Hello there! Isn't the August colour palette just gorgeous??!! I love it!! And since we also have a Lawn Fawn themed month going on here at Off the Rails, I've combined both of the themes for my step-by-step card project :).
Here is how I created the card:
This is my finished card - inside and outside :).
I first cut five pieces of watercolour paper and sprayed them with various spray inks (Dylusions, Tattered Angels, Heidi Swapp and Lindy´s Stamp Gang). I mainly kept to red, orange and purple tones.
When the paper was dry, I took my "This way to fun for SC" Lawn Fawn stamp set and stamped arrows with black dye ink onto each paper piece.
Then I fussy cut them.
Next I glued the arrows down on my card base and chose a sentiment stamp from the stamp set for stamping. See how the sentiment consists of three different words? I only wanted to stamp one word onto one arrow, so I only partly inked the sentiment stamp and then pressed the inked image onto paper. This way I can vary where my words will be on the card and since the arrows/chevrons are so small, there is only place for one word per chevron.
Next I opened the card and stamped smileys inside the card and colored those with markers.
I then added a Lawn Fawn trimming in the middle of the card for additional detail.
Finally I also added some additional stamping into the chevron patterns for more eye candy/detail. Now my card was done. I hope you have enjoyed this little step-by-step and get inspired to create with the lovely colour palette from August. I really like the Lawn Fawn products too, especially the stamps (you know I´m a stamp lover in general, right?) as they are very versatile and they have many kinds of designs and really tiny images too that can be combined in so many ways!!
