Ferris Wheel Sunset

July 16, 2017

A few weeks ago, I made a bunch of ink smooshed backgrounds. I made this card using one and will be entering it in the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge.





Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card a few weeks ago by making the ink smooshed background. Using Distress Inks and an acrylic block, I applied color to some water color paper. I let the block sit on the paper for at least five minutes to get the intense color. I love the results of this technique. Once, I removed the block, I set the panel aside to air.

I love the Admit One stamp set from Lawn Fawn and colorful backgrounds. I stamped the Ferris Wheel and sentiment in black ink. I added the ground with a black Sharpie. I adhered this panel to an orange card base.

Because of the colored card base, I decided to add a liner to the inside. I added some tickets to the bottom of the liner for added interest.
