Lawnscaping Challenge 122

Hi, everybody! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge (#122), and we’re incorporating watercoloring into our projects! Thank you to everyone who played along with us in the “Winter Wonderland” challenge! We loved your chilly creations!

I’m not really comfortable working with watercolors, so I just used them for the background behind the sentiment.


My original idea was to use the die cut as a stencil and heat emboss the sentiment, but it didn’t seem to stand out enough. So, I tried outlining the letters with a black pen and it went a little overboard, so I glued the die cut over the embossed part and thought it looked a lot better!

The rest of the card came together fairly easily. I stamped stars from the Lucky Stars set in a few different colors of neon ink, then stamped the outline stamps over the solids in black. I stamped and heat embossed the other part of the sentiment on smooth black card stock and layered a small strip of silver glitter paper over that.

Lawnscaping Challenge: Watercoloring

Hi, everybody! Hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m stopping in today to share my card for the latest Lawnscaping challenge! This week’s challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn Stamps, and the theme is watercoloring. I haven’t done much watercoloring for a while, but I am glad I challenged myself!
I created a watercolor effect with the solid flower stamps in Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Roll” set. First, I inked the flowers with a water-based dye ink, thinned the ink with a water brush, then stamped the flowers onto some slightly-textured natural paper.
I stamped the chopsticks on kraft card stock, stamped and colored the sushi rolls on white card stock, and stamped the sentiment on black card stock with watermark ink, then heat embossed opaque white powder over the stamped sentiment.
