It’s my Lawnscaping post day!

Hi, everybody! It’s my turn to post today at the Lawnscaping challenge blog and I’m sharing some cards that I made recently.  Since the current challenge is to add dimension to your card, I challenged myself to come up with alternate ideas for adding dimension without using foam tape or a lot of layers.

My first card uses Lawn Fawn’s Bugs and Kisses. I made some custom paper by stamping the bugs in brown ink on kraft card stock, then added some shadows to each bug. I like the effect because it looks like the bugs are popping up off of the background, when they really aren’t!
I used a few Copic markers in the E40 family (E40, E41, E42, and E43) to add the shadows on the kraft card stock. They are very similar to the color of the card stock and make subtle shadows when they’re dry.

To make the worm in a jar, I stamped the jar, worm and branch on a transparency with permanent ink. I stamped another worm and jar lid on white card stock, then colored them both in. Both pieces are attached to the back of the transparency.

Here’s a closer look at the worm in the jar and the card front:

My second card features a scene that I created with the Love You S’More set. It took a while to color everything, but I’m so happy with the final result!

I planned the background by first stamping the flames and the bear. I masked the flames and the bear and drew in light pencil lines where I wanted to stamp the background line of trees and color in the ground where the bear is sitting.

Here’s a closer look at the card front. After I colored the sky, I heat embossed the stars and used a blender pen to push the color around the stars so they each have a glow.
