LSC #86 Watercoloring

Hello fans of Lawnscaping!  Welcome back to another new challenge!  We are focusing on the more than ever popular water coloring!  Do you like to water color?  For some it may be new, intimidating, or your favorite technique - either way - we'd like to see what you'd create!

Our sponsor is the super awesome Lawn Fawn!!  How awesome is that!?  Here is what I came up with for my project featuring water color.



I used the adorable mini set "Get Well Soon" by Lawn Fawn - I thought it would be cute and different to use the little band aid and spell out " Hi".  I used some of the Tim Holtz Water color paper and stamped all of my images in Staz On Ink since I was water coloring, and it is a water proof ink. I used Distress Inks to water color my background and birdie image.  I used Evergreen Bough, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick.  After I did my water coloring, and once it was dry, I die cut my piece with one of my Sizzix Circles Dies.  I thought the edge of the circle needed a bit of definition, so I added a bit of Black Soot to the edge, and it makes it stand out better against the Lawn Fawn card base I used - these are the Lawn Fawndamentals notecards - they are a 4 bar size which is 3 1/3 X 4 7/8. 
I added some Wink of Stella to my bird, and my "Hi" and added some glossy accents to the band aids.
Here is a closer look


Hopefully this card would perk any one up that was feeling under the weather :)  Be sure and play along!! There is a great prize to be won by Lawn Fawn!
See you soon!

You're Pretty Amazing! ( video tutorial)

Hi everyone!! Today's card I wanted to dive into the over run collection I have of washi tape! I have a lot of rolls of this stuff, and sadly I don't use it nearly enough as I should, so I wanted to break some out and make a colorful card with it! I love to link to the exact rolls I used, but I bought these at Michael's - they are the Recollection brand, but you can use what ever patterns, and colors you have on hand for this very card! Of course too, I couldn't avoid using my oh so loved Femme Frames from Mama Elephant. Maybe that should be a crafty challenge within itself for me...I should try to make a card WITHOUT using these frames!! HAHA! Anyhoo! - I have the below on just how I made this card! I hope you enjoy! And, if you are not yet subscribed to my  YouTube Channel, I invite you to to subscribe!  Anytime that I upload a new video, you will know as soon as it publishes!
