Takin' a Lil Stroll

Are you taking the Lizzie Anne Blog Stroll? If you're not, then you should! :) If you get the LAD newsletter, you know that all of the Design Team is posting their favorite June LAD card today, so now's the time to do some blurfing (that's blog surfing, if you're new to this!) for some pretty awesome cards! If you didn't get the newsletter, well, you know now anyways! LOL

I picked this card because I love the background technique that I used on it. I call it my Fabreeze technique! It's like the water spritzing technique on glossy paper, but with Fabreeze instead. It also gives it a nice April Fresh fragrance! LOL

I discovered this idea while making a Halloween card ages ago, when I couldn't find a water spritzer. I wanted to hurry up before the ink dried, and Fabreeze was the only thing I could find! So I sprayed and it worked beautifully, and had the added benefit of the nice smell! :)

All I did was stamp the lotus flower (from the Far East stamp set) on the glossy cardstock with Black Stazon, then sponge on color. I was looking for a sunrise effect, so from the bottom I sponged Rose Red, then Regal Rose, then Pumpkin Pie. After it was all blended like I wanted it, I lightly sprayed the Fabreeze all over the image. It created the "rain drop" effect, that I think is so pretty with a solid black stamped image.

I stamped half of the sentiment (from the Say it in Script stamp set) and punched it with my SU! Key Tag Punch, and folded it over the top of the largest layer. Then, I stamped the branch image on the Pumpkin card base. Lastly, I tied the May Arts ribbon around, and layered the card together.

I hope that you like what you saw, and that you continue on with the stroll. If you didn't get the newsletter, then you can always click HERE, to get the full DT list. This is just the first bit of fun that the LAD girls have planned in preparation to their AWESOME summer release AND their second birthday! For the official schedule of events, check out THIS LINK!

Now, I'll be back later with another MFTeaser. See ya then!
