Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week--Wheelie Like You

Monday, April 13, 2015

Today I created something a little different compared to all of my pastely and bright cards. I actually found the inspiration for this particular card on Pinterest one day when I was browsing. I thought this would look really sweet on a card using the little critter image from the mini stamp set, Wheelie like you. I love that this card is dark but it's still cute and romantic with the shadow of the moon. If you take a close look at this card you'll notice it's a one layer card. I did a lot of masking and used a variety of distress inks to achieve this look, as well. I think the hardest part of creating this card was having to hand draw the shadows of the guinea pig using a dark gray Copic marker. I also wish that my camera would have picked up on how awesome the moon really looked in person. I did some soft watercoloring to make the moon look life like and neon.

I also had fun using some of the darker pattern papers form the awesome 6x6 Beach Side petite paper pack. That pack of papers has so many great patterns and I love all of the darker hues in that collection.

Lawn Fawn always does such an amazing job of packaging such cute images and sentiments into their mini stamp sets, and this one is no exception. There is so much you can do with this set and if you need a little more inspiration using this set you can ahead over to the Lawn Fawn blog by, clicking here.

  16. I love this so much! I thought for sure that you reversed the stamp or used the matching die to create the shadows - but SUPER impressed that you hand-drew them. Wowza.
