Lawnscaping Challenge #102 - Distress Addicts

Here is Lawnscaping Challenge #102 - Distress Addicts. Tim Holtz's Distress line products are my all time favorite. Below is the challenge photo:

And here is the card I made for this challenge:

I used Lawn Fawn's Flirty Frames and Stuck On You stamp sets as well as Flirty Frames matching die to make this card. For those succulent plants frames, I used a piece of watercolor paper and masking half of them with a post it tape. Then, I applied different green Distress ink pads and mini water mister to make green Distress background (see below):

Next, I mask the finished green part of the watercolor paper and applied different shade of brown Distress ink pads with mini mister to make the other half of the background. Below is the finished background:

I stamped the pots and succulents in between the green and brown Distress background with Versamark ink pad and clear embossed them. I stamped three little frames and gold embossed them from the Flirty Frames stamp set and cut them out with the matching dies. I also cut out the middle part of each frame and use the space as the guide to trace around the clear embossed succulent and pot.  Then, I cut out the succulent plants a little larger than the traced line and use black ink pad to wipe the ink on the paper. The clear embossed plants and pots will be resisted with the black ink. Below is the photo:

Then, I mount these resisted Distress plants on the gold frames and attached them with foam tapes on the kraft cardstock. I also brushed the edges of the kraft cardstock with Distress ink pads. Finish the card by gold embossing the "best wishes" greeting.
