Inspiration-Lawnscaping challenge #30


Here are the details of this challenge:
Find inspiration in a fellow crafter you know, or even one you may not know. You can find inspiration in magazines, websites (Pinterest, Etsy), blogs, etc. The only requirement of this challenge is to give credit to the source of inspiration you use by linking to your source, whether it be a fellow crafter's blog, magazine picture, website picture, etc).

Here is the piece that I chose for my inspiration. It a piece of patterned paper by Fancy Pants from their newly released line called Childish Things. This paticular piece is called Playtime.

My favorite part of the paper is the little castle frame so that is what I chose to replicate. Here is what I made:

I used the large frame from Lawn Fawn's Fanciful Frames, but I had to modify it a bit. The large frame was too small to fit the castle so I stamped the top of the frame, moved down the paper a little and stamped the bottom of the frame, then filled in the lines on the side with a zig pen. I then masked the frame, stamped the castle and the sun (actually the top the ribbon from Admit One), and free-handed the hill and road. Last, I cut out the frame, adhered it to my card front and stamped my sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Claire's ABC's.

If you would like to play along, head on over to the Lawnscaping blog to get the details. Thanks for stopping by!
