LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE 73 – BIRTHDAY!
This is my 19th day of participating in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge. Have you been playing along? I have and it's been great motivation.
For this card I used my We R Stamp Press and Post-It notes. For my Stamp Press, I used 3 clear plates, 1 comes with the Press. And I have 2 of them. You can also buy the clear plates separately. The Post-It notes were turned into masks for all the stamps. You see, I needed the masks to help me create the scene. Also, I needed the masks so I was able to use the homemade stencils to create the grass and balloons on the card. I did stamp the sentiment onto the card while I was setting up the scene. But once the scene was done, I realized that the sentiment was very crooked. So that is why the stamped banner is there. Also, if you happen to have the die cut I used for the banner. I had to alter it a bit as the sentiment was much shorter then the banner and I needed to use it as cover up. Now as for the coloring, that is a mix of alcohol markers and colored pencils. the dog with the bone. Her ears were colored with pencil. The bone and the ball were also colored with pencil. I blended the colors together using baby oil. Baby oil is an easier medium for me to use as it doesn't dry too quickly, unlike denatured alcohol.
