Happy summer – ft. Lawn Fawn

Hello Everyone,

We are back from a mini holiday in Austria, which was breathtaking and so relaxing. It is a “definitely need to visit again” type of place, despite the long drive. I was so busy before the trip that I had no time to play along the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #55 (Mood board and colour inspiration) and the new Simon Says Stamp Instagram Challenge: summer time fun.

Yesterday night I squeezed in some colouring time and today morning I finished this cutie:

I started with die cutting the Tropical Backdrop die from Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured it with my Copics.

I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and created a sunset background using Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks.

On a leftover piece I also blended Mermaid lagoon Distress Oxide, added some water splatters and sprayed it with Avery Elle Clear shimmer mist for a subtle sparkle. When it was dry, I die cut it with the new Stitched Simple Wavy Borders die. While I was die cutting, I also cut the sentiment from black cardstock with the Happy Summer line border die.

For the stamped images I used an older set called Life is good (one of my all time favourites), I colored them with Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

After assembling the scene, I framed it all with a white Stitched frame so it looks like a picture to hang on the wall. Could be a nice summer home decor too. I stamped a few birds from the same stamp set with black ink, added some glossy accents to the sea critters and my card was finished.

I will also link this project to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything goes.

I hope you liked today’s card and will be back soon for more inspiration.

See you,
