Love You Tons - Lawnscaping Challenge #106

Hello! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #106! This round we are all about stretching ourselves and trying something new! That's the ultimate challenge, don't you think? Stepping out of your comfort zone and just going for it?

The technique that I'd been wanting to try was the increasingly popular no-line coloring. And let me tell you, friends, it is harder than it looks! But definitely worth it in the end. The end result has such a soft and pretty quality to it. I combined the big elephant from Lawn Fawn's Critters In The Jungle with one of the little elephants from Love You Tons.

We want to extend a huge thanks to our dear (deer?) friends at Lawn Fawn for sponsoring us with a FREE stamp set of our winners choice! Please head over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other incredible design team samples and link up your projects to play along!

Enjoy Your Day - Lawnscaping Challenge #105

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Lawnscaping Challenge #105: Watercolors! Watercoloring just happens to be one of my most favorite techniques so I am super excited to help bring it to you for our next challenge. 

Since I hadn't had a chance to use my Lawn Fawn Let's Play stamps and dies yet at all, they were definitely calling my name. And my favorite image of all in that set is the squirrel, so I decided to make him the feature of my card and give him a couple friends. Scribbling Distress Markers on an acrylic block and picking it up with a damp paintbrush is one of my favorite methods of watercoloring, so that is what I did here. I tried really hard to make it look like a beautiful cloudy day on my background and ended up being really happy with the results. I hope you like it too!

Special thanks to Ellen Hutson, LLC for sponsoring us with a $25 gift certificate to her amazing shop for our winner! Head on over to the Lawnscaping Challenge blog to check out the other amazing design team samples and to link up your watercolor projects and play along!
