Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #16!
And we have a brand-new sponsor for you this round:
Jenni has a wide range of amazing products.
I'm particularly fond of her inks -- they're my favorites!
I had a really difficult time brainstorming
for this challenge -- ONE layer?
No patterned paper? No ribbon? No buttons?
No foam dimesionals?
It took me completely out of my comfort zone.
But you know what? I'm glad it did.
Because it's good to challenge yourself in new ways.
Here's what I came up with:
I used Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Forest
and Bon Voyage, and LOTS of masking on this card.
I started with a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square, then cut out
a center square from the middle.
I left the outer square mask on, and did my stamping
and distress inking and coloring in the middle,
using lots MORE masking for my scene
(Inkadinkado Stamp Masking Paper is my secret weapon).
When I had the focal image the way I wanted it,
I put the center square mask back on,
then took off the outer square and replaced it with
strips of masking paper, which I alternately pulled up
and either distressed with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink,
or painted with a Jenni Bowlin paint dabber in Malted Milk.
The effect is kinda cool.
I hope you like it!
