Ah.... the weekend

It's Friday! And I've gotten quite a bit of crafting done lately so I thought I'd pop in and share a card I made for two current challenges:


Simon Says Stamp is a pretty easy challenge - 'stamp it' (no digi images allowed!), but the Lawnscaping one is always tough, so I thought it would be a fun to give it a go.  I recently bought some Lawn Fawn steps that have been sitting  on my desk begging to be played with, so this was perfect!

To create my one layer card, I used a really heavy card stock and stamped my images.  I knew I wanted to use the cogs down the side so I had masked off that area to play with later.  Once everything was stamped, I used my prismacolor pencils to color it all in.  I love my copics, but for a one layer card, I didn't want to see the marker bleed through.  Initially I thought I'd use some embossing paste for the cogs, but decided to use embossing powders and a faux cloisonné  technique I learned recently. (I learned the technique with embossing paste, but just skipped that step so it was a more flat on the card front.)

Have a great weekend!
