Sweet wishes by Lawn Fawn (The Rubber Buggy)

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another DT-project for The Rubber Buggy.
Please, check out the store which is now filled with lots of goodies for the summer. Kellie has been stocking up on lots of new awesomeness from Blue Fern Studios lately :)

Anyhow, back to my card...
I used the same stamp set for this card, that's unusual for me as I love to mix and match amongst the Lawn Fawn love :)

The stamped images are colored with copic markers and then fuzzy cut as I didn't want the white border that shows on the die cut. I die cut circles from the Magnolia paper to act as kitchen tiles and the kitchen counter is just watercolor paper colored with distress ink.

The background is stamped repeatedly with the little hearts that are included in the stamp set.

I toped the card with a satin ribbon from my stash. It was actually bright blue from the beginning, but I changed the tone using a dark brown spray. You can also make your own ribbon using supplies from the store, such as satin string and dylusion spray.

Products used on this card:
Lawn Fawn stamp set Milk & cookies
Copic markers
Distress ink Vintage photo
Memory Box Open studio dies stitched circle layers
Magnolia paper apple & cherries 50's collection 50's kitchen'
Stamping supplies (neenah cardstock kraft, doublesided tape, scissors, archival ink coffee, watercolor paper)

 Thank you for visiting!

By the sea card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another card for The Rubber Buggy.

I had a blast with this card, using lots of different techniques. I used distress ink on watercolor paper for my background and then I dropped some water randomly to create the look of pools behind my stamped image.

I stamped my Pearl Tilda on super smooth Neenah cardstock, my go to paper for copic coloring and carefully fuzzy cut her to place on my background. In order to get all the details from the stamp with the bubbles I also stamped her on to the background. Saving me some time with the scissors. I also stamped some beautiful seashells on watercolor paper and used distress ink and water to color them.

I then gave them a bit of shimmer with my wink of stella and that really made the image pop. I  believe that the distress ink somewhat reacted with the stella marker. But I can't say that for sure.

Products used from the store:
Magnolia Rubber Stamp PEARL TILDA
G45 Cling Stamp set By the Sea #1 (no longer availiable in the store)
Spellbinders nestabilities foliage (no longer availiable in the store)
