Lawnfawnatics Watercolor Challenge #7


Instagram: @amypeach1978

My entry for the current Lawnfawnatics challenge #7--watercolor.  I made an ombré background with my Gansai Tambi watercolors and stamped my leaves on the extra green pieces. I popped some of the leaves up on foam tape for dimension. It all came together cohesively when I added the two little birds from Little Bundle and colored them in bright yellow to create a visual triangle with the yellow thank you border, which I die cut from Watercolor Wishes paper.

Supplies (all by Lawn Fawn, unless otherwise noted):
Hang In There stamps and dies
Little Bundle stamps and dies (birds)
Grassy Border die
Thank You a Border die
Everyday Sentiment Banner die
Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die
Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables die
Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables die
Watercolor Wishes petite paper pack
Black Licorice cardstock
Other: Gansai Tambi watercolors, watercolor cardstock, black Ranger Enamel Accents, white fine detail embossing powder, foam tape by Scotch 3m, Versamark ink

 I may or my not have been watching for the mailman allllll day until 3:00 when my goodies finally arrived haha. :) I have been thinking about paper piecing her little plaid dress for a month. As you can see, I fussy cut the bike because I colored it and when I went to cut it out, the die moved and it looked weird and uneven. That went well until I accidentally snipped off the front wheel! Oh well, a little paper surgery is all it took to get her rolling again. :)
