Lawnscaping FIT Blog Hop : Dark Blue

Morning friends!

It's the last Friday of the month which means it's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge FIT Blog Hop! We are using the color DARK BLUE and I'm so excited because it's my favorite kind of blue. 

Our Blog Hop is sponsored by the adorable online store, the Ink Road! You can win a $25 gift certificate by hopping along with the FIT designers and commenting on their blogs. Please be sure to leave your email address if you are the lucky winner.  Good Luck!

Here is the card I created for the hop today. 

I put my distress ink Faded Jeans to work on watercolor paper to make as dark as I liked. Next I used the largest of the Ocean Wave border dies to die the bottom of my blue piece. I stamped the largest snowflake from the Winter in the Park set around the blue piece using Versamark ink and then heat embossed using white embossing powder. I then stamped out the bench using Versafine black ink and fussy cut it out. I used my Marvy snow pen to color on snow on the bench and zapped it with my heat gun to help puff it up. I stamped the adorable robin from the Joy to the Woods set and colored him in using my Copic markers. I popped him on the bench using foam dots. I stamped the greeting from Winter in the Park using the same distress ink, Faded Jeans. 

Hope you enjoyed the card for today and were inspired. Please visit the DT blogs below and comment for a chance to win!
