Lawnscaping August 2014 Blog Hop


Welcome to the Lawnscaping Blog Hop! The theme for August is Pinks and Warm Grays. The challenge is sponsored by the generous and amazing Spectrum Noir. The prize for this challenge are the two sets of markers featured above in the badge. They are my absolute favorite coloring medium. Be sure to check them out!

On to my card for the challenge. I used the Lawn Fawn, Woodgrain Backdrops for the background of my card. I took a grey card base and used Memento Luxe in Wedding Dress to ink up the woodgrain. The stamp fit about half my card, so I just reinked it and turned it over to stamp the other half. Love that it varies the look of the woodgrain just like the real deal.


For the die cut piece, I took from my stash (Heidi Swapp embossed cutouts) and I inked on with a craft sponge with my Memento in Rose Bud. I varied the pressure of rubbing it onto the cutout to vary the color of pink from darker to light.

For my little fox, I used him from the Lawn Fawn, Into the Woods set. The Me+You heart is also from the Woodgrain backdrops set. The fox was stamped onto white card stock with Memento, Black Tuxedo and I fussy cut him out and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir markers. For the heart, I inked up the solid heart with the Rose Bud ink, and stamped it off to lighten it up. For the outline and the ME+YOU text, I used Memento Luxe in Grey Flannel. 

I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge! Make sure you comment on each blog for your chance to win. The prize will be chosen from a commenter on any of the hoppers blogs so comment, comment, comment. Good luck!
