Welcome to the February Inspiration and Release Week!
I hope you all have enjoyed the last few days as much as I have! Tomorrow the Lawn Fawn Release goes LIVE! Yay!
The Lawn Fawn Mom + Me Stamp Set and coordinating dies is one of my most favorites from the new release. Cute critters that are great for not only moms and grandmas but for all sort of occasions that call for using cute critters! Keeping with my promise to incorporate more forms of coloring other than Copic Markers, today's sweet images were stamped and/or colored with Distress Inks and Markers! I love the soft look watercoloring gives these no-line colored images.
To create the background of my card, I die cut a Stitched Square Frame from watercolor cardstock twice. From one of the "inside" square pieces I die cut a hillside using one of the new Simple Stitched Hillside Borders Dies.
I added a blue "sky" to the inside square and part of the frame using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I applied Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Inks to the landscape and part of the frame and then spritzed all of it with water from a Distress Sprayer. I let the water droplets sit for about 30 seconds and then blotted the pieces dry with a paper towel.
I stamped the grass from the Mom + Me Stamp Set on watercolor cardstock using a combination of Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks and blending out any areas that didn't stamp clearly with a paintbrush dipped in water.
I stamped the greeting from the Mom + Me Stamp Set on the landscape border using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I adhered the inside scene and frame to a top fold card base trimmed down to 4 1/4" square.
