The current Lawnscaping challenge is a mood board inspiration challenge, to create something inspired by the photo they posted. The teal & yellow color scheme, with a pop of black, appealed to me, so I based my card on that. I used Sketch #SC562 from Splitcoaststampers for my design.
I stamped the gumball machine from Lawn Fawn's "Sweet Smiles" set on a piece of Strathmore Smooth Bristol paper, using Versafine Onyx Black ink, and clear heat embossed it. After stamping some of the faces from "Sweet Smiles" & heat embossing them, I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color pens & a damp paintbrush.
For the background, I pulled out my new-to-me "Plaid Background Builder" stamp set by My Favorite Things. I stamped the background pattern with Hero Arts inks in Lemon Yellow, Butter Bar, & Soft Pool. That was actually the longest part of the whole card process. Yes, I could have used patterned paper, but I like to do this sort of thing every so often! :)
Once I had my background done, I assembled my card. I cut 2 pieces of pool-colored cardstock to the dimensions in the sketch, and adhered them to my background panel. I stamped the greeting, also from "Sweet Smiles," on a strip of yellow cardstock, and adhered it & the focal panel in place. Finally, I mounted my card front to a white A2 card base.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
