Always Butterfly-A Lawnscaping Challenge Card

Hello! Today I wanted to quickly share the card I made for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge! 


This card is mostly out of my usual style. I don't usually do a distressed, inky, soft background like this. It was very fun to stretch my fingers.....so to speak ; )

I stamped flowers from this LF set on a white background, masked them off, then covered the rest with a couple of Distress Ink colors. While it was still wet I flicked a little water on it and sprayed it with Mr. Huey's Calico Shine. I wasn't sure what the colors would look like so I waited until it dried before I picked out the flower colors. I kind of love the way the woodgrain paper base adds texture.

The sentiment I used is actually from Simons Say Stamp, just because I didn't have a LF one that matched the occasion. I stamped it with StazOn ink onto sticky canvas and die cut.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll come back later today to link up the products, gotta run!
