Happy Saturday friends!
I've been going crazy over the latest Lawn Fawn release...
you've seen it right?
When I saw the gumball machine
and the alphas
I had a bunch of fun ideas running around in my head.
Here's today's idea...
I envisioned gumballs rolling down a hill to tell that special friend
I first stamped and embossed the gumball machine in silver on watercolor paper.
I used the Lawn Fawn inks in Mermaid, Wild Rose, Sunflower and Freshly Cut Grass
to color in the gumballs by smooshing the inks on an acrylic block
and using my waterbrush pen to pick up the color.
After drying, it was die cut with the matching die.
I took Lawn Fawn's stitched hillside border die and inked it up with
Freshly Cut Grass and adhered to the card front.
Then started to stamp out the letters in the matching Lawn Fawn inks.
(the inks stamp amazingly crisp with solid images!)
I sponged on some Simon Says Stamp Surf Blue in at the top of the card
for added color. Then adhered the die cut machine with foam tape.
Finally I silver embossed the "you're" for the finishing touch.
(the "A" was die cut and adhered to the machine because it ended up being hidden...hehe)
Here's a closeup of that fun gumball machine...
I LOVE how it turned out with the embossed silver!
The Lawn Fawn inks work great as watercolor
but here's a tip...
to spread the color evenly I first wet the area I wanted to color with water,
then picked up the ink off of the acrylic block and colored away.
Hope you're all having a great weekend and
MAHALO for stopping by!!
