A one layer card inspired by a sketch challenge, MFT #140. My one layer cards are still a work in progress. The seals playing ball on the beach just made me laugh. The three circles are the sun, beach ball, and a circle made by the dolphin and the wave. The waves were drawn in by tracing around the Lawn Fawn Stitched Wave Borders.
I love all things Disney! When I saw the two challenges by MFT and AAA clean and simple, I had to combine the two and this card is the result. The challenges combined were MFT sketch challenge #441 and AAA clean and simple challenge #141. The photo frame and the background “paper” were simply drawn with pencil and a ruler and then an gone over with a black liner. I used Gina K black ink for Minne and Mickey. It was difficult to get good coverage with this ink and this stamp. I don’t know why. So the castle and the Mickey heads were stamped with Versafine onyx black ink. The castle in the background is a second stamping of the black ink to give a more faded appearance.
My 13 yo daughter KMM made this birthday card for me. She was inspired by my first horse Dash. Dash was a black and white paint with a black mane. I always say that he was my Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.
So, I’ve been following Davina (popsiclesticks) on Intsagram for sometime. I love her use of Lawn Fawn stamps that she “alters” to make the different Harry Potter cards. They are so lovely! I bought this horse stamp for Christmas a while ago from Whimsy Stamps. The original stamp is the girl in the green winter coat with ear muffs. I thought, wouldn’t it be cute to make this a young girl giving her horse a bucket of well deserved apples for a winning round at a horse show? So, my first attempt at “altering” a stamp is here.
Copic markers: the horse is E15, E18, E51, W3; reds: R29,R27,R49, blues: B39,B37 Prismacolor metallic gold pencil for sleigh bells. Distressed Oxides (red background): Candied Apple, Barn Door, Picket Fence (for dot stencil) Ink on 3 Fadeout for stamping the images.
Lawnfawnatics last challenge was skies. This sky was created with a sunray stencil and distressed oxide inks. Lots of masking to create this. The trees were copic markers. Some gold and white gold watercolor and nuvo drops for accents.
