Lawnscaping FIT Team DECEMBER Blog Hop

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the final Lawnscaping FIT Team Monthly Blog Hop for 2014!  This month we are focusing and inspired by Greens and Turquoise colors!!  Thank you to Spectrum Noir for sponsoring this hop once again!!  You should have found your way to me by Isha, who is super talented!!



Here is my card for this hop!  I wanted to make something simple, but was colorful.  I chose the stamp set "Wish You Were Here" and what a perfect way to represent these colors than this stamp set.  I chose the globe image.  I wanted to have fun and do something different than just coloring in the image.  So I chose to use two colors of embossing powders - both from WOW!



I die cut a piece of PTI Stampers Select white card stock ( my favorite) and used the circle stitched die from Simon Says Stamp.  Then, I inked up my globe image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  Usually when I emboss, I use my VersaMark Ink, but I really couldn't do that for what I wanted to do, so the next best thing is the VersaMarkER - I color in the areas I wanted blue, added the blue embossing powder, heat to set with my Milwaukee Heat Tool,  and then moved on to the green areas and repeated the same process.  I set my main panel aside, and worked on my card base which is the same white card stock.  I wanted a subtle background and I absolutely love the Tiny Star background from Hero Arts.  I inked it up in Wet Cement ink from Hero Arts.  Then, I worked on my sentiment - I masked off "World" because I wanted it in green, and inked up the rest of the sentiment in my VersaFine Black ink, stamped it down, then masked off the other parts of the sentiment except "World" and stamped in in Green Hills ink, also from Hero Arts.  I wanted it to stand out a bit more, so I took my Copic Multi Liner and outlined it, and it really made it pop!  It was time to add my main focal point, so I added some foam adhesive and adhered it to my card base.

So Fun, and colorful too!!  Now, its time for me to send you off to Lenny - I am sure she has something awesome in store as well!!  Remember to leave a comment for your chance to win some products from Spectrum Noir!!  Take care and see you in the New Year!!
