Lawn Fawn May Inspiration Week - Sunny Skies

Welcome!!
So today starts May inspiration week and we are featuring a cute set that is already one of my favorites. It's bright, happy and versatile, I LOVE it! The sentiments are big and gorgeous and, what about that smiley faces? So cute!!

I have lots of ideas in my head for making cards with this set but I finally made this card because I wanted to try distress inks with water and because I want to show you how to stamp that cute moon using this set. The stars are from Bake me a Cake and Critters Ever After.


I colored it using Distress Inks, I stamped the pad on an acrylic block, added water with a brush and colored with it.

Here's how the moon looked before I cut it (sorry, it's a phone pic). First, stamp the sun, then ink the sun again and clean the ink from the sun's radiance, or use a marker to ink only the circle. Finally, stamp one of the smiley faces and you're done :)
I hope you like it!!


Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I have another card for tomorrow using another new set ;)
