Welcome to the Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week!
All of the Summer 2016 products will be available for purchase on May 19th!
Today the Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the adorable new Dad + Me Stamp Set, coordinating dies and Stitched Mountain Dies. This sweet card would be perfect for Grandpa on Father's Day!
To create the background of the card I die cut two rectangles from watercolor cardstock using the Cross Stitched Small Rectangles Dies. From one of the rectangles I die cut a mountain border using the Stitched Mountain Dies. I applied Stormy Sky Distress Ink to the background "sky" and Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks to the mountain layer using Mini Ink Blending Tools. I spritzed the panels with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the droplets sit for about 20-30 seconds and blotted dry with a paper towel.
To build the mountain lake scene, I stamped the water from the Dad + Me Stamp Set on watercolor cardstock using Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. I blended out the ink with a paintbrush dipped in water. I stamped the rocks with Ground Espresso Ink and the grass with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I blended the images with a damp paintbrush and die cut all the scenery images with the coordinating Dad + Me Dies. I stamped the bears and hat with Ground Espresso Ink and watercolored with Gathered Twigs, Barn Door, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks before die cutting with the coordinating dies.
