Lawnscaping #132 - Distress Mania!

 Hi everyone! It's time again for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!

The challenge is to use some sort of distressing on your project. I decided to use some distress inks to create a water scene for my mermaid slider card!

 I don't usually use distress inks, but I really like the effect that you can get by adding water. Next time I'll try to have smaller water splashes! :) 

This card features Lawn Fawn's "Mermaid For You," "Stitched Scalloped Border," "Yay, Kites," and "Slide On Over." Be prepared - there may be a lot more slider cards in the future! :)

The cards above show the mermaid "swimming" through the ocean on her narwal! My two year old daughter is obsessed with the new mermaid stamp set and she is always asking to color pictures of mermaids! She's so cute! 

Here is a close up on the mermaid and the distressed ocean waves:

Those scritpy words and dies are my favorite! I'm sure that I will be using those a lot in future cards, as well! :)

I hope that you're able to play along with the challenge! The winner will receive a free stamp set of their choice from Lawn Fawn!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! :)
