Lawn Fawn Challenge No. 89 - You Make My World Go Round

So this is the first time I enter into such a challenge. One can enter a total of 3 x cards and the theme this time round is One Layer. You may think that it's easy but it isn't at all. I was really stressed up when I was doing my card. This is the 1st time for me after all. =) The winner gets to win a $25 voucher from SSS. I guess it's not really much of the reward that one do all these but rather, the sharing of their cards.

In the event of doing this card, I 'damaged' a few. =( One Layer cards require more attention as you no longer can use sequins or other stuff to cover up your mistakes. Anyway, take a look at my completed card!

Supplies used were all from Lawn Fawn except for the paper itself. =) Majority of the card is water colored. I didn't use a water color paper and it turned out not that bad. I don't load lots of water anyway...

Stamp: Admit One.
Inks: Derwent Inktense & Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn for the grass & Stormy Sky for the clouds. Ink for sentiment is Archival in Jet Black.

Well, I do hope I win but even if I don't, there's always the next time. =)

See ya around!

  1. Aw, this is so cute! How did you make the grass?! I have such a hard time with one layer cards, too! Thanks for playing along with us at Lawnscaping! :)

    1. Hi Elise, many thanks for your compliments! ^^
      For the grass, I die cut it from Lawn Fawn's grassy border. I then use the side where one would not usually use to adhere on their project. I then use that as a guide on the card and use some Distress Ink and Mini Blending Foam to blend the color on the paper.
      I hope that makes sense. If you are still unclear, feel free to let me know and I'll reply with photos. =)
      Wishing you a blessed Friday!

    1. Yes indeed it is challenging. One small mistake is all it takes to ruin the whole card, for 1 layer that is. ^^ Thanks for your compliments!
