Lawnscaping Challenge #104: Sketch

Good morning! Lawnscaping has a new challenge up today. See the image below for the sketch we are following. Lots of ways to go about this one :)


The sponsor for this challenge is Lawn Fawn! I hope you participate because they have SO many things to choose from to order...



And now for my project I created using this sketch:



For this card, I used a variety of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create this card. I wanted the sentiment and feathers to really pop, so I chose to use a black/chalkboard looking paper to use for my blocks behind the main focal point.

I trimmed them all down and grabbed my Memento Luxe ink in Wedding Dress and started having fun. 

The upper left block, I used the bow and ties of the bow from the Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park set, as well as the small star which I stamped in Radiant Neon, Electric Yellow. It's very subtle on there which is just what I wanted. 

For the upper right block, I used the three hearts that come in the Lawn Fawn, Love You a Latte set. I grouped them on my stamping block and started stamping, rotating the block to create the background.



The large block at the bottom of the card was fun. I used the dotted line from the Lawn Fawn Deck the Halls set and swirled it on my stamping block in the shape you see here. I then stamped the three berries in the open spaces from the same set. 

For my fun little cluster, I picked a large dark wood flower from my stash and adhered that to the card. I pulled the SMILE sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods set and stamped it onto a piece of pattered paper from the Snow Day 6x6 Petite Paper Pack. I used my Versafine in Onyx Black to really make it pop! It's a juicy ink pad. Love it. 

I simply cut around that and used foam adhesive to glue to the card, right in the center of the flower. 
I took the two feathers from the Lawn Fawn, Dream set and stamped them with Versafine, Onyx Black onto some watercolor paper. I diecut them out using the coordinating Lawn Cuts set. 



To color them in, I used my water brush pen with Distress Ink in Scattered Straw, Radiant Neon in Electric Yellow, Electric Blue, and Memento in Nautical Blue and Tangelo. I painted the colors on so they blended nicely. I snuck in a piece of cording on the flower using my Lawn Trimmings Triple Pack Cord and used foam adhesive to stick on the feathers. I found a cool arrow chipboard piece in my stash that I snuck in there as well. It brought a little movement and color to the entire card! 

I hope you enjoyed my project and that you play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge this time. Check out the BLOG for full instructions and to link up your project. Happy crafting!
