Hi friends and welcome to Day 5 and my final day of Lawn Fawn Week!! I can't believe it has gone by already! Today I have a special collab with Christy Gets Crafty ( Christy Reuling ) - she is one of my best friends and crafty friends and I am I so happy she decided to do this with me! I will have her video linked below if you would also like to check it out!
For today's card - I wanted to do something a little different for me. I wanted to achieve two things on my card - a monochromatic look, and I wanted to get out my colored pencils. I haven't used them in LONG time!
For our collab - the theme was to use a new set along with an older set from LF. I used Our Friendship Grows as my old set ( it is one of my all time favs ) and Easter Party for my new set. I started out by creating my background onto a piece of kraft card stock. I stamped in Versamark the flowers from Our Friendship Grows, and I heat embossed them with Rose Gold Embossing Powder from LF. Then, I wanted to add some white highlights. I started out using my white gel pen, but then I pulled out my white colored pencil, and that is when I made the decision to color in my girl with the pencils too!
I love how she turned out, and I got the itch to play with my colored pencils more!! Sometime I'd like to invest in some of the Faber Castell PolyChromos pencils too. Once I was happy with my colored image, I die cut it out with the matching die, and also a white piece of cardstock using one of the Everyday Banners, and I stamped out my sentiment from Simply Sentiments. I added my girl to my banner with liquid adhesive, and added some foam adhesive all over the back of this entire piece. I die cut my background with one of the Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and then I adhere my main panel to to another piece of kraft card stock.
For the inside, I stamped out the largest flower from Our Friendship Grows in Doe ink, and another sentiment from Simply Sentiments in Plastic Flamingo ink.
Well - that's it!! This is a wrap on Lawn Fawn Week. I still have the giveaways going on - so if you havent' checked out that video - I encourage you to. Thank you so much again for Christy to join me for this collab!!
