Hi, everybody! Hope you are having a good week so far! I’m playing along with the current Lawnscaping challenge, which is to make a one-layer card.
My order with the new Lawn Fawn stamp sets came in yesterday, so I started playing with them! As you’ve probably noticed with other cards I make, one of my favorite techniques is creating a scene with masking, which is perfect for this challenge!
Except for the grass stamp, all of the stamps I used are from the brand-new “Spooktacular” set. You’ll find the grass stamp in “Critters at the Dog Park“.
I created the background by masking off all the stamped images and sponging on a few shades of purple ink. Then, I colored the images and heat-embossed the sentiment.
I would have liked the embossing to be sharper, but that’s my fault…I didn’t let the background ink dry long enough. I think that I’ll stamp the sentiment before creating the background when I try this technique again.
Here’s another look at the card so you can see it’s only one layer:
