I was so excited for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #4 “black & white & bright” that I made two cards. The first card is this “congrats” card that I intend to send to a good friend who is a musician.
For the black and white part, I used the stencil “Concerto” by Tim Holtz with Nuvo Glimmer Paste. The colour I used is Black Diamond. For the “bright” part of this card, I die-cut Lawn Fawns’ Scripty Congrats and some flowers from their set Fab Flowers from teal-coloured cardstock. I stamped the coordinating layering stamps in a darker shade than the cardstock. To make the sentiment stand out, I adhered it to a piece of vellum and added some Wink of Stella.
For my second entry for this challenge, I decided to take penguins as the black and white part and colour their accessories in a bright yellow:
The penguins are from the My Favourite Things stamp set Penguins in Paradise and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Let’s Bokeh. I coloured the penguins with Copic markers (the colours are listed below, in case you are interested) and then I die-cut them with the coordinating dies.
- penguins: 100; cheeks: R20; beaks and feet: Y21
- swimming accessories: Y15
- cocktail: Y15, YR15, R24; flower: BG 45, BG 49
- ice cream: E27 (or E25?) and E51
On black cardstock, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I put some foam adhesive on the back of the penguins and adhered them onto the card.
I originally posted these cards on my Flickr page and linked the images to the Lawn Fawnatics site.
I hope you enjoyed the cards! Thank you for stopping by!
