journaling card. I then diecut five rows of hearts (a perfect die that comes with the journaling card) and staped my sentiment.

I then cut strips of cardstock that I adhered to the cardbase before adhering my journaling card to my card with foam adhesive.

Make sure to pop over to the Lawn Fawnatics blog for lots of wonderful inspiration from my talented teamies and of course to play along for your chance to win 25 $ to the Lawn Fawn Store!


Supplies I used for this card:

Stamps:
Bicycle built for You

Other:
Memento Ink
Scotch foam tape
Tombow adhesive tape

Sunday Watercolor World Watercolor month day 21-22

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm sharing my prompts for day 21-22 for World Watercolor month :


# 21 Summer Colors



This one (above) is from Gotland , the island off the Swedish east coast. And Gotland simply  is summer to me (-: . 

#22 Wind in the Trees


The second one is for the prompt #22  Wind in the trees - This is a painting I made from a sketch I made while I was waiting for my dear hubby to complete his orienteering race (I had a shorter race) at Lindome, Barnsjön (Childlake (-: ) last year. 
To be honest there wasn't a lot of wind that day, but enough to qualify, dont you think (-: 
I think the prompts should be used as inspiration and to me it's been a great reason to get the things that have been in my "want to paint folder" done.


I use Winsor Newtons Artists' (- Professional as they now are called )watercolors and Daniel Smith's extra fine watercolors. The paper I use is 140lb Arches rough or fine.
I also share my watercolors and cards here:  My Instagram
