Good morning! It’s time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge and we’re challenging you to use watercoloring in your project! You can use traditional watercolor paints, distress ink, zig markers, or simply smoosh ink onto an acrylic block and use a waterbrush!
Our fabulous friends at Lawn Fawn are sponsoring this challenge!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog you know that I enjoy dabbling in watercolor painting but I’m still very much a beginner. I considered trying to use my watercolors but decided to err on the safer side and watercolor with my distress inks.
I used two forms of watercoloring on this card. I smooshed Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, and Chipped Sapphire distress ink onto a scrap piece of acetate, spritzed it with water, and used the acetate to dab the ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. I did several applications of ink and dried the paper with my heat tool between applications. Next I stamped my umbrella and duckling from Hello Baby with a second generation stamping of Antique Linen distress inks to get a faint outline. I smooshed several distress inks onto an acrylic block and used a waterbrush to do no-line watercolor painting.
I die-cut stitched fishtail tags from pink cardstock and vellum and then stamped the sentiment onto the vellum layer and heat-embossed it with silver powder. To finish the card I added a bow of pink and silver twine and adhered the tags to my card with foam mounting tape.
Head over to the Lawnscaping blog to get all the details on the challenge and see the stunning creations from the rest of the design team! I look forward to seeing what you will create! Thanks so much for visiting and have a great Monday!
