Thursday Lawn Fawn Background Challenge

Happy Thursday!

There is a new Lawnscaping Challenge up this week and it is a really fun one!


The challenge to create your own background using Lawn Fawn stamps was sooooo fun!  I broke out my stars stamp set and dies and got busy!  I looked around my supplies and decided to get really inky and I broke out my distress inks and mini mister as well!  I had a blast!!
Of course, I made this one for my son's lunch box.  He is so cute because he saves all of them in a shoe box and he just loved getting them.

I started my background with some watercolor paper and then stamped and heat embossed the random stars.  I then got inky with my distress ink and then misted some water on it,  I then got out my Core'djnations and created the base and star.  So  love how this turned out!

supply list
cardstock- water color paper, Core'dinations Gemstones- Glitter Silk and 110 lb smooth
stamps & dies- lawn fawn
ink- distress ink, jenni bowlin

I made a video showing the process on how I created the background.  Hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project and video!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
