Chari here, and I'm happy to be back today with another Guest Designer project for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog! I hope you are all enjoying the new Lawn Fawn goodies now that they are available. Today I have a fun Birthday card for you with a bit more of a masculine tone using the new Loveable Legends set. This set is so fun with the images of Nessie, the Kracken and Bigfoot all in that cute Lawn Fawn style.
I used a woodgrain paper from My Mind's Eye for my background to set the masculine tone. I was going for a sort of nautical feel so I pulled out the Blue Jay and Chili Pepper cardstock to cut the stitched frame and scalloped circle from. I chose a blue plaid from the Perfectly Plaid collection for the background of my frame and layered some die cut vellum waves over top.
I stamped Nessie and his party hat on cream colored cardstock to mute my copic coloring just slightly adding some white gel pen dot details. I used some Mermaid cardstock and vellum along the bottom, also cut with the ocean wave border dies and stamped my sentiment with Peacock ink. I had to get a little creative with my sentiment, there is not a "happy" stamp in this set, so I swipped that part of my sentiment from the Little Bundle set and did some selective inking. Once I had Nessie settled into the vellum waves I finished assembling my card using some Liberty Lawn Trimmings twine, little water splashes stamped in new Merman (my new favorite) and some sparkle white Doodlebug sprinkle embellishments.
Thanks to Vanessa and her team for having me this month, it has been a joy to share my projects with you. Happy Stamping! :)
