Lawn Fawnatics – Challenge #63 – Year Ten

Hey Friends!

A new Lawn Fawnatics Challenge has just begun. This challenge runs for 3 weeks and ends April 5th at 11:59pm EST. We are celebrating Lawn Fawn’s 10th birthday!

Every year, to celebrate their birthday, Lawn Fawn has a mini set. This year, the Year Ten set is a cactus. I’ve used this mini stamp set to create a rainbow card and it’s loads of fun!

I started by creating my background with Distress Inks! I have to admit that it’s been a long time since I’ve used Distress Inks. I LOVE ink-blending with Distress Oxides and my Distress Inks have been neglected. I pulled them out today to do a watercolor background.

I used textured watercolor paper and thought it would be fun to give it lots of color. After brush some wet paper over each colored section (working one color at a time), I applied some ink, and then used my heat tool to dry the area. Each color and step is repeated for 2-3 layers. Every time you dry-you get more water lines and it creates a really organic look. To give it a stitched border, I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies to trim down my panel.

Distress Ink colors used: Abandoned Coral, Scattered Straw, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet

I stamped and colored all the cacti and it’s pots/flowers in rainbow colors before die-cutting and adding them over my rainbow background panel using foam adhesive. My sentiment is embossed over black cardstock and also attached to my card using foam adhesive.

Copic colors used:
Cacti:  R20, YG61, YG63, YG67
Pinks:  RV13, RV14, RV17
Yellows:  Y00, Y02, Y38
Greens/Teals:  BG24, BG45, BG49
Blues:  BG000, BG01, BG05
Purples:  BV02, BV04, BV08

I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ll help us celebrate Lawn Fawn’s birthday by playing along with this challenge!
