Lawn Fawn "Lovable Legends" | Unbelievable Birthday
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Two in a row. That's right folks. LOL. See? I am really trying. Perhaps my crafting is cyclical? Lots of posting, lots of making but never do they meet..
Today I have a simple to make birthday card, featuring Lawn Fawn's "Lovable Legends" stamps set.
To begin, I cut down a piece of 140lb cold press watercolour paper using the largest of the "Small Stitched Rectangles" die, I then used Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Inks to create my background. I just sponged them on randomly, much like the beginnings of a galaxy background. In the end you couldn't really see the Twisted Citron, but it did help create some nice highlights when I was sponging.
I used some clean water in my Distress Sprayer and spritzed the background to get that wonderful distressed look.
Once the panel was completely dry - not just mostly, but completely! - I prepped it with my powder tool and stamped the giant squid and the greeting with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Lawn Fawn's White embossing powder.
I then used Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to drop in some colour to the squid. My idea here was to create a somewhat transparent look with the purple acting as the shadows around his curves.
The stamp set comes with a long dotted wave border stamp, so I used that along with the Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink to create some tone-on-tone wave textures.
I had an extra frame from another project that coordinated well with the panel and (more importantly fit) so I adhered both to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
To finish it off, I covered the giant squid with clear Wink of Stella (and as you can see, I went a little bit heavy handed here). But I gotta have that glitter. I then added some clear and iridescent bubbles.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube!
