Lawnscaping Challenge: Make it Shine sponsored by Lawn Fawn

Hi there!! Happy Monday to you all. Today is the first day of Christmas break or my son. I plan to sleep in but I know that will never happen since I haven’t slept past 5AM in ages!! Today’s challenge is a fun one! MAKE IT SHINE!!!!! I used some glossy accents, some bling and stickles to incorporate shine into my challenge! But there are many things you can do. Glitter, embossing, sparkly ribbon, etc…… We are sponsored by the fabulous Lawn Fawn!!! The lucky winner will receive a stamp set of their choice! 🙂 Here is what I created for this challenge:


I love the colors of the patterned paper. I colored the images with the INKTENSE watercolor pencils, which are just so much fun to use. I made a video HERE…… I lightened the color by adding water to card stock first and then using lots and lots and lots of water to blend.  Here is a close up of the SHINE!


Picket fence stickles on the muffin look sooooooo yummy!!! I’m hungry now…. 🙂

Be sure to head on over the Lawnscaping blog and check out what the rest of the design team made! And our Guest Designer’s project is sooo cute! Cutest tag ever I’d say!
