The night sky was stamped the stars from Star Turnabout Bundle from Concord and 9th.. with Versamark Ink  and then heat embossed with Stampendous Kaleidoscope EP030 Embossing Powder  (Since this was my first time to use this set I double stamped a little off-set on one of the rotations oops)  I then sponged Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  for the emboss resist technique and wiped off the stars with a soft cloth.  As you can see on photo on right I masked the scarves before stamping then fussy cut them to create summer animals.

Slider slot cut with  Lawn Fawn Slide on Over Lawn Cuts Dies LF1202.  See how MY FRIEND FLIPPER flips & flips across the inside of the bottle in photos below:

The background for the Jar was first stamped with Fintastic Friends by Lawn Fawn & colored with Copics, then I topped them with Versamark Embossing Pen then heat embossed with clear Ranger Embossing Powder , so they would resist the inks.   Next I sponged with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger , then finally I wiped the ink off of the heat embossed bubbles, crab and seaweed.  Then I cut the waves with Making Waves Cover Die by Mama Elephant.  The same resist technique was used for the sentiment label also.

For the jar, I taped the 2 jar shapes together so I could cut frames & cut several from  a cardboard cracker box and one from white cardstock.  I glued them all together & sponged the top layer with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  and then inked with Versamark Ink  and heat embossed with clear Ranger Embossing Powder .

(2019 c35) Lawn Fawn, Dining at the Carrot Farm

(2019 c35) Lawn Fawn Carrot Farm Dining.jpg

Well, wasn’t this FUN!!!  I created this totally with white card stock.  Step one, I “impressed” the plowed furrows in the field by using Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Boarders , then I made a mask with cardstock with the same die so I could sponge Distress Inks by Ranger  to create the grass, dirt and sky.  Before sponging though I colored the tops of carrots that would poke up out of the dirt with Copicsand topped them with Versamark Embossing Pen then heat embossed with clear Ranger Embossing Powder , so they would resist the inks.  I sponged the clouds using a die from Lawn Fawn Christmas Dreams which I cut in the middle of a piece of cardstock (I did a “partial” die cutting technique to eliminate the little tail for the bubbles)  The bunnies as well as the big carrot tops (Its the star beam) are from Lawn Fawn:  Upon A Star .  I will choose a sentiment for the inside when just the right occasion and recipient arises.
