Lawnscaping Challenge #81- Create Your Own Background

Happy Monday! It is time again for another fun Lawnscaping Challenge. This challenge is to create a background using multiple stamps. I created a whimsical starry background using three different Lawn Fawn star stamps. I stamped the "Starry Backdrop" with Versamark ink on yellow cardstock and heat embossed the stars with clear embossing powder. I blended distressed inks on top of the yellow cardstock creating a fun sky. I then used pink ink and stamped stars from the "Critters Ever After" and "Blue Skies" stamp sets. I also inked the edges of the grass from the "Pink Lemonade" petite paper pack. The raccoon and mushrooms are from the "Critters in the Forest" stamp set, I love all the different animals in this set. The thank you bubble, from the "Many Thanks" stamp set, is in perfect proportion to the raccoon. 

Materials Used:
Blue Skies
Critters Ever After
Critters in the Forest
Many Thanks
Pink Lemonade Petite Paper Pack
Starry Backdrop

The sponsor of this challenge is Simon Says Stamp. The winner of the challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate. Good luck!
