It has been a while since I managed to play along any challenges, but I could not resist the current Lawn Fawnatics one: Summertime fun. As all my summer cards, this was inspired by our favourite lake near Budapest.
I stamped and coloured images from several Lawn Fawn sets: On the beach, Really High Five and Butterfly kisses. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour them in and the coordinating dies to cut them out. The colours are used are the following:
- umbrella: BT9, BT7, BT5, CT4, CT3, CT1
- bear: EB5, EB4, EB3, RB2, RB1
- rabbit: BG5, BG2, BG1, FS7
- fox: BO4, BO3, BO1, BG2, BG1
- ball: BT7, BT5, BT1
- butterflies: GT3, GT1
- drink: EB5, EB4, EB3, RB2, CT4, CT1, BT5
I also used a couple of dies and coloured cardstocks to set the scene: Stitched Waves for the water, Leafy Tree Backdrop, Cattail border and Grassy Hillside border for the landscape and the Sunburst Backdrop for the bakground.
I used Distress Oxide inks to add some shading and depth. I also added some diluted ink sprinkles, it adds so much texture.
I framed the scene with the largest Stitched Rectangle Frames.
The sentiment I stamped directly on the background and used glossy accents and a black glaze pen to emphasize some details.
I will upload this card to the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge #104, Simon Says Stamp IG Challenge (Color with us) and also to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Lazy Days of summer).
I hope you enjoyed this fun summer card and will come back for more inspiration soon.
