Lady & The Tramp: Lawnscaping Challenge #82

Hello! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #82
sponsored by the wonderful Lawn Fawn!
Lawn fawn is offering up a FREE stamp set to our winner!

Here's my card:

So as soon as I heard that the next challenge was Distress,
I knew I wanted to create a beautiful night sky.
And while pondering what to put beneath it,
I had a flashback to one of my childhood favorite movies:
Disney's Lady And The Tramp.

These two sweet pups from Critters In The Dog Park
were pretty much perfect to make my inspiration come true.
I painted my background with Distress Inks in Salty Ocean,
Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Black Soot
and the hill with Shabby Shutters and Chipped Sapphire.
Then I watercolored my pups with Distress Markers 
in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood, 
Stormy Sky, Black Soot, Barn Door, and Fired Brick.

It seemed like it was missing something to finish off the scene,
so the final step was to freehand a row of distant trees
with Pine Needles and Black Soot Distress Markers.

I breathed a sigh of relief that I hadn't ruined the card ;)
and added a sentiment from Lucky Stars and called it a day.

I really hope you like it!
