I made this card to enter in the Lawnscaping Challenge #131 Off Kilter. I was inspired by Lawn Fawn’s new Yay Kites stamp set. I do not own that set yet, so I made due with stamps I already own.
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started this card by cutting a panel of water color paper to 4.25” x 5.5”. I then cut that panel at an angle on my paper trimmer. I stamped all my images on the angled panel with grey ink. I covered the images with masks and created my background. I stamped the clouds from Partly Cloudy on some Post It tape close together to make a DIY cloudy border stencil. I added some Tumbled Glass Distress ink with a mini inking tool. I stared on the DIY stencil and brushed the ink out slightly. I moved the DIY stencil down and repeated the process. When, I was done with the background on the angled panel, I water colored the mouse and kite with Distress Inks.
I prepared my card base next. I stamped the custom sentiment in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and added the wind lines. It was looking a little bare, so I add some cloudy borders with my DIY stencil. I rubbed the Tumbled Glass ink pad on the edges of the card base and the angled panel. Lastly I attached the angled panel to the card base with fun foam.
