Today I’m sharing my project for the current Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, and that is why the title of the blog post is Fiesta Veraniega (Summer Party) because the challenge is about parties.
To decorate the bottles I used Lawn Fawn “On the Beach” stamps and dies. I love the fox and the bear tanning. I wish I could, but I have very pale skin and I sunburn easily.
First I stamped the images on Bristol paper using Versafine Onyx black ink and colored everything with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then, I used coordinating dies to die cut the images.
I cut strips of blue and kraft color cardstock and then used Mama Elephant “Ocean Waves Trio” dies for the sea and Lawn Fawn “Stitched Hillside Borders” dies for the sand. To give more texture to the sandy pieces, I splattered some Gathered Twigs and Picket Fence Distress Inks mixed with water as well as a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls in copper color. Next, I wrapped the bottles and added the images. Maybe it is a busy scene, especially for a bottle decoration, but I love it!!
I made some straw decorations too. I thought it would be nice to have beach umbrellas for the critters. To make them I used Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circle Stackables” dies. I used the biggest die on Bristol paper and then did some masking to ink the sectors. I used Abandoned Coral, Mermaid Lagoon and Scattered Straw Distress Inks.
Then I scored the pieces and, after die cutting a circle in the middle, I cut them in half (following the black line I drew in the picture) and glued the two pieces together. Last, I folded the flaps using the stitching line. I love how the beach umbrellas turned out!
Such a cool and sweet take on our “Perfect for a Party” challenge! Love your bottle design and awesome coloring! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us at the Lawnfawnatics Challenge! /Karin
