2 challenges in 1

Hello again!  Today I’m played along with challenges to create my card –  Lawn Fawntatics and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

The Lawn Fawnatics challenge is to try a new technique.

And the Simon Says Stamp challenge is to make your own background.

So I pulled out a couple of my Lawn Fawn sets.  Home Sweet Home and A Birdie Told Me.

I created my own background using a technique that I have never done but wanted to.  Watercolor.

LF SSS CARD 3It was fun to do!  I’ve always been a little too nervous to try watercolor for a background.  But that’s what a challenge is all about, right? It was time to be brave lol.  I stamped the cute little heart, star and flower images (A Birdie Told Me) on top of the dried watercolor to create the background.

Then added sequins to complete the fun theme of the card.
