Lawnscaping Challenge #118 - In with the Old

**this is my 2nd post of the day! to see my Fawny Holiday Week Day 1 card, scroll down or click here! squeal!*

today is a brand new Lawnscaping Challenge! yay!! it's my favorite way to start a monday! actually, it's the only acceptable way to start a monday, if you ask me!

for this challenge, we are tasking you to dust off some of those older, or unused stamp sets and make a card! it couldn't be easier! ha!

for my card, i used the older, but still very much loved, Admit One stamp set and the sentiment is from the super fun 4th of July stamp set! :) 

i LOVE it!! and although i really do love this set still, i sometimes reach for other, newer sets instead! the newness draws me in!! ha! and i'm pretty sure i've never actually used that merry go round image! shame! i know!! (that ferris wheel always gets me first, thought, i just LOVE it!)

ok, so i did some light, very minimal swooshes (that's a technical term) of watercolor on my card base. i used Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks. I swiped them across my kraft mat, and then sprayed with water. I placed my card front on top of the watercolor mess and quickly and lightly lifted my card up! look at that pretty color! i just love it!

i stamped the image on top once it was dry and then added some triangles with embossing paste and a stencil! LOVE how this came out!

this week we're sponsored by lawn fawn! so get your card making on, and you could win a stamp set of your choice! :)
