Lawnscaping Challenge #36 – Color Splash!

It’s time for another Lawnscaping challenge. Yay!

The challenge this week is to use neutral colors with a pop of bright color. This creates tons of dynamic possibilites! Here’s what I came up with:

My background is my favorite kraft cardstock layered with more cardstock cut with the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Styled Labels die. To emphasize this texture, I stitched around the outside of the shapes with some white thread.

The cute pop of color comes from the lovely unicorn from Lawn Fawn’s Critters Ever After. I love this set so much! It’s perfect for so many occasions. That fab color comes from Prismacolor Colored Pencils (I love my 48-count set – it looks like Amazon is having an AWESOME sale on my favorite set, too. Check it out if you’ve been waiting for a good price!). I just love how thick and creamy nice colored pencils are on kraft. YUM! I did the mane with a Uni-Ball Signo Broad so that it was extra-bright white.

A huge thanks goes out to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring this challenge. We wouldn’t be here without them because we are a challenge inspired by them. Make sure to check out the Lawn Fawn website heretheir awesome blog here and of course their full line of stamps and now a full paper collection over at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Now make sure to hop over to the Lawnscaping blog for a ton more inspiration and details on how to enter the challenge. I can’t wait to see what you create for this one!

Bonus video tutorial alert! Speaking of Lawnscaping, I had a Fresh Cuts video tutorial go up over on the Lawnscaping blog the other day. Here’s a peek at the card! Click here (or on the photo of the card) to check out the post in full. :)

    I’m CRAZY about the STITCHING on your first card!

  2. Adorable card Britta and love the stitching!! Speaking of Prismacolor – have you tried out their new alcohol markers? (At least I think they’re new?) Just curious. Thanks!

    Great card. Thanks for your diligence. I learn a lot from you. I have a question for you. It is off the subject, but maybe you can help. I and my friend were discussing the thousands of stickers we have from the “early days” and wondering what we could do with them. Can you think of some cool way to use them? Have a great day and God bless.

      Hey Alice, I don’t know if you have any small children between you and your friend, but my girls love my stickers. I won’t use them any more, but they love to craft along with me and they love to sticker on anything and everything! The other thought is to use them to make a bunch of children’s cards (birthdays and holidays) and then donate the cards to a retirement or nursing home. A lot of elderly people would love to use the cards to give to their grandchildren (or great grandchildren!). Good luck, and I hope that helps!
