Make a Wish !

Happy Sunday! I like to share a card with you that was inspired by the all-square sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the colour palette: red, yellow, green and aqua blue from the current Color Throwdown. This card features the Lawn Fawn's Fairy Friends stamp set. 
To create this card, I first started with an A2 size cardstock panel that was die cut from the largest stitched rectangle die. Then, I used the ink smooshing technique with distress inks in Candied Apple, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass. Next, was to die cut out the rounded square frames from white cardstock and ink blended with the distress inks in each colour. Afterwards, I stamped out the images, die cut them and coloured them in with copic markers. Then, I stamped the sentiment 'Make a Wish' from the Lawn Fawn Party Animal stamp set. It was double stamped first with memento tuxedo black ink then with versamark ink to be heat set with clear embossing powder.
Lastly, was to glue everything to the card panel. I applied double sided foam tape on the red and blue square frame to prop it up and give it some dimension on the card. Then, I adhere it to the card along with the flower and fairy images. As a final touch, I added clear wink of stella on the fairy wings. 
That completes this simple card.

- Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends
