VIDEO: Lawnscaping Challenge #122: Watercolor

Hi guys!  Today I want to share my entry for Lawnscaping Challenge #122: Watercolor!  My dad's birthday is coming up and so I chose to create a masculine card with a camping theme for him.  He loves his RV and I thought the Happy Trails stamp set fit the bill perfectly!  


And of course, I used some watercolor since that was the challenge! I went with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and experimented with some Bristol Smooth White cardstock.  I have heard that other crafters just LOVE this paper with their Zigs so I wanted to try it out!  Turns out I had some in my stash from forever ago so it was just meant to be!


Once I had colored my images I fussy cut them out and then used some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give the whole thing a, well, vintage look!  


To create my background I colored directly on my Chevron Backgrounds stamp with the Zig markers and then stamped on my card base.  As I wiped the color off the stamp with a baby wipe my stamp got wet and I actually like the look of the last chevrons the best - they had the most water.  It really gives it that grungy, watercolor look.  More Vintage Photo and some water splashes completed the look!


Go check out the Lawnscaping Challenge (but hurry because it closes soon!) and use some adorable Lawn Fawn and watercolor!  I hope you enjoyed today's project and I'll see you all again soon with more crafty fun!  Bye!
