The theme at WorldWatercolorGroup is Travel memories and my entry this week is a painting of a Namibian Elephant. I was there many years ago writing a report for SIDA on Women's crafting Projects and got to visit Etosha National Park.
The Challenge at Bastel traum is Thank You cards and at CASology it is FRAMES and at Papirdesign:it's all about the stamp - this is my take. I used the super fun Goldfish layering set from Hero Arts for my card.
At Scrappegarasjen: the challenge is Less is more and it is a great card for a man too; Stamping Sensations - For the boys
And of course I have to enter the Simon Says Stamp
Monday Challenge; - music with inspiration from A Swedish song called - Jag går och fiskar (I'm going fishing) by Gyllene Tider, but since most of you won't know (except for Anna-Karin (-: ) that song I found a fun old Dolly's song called Something Fishy in which her dh goes fishing and there's something fishy going on (-;
It's Karin here to share some inspiration for the Lawnscaping Challenge blog.
For this card I started out by stamping and coloring the sweet images from Into the woods with watercolorpencils. I then fuzzy cut them - I actually made two of each to create extra dimension. The trees are inked using distress ink and an inkblending tool. The trees and mushrooms are from the classic and awesome Critters in the forest set!
I heatembossed the etched floral bg from MFT with brown distress embossingpowder on watercolorpaper. I use Canson Montval 200gms which is good but very reasonably priced. I wouldn't use it for watercolor paintings, but for cardmaking it is perfect!
I then colored the flowers using a watercolor technique called layeringing which is when you first paint the flower one color and let it dry before adding another layer of the same color which creates a darker version of the same color. You then do this as many times as you need to get the dimension on the flower as you want.
I let it dry completely before I trimmed the panel. I then adhered it to a slightly larger creamcolored panel before attaching it to the cardbase with foam adhesive.
I'm here today to introduce a new challenge at Lawnscaping. This time it is a Texture Challenge!!! It doesn't show very well in this picture, but I ran both the cardbase and the panel through my diecutting machine along with some burlap and the panel with a piece of washcloth.
For my card I used the following Lawn Fawn Supplies;
