Lawnscaping Challenge # 15

 Due to deadline and challenge, the reveal of my giveaway will be in my NEXT post. Details  are at the end of this post.  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's here, it's here! I have been waiting for the arrival of my first Lawn Fawn Stamp set. Due to the Canada Post strike last month, I didn't get to use them for the CAS-ual Friday's challenge. Well, it finally came while I was on vacation!!  So I was eager to play with these fun stamps....and what better way to take part in the  Lawnscaping Challenge #15 ? This is the first time I play this challenge! YAY!
Since the theme is distressing, I came up with a simple design with the Cruising Through Life  set that I have.  I used 4 shades of Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create the rolling hills.....Ta-da!!
I enjoy cruising ...
By using the wavy piece of paper for masking, I distressed the "hills" with  Peel Paint, Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss. By moving the wavy paper in different levels and angles, you can easily create hills, waves, skylines....etc. I must say that I knew nothing about Distressing two years ago, but that all changed once I started to collect all the distress inks as I can get my hands on.

The winner of my giveaway (and "Did you know.." feature) will be announced on August 9, 10 AM Eastern Time. Thank you kindly for the patience.
