Lawnscaping Challenge: Summer Color Combo sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

Hello Hello! And welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge. How about a fun Summer color combo? Here in Florida, it is in the 90’s every single day! So I love this refreshing color combo…. So much so I made TWO projects. Let’s have a lookie:

For my first card, I had to make some pink lemonade. Nothing says summer like pink lemonade, right??? So of course, I had to use THIS SET and paired it with watercolors from this set (available in different quantities, see supply list below)…. I imagined rays of color bursting from the lemonade… And of course, I had to add some glossy accents to the pitcher and wink of stella glitter on the lemons.. Of course…

For my second card, I wanted to use this set…. Hello.. Summer. Ice cream. Popsicles… Can’t beat it. I heat embossed the image and sentiment in white and then used the same watercolors as the above card to color in the images and create the wash of colors. I inked up this set with peacock feathers distress ink (my all time favorite color) to create a panel…. And then for a finishing touch, I stamped the image from this set with Hero Arts Butter Bar shadow ink.

Oh, as a finishing touch, I did some edge distressing… If you don’t have a tool, grab a steak knife! It works like a charm! I think this card is my favorite of the two.
