Don't Whirry, Be Happy

Don't Whirry card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn FawnI've had Lawn Fawn's So Smooth stamp set in my collection for a while, but hadn't inked it up until inspiration struck with the current Lawnscaping challenge.  I used the mood board's color scheme as the basis for this cheerful design.

I colored the blender, milk carton, and banana peel with Copic markers, then cut them out with the matching die. To be honest, I colored the blender twice since the first one got messed up when I was die cutting.  Ugh . . .  I arranged the trio of images on a panel watercolored with aqua paint, then dabbed with a baby wipe through a stencil to get the dotty pattern.  The set's "don't whirry, be happy" sentiment was stamped above the grouping of images in black ink.  I added a trio of silver sequins as an accent.  The finished panel was matted on a coordinating aqua card base.

Materials Used:
So Smooth stamp set, So Smooth dies (Lawn Fawn); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic);Hawaiian Shores cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Die-namics Blueprints 21 dies (My Favorite Things); stencil (Studio Calico); watercolors, silver sequins (Michaels); foam tape
