Lawn Fawnatics Challenge "Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song"

Hello, everyone. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day!

Today's card is for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge "Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song". This one took me a while. Not gonna lie, I was super intimidated by the stuff the design team put out for this challenge. Their cards are absolutely amazing!

The movie I chose was "Mary Poppins", I wanted to do something I hadn't yet seen on the entries and something that would let me use some of the sets that were hanging out in my stash that I hadn't opened yet. (Crazy, right?)

All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I started by stamping the umbrella from "Elphie Selfie" and masking that off, I then stamped one of the fairies from "Fairy Friends", but made sure to not ink up her wings.

For the houses and trees I stamped the images from "Happy Village" with a bit of masking to make the front layer a single piece. I coloured all the images with Copic markers. I added some clear Wink of Stella over her dress and the umbrella.

For my background panel, I sponged Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Ink to create my twilight sky. I knew that the front row of house was going to be popped up, so I sponged a bit of Forest Moss to create the ground.

Once the ink was completely dry, I splattered some White Gold from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors palette to create some soft stars.

I adhered the back layer of trees with the larger cluster of houses directly to the panel and popped up the front row with some foam tape. I popped up the top half of Mary Poppins with more foam tape, but used Scor tape to adhere her lower half to the panel. I wanted her to appear to be coming out of the picture as though she were flying up and away from the houses, but the effect did not translate well to camera. In person you get the idea.

The greeting from "Fairy Friends" was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Lawn Fawn's Silver embossing powder.

I then mounted the panel to a piece of dark blue cardstock with foam tape and adhered the whole lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube! Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
