Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 20 - Fun With Food! So Smooth


Hello and welcome. Today's card has been inspired and entered in Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #20 - Fun with food! It was a great way to use these awesome newly acquired stamps sets that feature all healthy and wholesome plant based food. Vegan and plant based of course - it's delicious and not malicious to your health, animals and the planet. 



Yay! My card was featured on the Fun With Food Challenge #20. Thanks Lawn Fawn. :) 


The stamp sets I have used are, So Smooth, Thanks a Bushel, Make Lemonade, Happy Summer, Aloha. The dies used are Palm Trees and the new You're Sweet line border. I have also used the Large stitched rectangle die on the front panel card base.

These sets are so much fun to colour in and put together, all colourful and makes a stunning display overall. I was pleasantly surprised and fell in love with the So Smooth set as it contained a Vegan option incorporating Almond Milk - props to the designer for making this set. It's so refreshing and promising to see this, especially in stamp sets. All the images have been coloured in with copic markers and first stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Copic Xpress it blend cardstock.


The fruits inside the blender has been achieved by making a mask of the bananas and strawberries on a post it note and hand cutting them out to use as masks over the stamped image to gradually build up the layout. It's such a great technique to use to make your own custom scenes with any stamped images. I have added glossy accents over the top to emulate the glass effect when dried, hard  to see on the photos but it adds so much interest to the image in person.


I have used my electronic cutter machine to cut out the images and is so helpful especially with so many images and saves time as colouring can take some time too.

The images have been popped up with foam dimensionals to make them all stand out and add depth. The background has been ink blended with some water droplets on smooth Bristol card stock using Ranger distress inks, Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Dried Marigold, just love this colour combination as it goes so well with many scenes especially for a summer feel.

I have added in the palm leaves from Palm Trees dies to add to the summer feel and works well framing the die cut sentiment using the You're Sweet line border die. To add depth to the sentiment it has been die cut three times and adhered together. This makes it stand out better as it's raised up. The apostrophe is very fiddly so a tool pick or tweezer helps to position it on there. It's a great die with many possibilities and was even thinking of doing something with the negative die cut space. Perhaps for next time as it would be great for a shaker window. 


The sentiment underneath is from So Smooth stamp set, that has been white heat embossed using Ranger super fine detail white embossing powder.  It always works a treat and perfect for fine detailed sentiments. The sentiment is just perfect for the theme as well as the recipient of the card.

I hope you have enjoyed and found inspiration. The Lawn Fawnatics food challenge is a lot of fun to take part in, and good to see a few healthy options on there, it would be nice to think that most of the foods are the Vegan version hehe.
