Colored Pencil Feathers

Today I have a tutorial for you using colored pencils on dark colored cardstock.  I was actually inspired by a pair of pajama pants I own that is a dark grey with pastel feathers on them.  Inspiration can be found just about anywhere.


Check out the video below to see how I created this card.  Or you can watch it HERE on My YouTube channel or the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel.

Here is another look at the card and that cool feather texture created with the colored pencils.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week: Plan On It: Birthday + Zig Zag Stackables

Hello! It's the last day of Lawn Fawn Inspiration week and today's featured set is the Plan On It: Birthday set along with the zig zag stackables, which I absolutely love.


I'm not a planner person but the planner sets are still super cute and can be used on projects other than planners.  I paired images from the Plan On It: Birthday set with a sentiment from Happy happy happy to create a fun birthday card. I used the sentiment along with the large candle in this set to build a "cake" shape.  I cut some glitter paper to create a scalloped cake stand for it to sit on and embellished it with some twine and stickles on the candle flames.


I also used the number in the Plan On It: Birthday set to create the background for my card.  I cut some watercolor wishes paper with the Cross stitched rectangle then stamped the numbers around with some fresh lavender ink. I matted my top panel on a glitter scalloped rectangle  to tie in with the cake stand.


I really love the zig zag stackables, especially the rectangles.  I have really found myself reaching for them often to pair with my stitched rectangles.  For this card I kept it very simple, white on white one white. :) I white embossed the button from Sewn With Love on various colors of cardstock and arranged them on my card with a heart in the center.  I did the same for the "cute" part of my sentiment and I really think it pops off the white card base.


I just love all the white layers, its subtle but still has interest and dimension.  Be sure to check out the Lawn Fawn blog for more projects!

Lawn Fawn April Inspiration Week: Year Seven

Hello! Lawn Fawn April Inspiration week continues today with Year Seven.  This little piñata is so fun!


I created a fun fringe background to mimic the look of a piñata by inking white cardstock with the colors of ink I wanted to match with my coloring.  Then I used fringe scissors to cut the paper and create this fun look. I layered my cut strips onto a rectangle mat and mounted it onto a card base.


I colored my piñata to match the ink colors then hung him from the top of the card with some black licorice twine.  For the sentiment I used one of the Fancy Folded banners and then finished it off by sprinkling the die cut candy pieces around the card.
