Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there, hope they have a very special day :) Here's one of the father's day cards I made (you know how it is... as a cardmakers you need to make at least three to cover the father figures in the family)...
So the fabulously talented designer Betsy Veldmen has set a challenge to find a piece of men's wear that inspires you and to create a project based on that piece. I just had to have a go...
This is the shirt I picked as inspiration, the patterns are fab, but what I really love is the subtle white embroidery of flowers! I tried to mimic this with a little heat embossing...
The stripes and arglye have been stamped in distress inks and I created the sentiment based on the shirt label on the back.
Supplies: Patterned Paper: look no patterned paper (shock); WRMK: textured cardstock;
Stamps: Papertrey Ink: father knows best; a little argyle; background basics: retro; in bloom;
Ink: Ranger distress inks: stormy sky; tumbled glass; clear embossing;
Other: Embossing powder: white; PTI: buttons; stitch tracer; 3D adhesive foam;
The colours were perfect for the PDCC #34 challenge this week and the design was inspired by Get Sketchy #43
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day BiG HuGs Kim :)
