Lawn Fawn Week Day 2

Hello, and welcome back to Day 2 of  my Lawn Fawn week!!  If you didn't catch Day 1, I encourage you to see the previous post as it explains why I decided to do this on my blog and YouTube Channel.

Today, We are headed into outer space with Beam Me Up!


I wanted to create a fun card using this set, but in a different way from other cards that I have personally seen through out the web and Instagram.  I decided to create a masked off galaxy background, and also create it directly onto my card base.  I know - pretty brave on my part as it could all go wrong quickly.  Luckily I have some very good masking tape - The "purple" tape, and it allowed me to do this in an effortless way!

I started off by doing just that - masking off a section of my white card base with that purple tape, and then I took vibrant colors of Distress Inks ( all colors listed/linked below) and took a finger dauber, and messily added the colors in circle groups within my masked area.  Once I had the color down, I added chipped sapphire and black soot to create the darkness of my galaxy.  Next, I spritzed on some water, and let it create some faded stars to the look, and I dabbed it up with my microfiber cloth.  Then, I moved on to adding my white paint splatters for the more visible stars.  This is so much fun to do, and I must say VERY addicting!!  It really brings to life a galaxy background!

Next, I created my "ground" or "planet" with more Distress inks, and made it look very distressed.  Once I was happy with this look, I set both aside to completely dry - because after all this was all done on just white card stock!  I then moved on to stamping my images I wanted to use from Beam Me Up.  I colored them in with my Copic Markers, and once complete, I die cut them out with the matching dies.

I added my party hat to the smallest alien, and then added him to his spaceship.  Once my card base was dry, I removed my masks, and revealed nice crisp edges!  So satisfying!!  I also cut down to size my planet to fit with my masked scene.  I added my other alien image and the present with liquid glue. And, for the spaceship, the fun element - an action wobbler!!  To see this in action - you can watch the video tutorial!! 
And the final step, was to add my sentiment on the inside that reads Have An Out Of This World Birthday!

  2. Leaving lawns too long between mowing is dependably a high danger of causing lawn harm when the turf is at last cut.https://howdoesyourgardenmow.com/cub-cadet-33-inch-walk-behind-mower/
