My card today is for the Lawnscaping Challenge. It is my first time to enter their challenge and I am so excited. I love Lawn Fawn products and now that I have purchased a few of their wonderful products, I can play along.
The challenge is to create your own background with your stamps. I had so much fun with this technique. First, I created my own distressed ink/watercolored paper. I added several different inks together and then splashed a few drops of water on it to give it a "bokeh" look. Then I stamped the post office seal in Primrose Petals ink (retired) and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder. Then I went back and stamped the canceled mail stamp in Versa Mark and heat embossed it in black. It gave such a cool shine to my paper! I love it! Something new for me. I am a paper hoarder, but I really like making my own backgrounds now. Maybe that will help curb my need to purchase soooo much paper. LOL! Now, I can buy more stamps!!!!
I wanted you to see the background paper a little closer, so hope this reflects all the details. I also added Glossy Accents to all the little hearts on the envelopes and sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please leave a comment if you can, I love to hear your thoughts!
