It’s always a bit weird celebrating fathers day as it’s so close to my dad’s birthday… So he gets all his days in one go! Ah well! He knows he’s loved all year, doesn’t need a special day for it really!
Here is the card I made for him.
I used the gelli plate to add distress inks and then a little bit of stencilling and the boat image stamped. I then found some sentiments to create the little word labels.
Next I made some paper that matched for the mount and added this to the dark jade cardstock with the little gems as accents.
Love how peaceful the card is.
I made a similar style of card for the hubby too… but a different focal image.
This was a piece of book print on which I added lots of distress oxides keeping to the lime and the blue. I really love twisted citron.
I used stamping and added water to blend the colours.
I then added the stamped floral image from Alpaca Pals. I used a Pitt pen in grey to add shading to the image which gave it some more emphasis. I then added the sentiment to the card blank and some gems for added bling.
This is also using the twisted citron distress oxide for the background. I added stencilling and stamping.
I then added the stamped fabric panel, a painted canvas tag and the embossed butterfly embellishment.
Love these two twisted oxide dominated cards.
And here are the daylight photos to show the colours properly…
Ooops… I forgot to finish off sharing the cards I made when following the basket challenge back in February… so I have a couple more to share today.
This one I started with the purple brushos which I applied to a wet piece of card. I then added two layers of music print, one of which I added paint to, and both I edged with black.
Next I added a fabric stamped element from the stash of embellishments I had placed in the basket. I also decided to alter the canvas sticker heart with embossing using the baked texture embossing powder. After adding a couple of layers, I then stamped the text stamp and added white embossing powder. This created an interesting effect when heated as it absorbed into the Deep Sea one.
I also added the white embossed sentiment.
Love how it came out.
This next one is completely different but also uses one of the canvas sticker hearts.
The background I stamped the Gummiapan text stamp in paint but made sure I only stamped part of the image. I then edged the panel with the same paint.
Next I used a piece of book print which I had used to remove some ink from a gelli plate when creating a previously shared card. I added this to a tag and then edged it with a posca pen.
The heart I coloured with the blue paint and then added the posca outline. Once again I added the white embossed sentiment and then some gems to finish off.
Love these Hearts… so versatile.
Photos didn’t show off the colours properly… so here are daylight photos…
