Lawn Fawn: Claw-some Beary Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn Claw-some Beary Birthday Card by Maria Byrd |

I'm excited about today's project since I get to play with Lawn Fawn You're Claw-some and my new Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pen.  This stamp set reminded me when I used to spend hours playing claw games in hopes of winning a stuffed animal.  Inspired by that special memory, this will be my first "masculine" card.

To start, I stamped the images on a cold press watercolor paper using Versafine Ink in Onyx Black. I then used two colors for each bear (remember Beanie Baby Garcia craze in the 90s?).  Eyes were tipped with Sakura Black Glaze and applied Glossy Accents on two bears.  When those were dry, Distress Glaze was lightly rubbed to seal the watercolor.

The textured blue cardstock was die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle frame. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink in Clear, heat embossed it in white, brushed with Zig Wink of Stella, added a vellum layer, and raised it with foam tape.  The plain blue background tamed the wild colors and gave the flexibility of being a masculine birthday card despite the pinks. As always, the finished design is mounted on Neenah heavyweight cardstock cut to A2 size.
