Lawnscaping Challenge #98 - Create a Background

Hello there!  Time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  Challenge #98 is to create a background using your Lawn Fawn stamps, and the sponsor for this challenge is none other than the super fabulous Lawn Fawn

For my card today, I dug through my stamps looking for a fun way to use an unlikely stamp to create a background.  I had just gotten the Hello Sunshine stamp set, and had it sitting on my desk when I saw the long line stamp in the set and decided to make some fun wonky plaid as my background.  The best thing about this plaid is that is quick and easy and it's so cute!  You can easily get a great an imperfect result which lends so well to Lawn Fawn's whimsical style.  I simply inked up the line image in hot pink ink, stamping it several times horizontally on the card front, only eyeballing the distance between each stamp.  Once I had completed the horizontal stripes, I turned the card it's side and stamped what would be the vertical stripes.  I find it easier to turn the card front rather than try to stamp vertical stripes on a vertical card front (clear as mud, right?)  After I'd completed pink stripes in both directions, I chose another ink color and repeated the process, stamping fairly close to the pink lines.  I love that it is not perfect and a little wonky!  Once my plaid background was complete, I diecut and stamped a white stitched journaling card to create a fun scene.  The birds and balloons are popped up on foam tape.  So glad to have dies for this stamp set! :)

Oh Happy Day
