Back again with another card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge Blog. The Challenge I'm playing with today is the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 6 – Cheerful Get Well.
I recently purchased the Our Friendship Grows stamp set and I knew I had to use it for this challenge. I have wanted this stamp set for such a long time the sunflowers are just beautiful and cheerful.
I paper pieced the flowers, leaves and the pot with Lawn Fawn paper and I ink blended the background using distress inks and Bristol Smooth paper. I wasn't sure if I was going to like blending on this paper and I was wrong I LOVE blending on it! I had to be careful not to fingerprint it up but other than that the inks blended beautifully.
I liked it so much I decided to use it on some Father's Day cards I just made yesterday and I even did some ink smushing and the paper stood up to the water. I still love using watercolor paper but if you don't want to spend a ton of time blending I would recommend this cardstock. Another great thing about it is it comes in larger sizes so I've also used it for card bases on multi layer folding cards, it is sturdy and is comparable to the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cover cardstock for weight.
Enough talking :) here is my card!
Have a wonderful and blessed day!
