Hello my Inky fingered friends. I was hoping to have this up a few day sooner, but I have been completely swamped. I’m so sorry. With that being said, let’s get down to business
There is a new Moodboard available this March and the colors are so fresh full of Spring. I can’t wait to see what you create with the Canary Yellow, Rose Pink, Cobalt Blue and a deep Midnight Blue.
I’ve used this color board already several times for my DT posts with Reverse Confetti, but for this post, I created a fun Lawn Fawn nighttime stargazing scene. This was actually the first time I had a chance to play with my newest Lawn Fawn haul. I used Super Star, and Dandy Day for this card, and I am so happy with the results.
I started this project by inkblending a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Distress Oxides inks in the colors Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire. I splattered it with clean water, white ink, and metallic gold ink.
Next, using dark navy cardstock, I cut two panels from the new Lawn Fawn Meadow Backdrop. I only purchased the landscape as of now, but I was able to use a regular rectangle stitched Die to trim the landscape grassy hill to fit my scene. I kept one piece together, with washi tape on the backside, and removed the upper portion from the second piece. I heat embossed a sentiment to the bottom of the shorter piece and used a little metallic gold water color to fill in the letters. Then, I gently blended some Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink on to the the very edges, to give the grassy hills a soft glow. I used liquid glue to adhere the taller layer onto my inkblended panel, then I used foam tape to attach the shorter layer above that.
I stamped images from both sets onto Bright White Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I used YG23 for the green stems of the dandelions, and went over the green with B95 to tone it down to a nighttime shade. I also heat embossed some gold constellations and colored the insides in with the same gold watercolor from earlier. After using the coordinating dies to cut everything out, I highlighted with small white dots.
Finally, I adhered all of my images with Lawn Fawn Glue Tube making sure to create depth and dimension by using all of the layers and panels. I staggered the dandelions behind the first grassy layer, and the critters onto the hills.
