I didn’t put in the title but this is my fourth entry for Lawn Fawnatics current challenge (#25). I just have a bit of time this week and managed to get more done than I had hoped, which is great because I’m slowly widdling down my neverending to-use pile.
I love that the current theme is a rainbow theme. Since this month is also Lawn Fawn’s birthday, I wanted to make a birthday card. When I think of birthdays, I think of balloons. So I wanted to make a card with rainbow balloons.
I used Lawn Fawn’s Party Animal stamp set. I don’t usually do this for cards but I decided to take that single balloon stamp, make masks of it, and repeatedly stamp it for my background. I ended up making 4 masks with Inkadinkado Masking Paper and through them out at the end. The process masking and stamping the whole panel took me a while but it feel it gives a nice effect.
The balloons were coloured with Copic Markers: Y02, Y06, V15, V17, YG06, YG09, YR16, YR07, R29, R27, B37, B34.
I stamped each animal image with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and cut them out. I used the following Copic colours:
Fox: R20, E08, E15, E18, E53, E50
Deer: R20, E49, E47, E43, E41
Bear: E29, E25, E21
I wanted some sort of floor for the animals to be standing on so I chose a neutral grey card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug in the Gemstone We R Memory Keepers Next Level Embossing Folder to create some subtle texture. I adhered the panel to the piece with the stamped balloons.
Here’s the longest run on sentence ever- I die cut the largest rectangle from MFT’s Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames dies, cut down a piece of acetate to fit, glued my animals to the front, heat embossed the sentiment with Lawn Fawn White Embossing Powder, applied my 3M foam tape to the back, filled my shaker card with confetti, sequins, and chunky glitter, and adhered the whole front panel to a card base.
