Hello! Kelly here with a card for the October theme. I’m excited to be collaborating with one of my favorite companies this month, Lawn Fawn.
I am a huge animal lover and animal themed stamps are my favorite. I find Distress Ink blends well for me on bristol cardstock, so I used a piece of bristol for the background. I blended two shades of Distress Oxide ink using a sponge applicator. I was getting finger prints on the wet ink so I put a piece of post it note on the bristol card to hold it while blending the ink. I then splattered some water on the blended background let it sit for a little while and blotted it with paper towel to make white blotches. I used my Hero Arts heat tool to dry the ink then stamped the Lawn Fawn “Lets Bokeh” circles with Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink. On a piece of watercolor paper I used a pencil to lightly draw a snow bank then stamped the tree, deer and rabbit from Hero Arts set Winter Time Fun. I watercolored the images using Inktense pencils. I then fussy cut it out and adhered it to the bokeh background. The die cut sentiment is a Lawn Fawn die, Merry Christmas Border. To finish the card I adhered glitter, used a Glaze pen on the critters eyes and added a diecut star.
I’m really looking forward to seeing critters on your cards this month. Thanks for stopping by.
