Lawnscaping Challenge: One Layer Card

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.Ā 
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.Ā 
Here’s another look at the card so you can see it’s only one layer:
For all of the details on this challenge, or to link up your entry before the deadline (Wednesday, September 10th), stop by the Lawnscaping Challenge blog! And while you’re there, check out what the DT made for the challenge…there’s lots of fun, one-layer inspiration!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
