Hello Crafty Friends! Today, I am sharing a card inspired by Lawn Fawn’s Inspiration/Color Board below for Challenge #124- Cards for Guys. When I saw the inspiration board, lumberjacks and logging immediately came to mind!
To create the background, I ink blended Weathered Wood Distress Oxide Ink with the the Mountain Stencil on 4.25″H x 5.5″W white cardstock. I then ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink. For the mountain snow caps, I used the Mountain Stencil and added White Stencil paste to the top of the mountains.
For the lake, I die cut three waves from white cardstock using Ocean Waves Borders. I ink smooshed the the borders on my glass media mat with Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide. I then splattered blue watercolour onto the waves for added interest.
To make the frame, I ink blended Faded Jeans, Tumbled Glass, Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide Ink with the Plaid Stencil onto 4.24″H x 5.5″W white cardstock. I also splattered blue watercolour onto the card. I then used the Forest Backdrop to die cut the frame.
I adhered the waves onto the mountain background layer by layer starting with the layer with the smallest waves and leaving the layer with the largest waves for the front of the card. I adhered the logs, lumberjack, fish, and water splashes coloured with Copic Markers listed below.
The trees that came with the frame were ink blended with Rustic Wilderness and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink. The wood slices were hand drawn on bubble stamps from Scripty Bubble Sentiments and the circle stamp from Push Here. I created the axe using the scarf from Snow Much Fun. I wiped off the ink on part of the scarf before stamping and fussy cut the scarf.
I finished off the card by adding a white embossed sentiment from Let’s Roll and brown twine for a rustic effect.
The Challenge is open until Sunday, June 5th at 11:59PM ET. All entries will have a chance to win a $50 Lawn Fawn gift certificate and you will also have a chance to be featured in the Lawn Fawnatics Blog!
