Hello and Good Morning!
I was delighted when Ren-Yi and the team asked me to be a Guest Designer over at the 'Do You Stack Up?! Challenge Blog. Each Thursday brings a new fabulous Challenge and sponsor and this week it's to create a card or project 'FOR A MAN OR BOY' - perfect for Fathers Day on Sunday!
I was privileged to be able to use some wonderful images on my card today courtesy of 'MelonHeadz Illustrating'.
I used the 'Daddy's Girl' sentiment to create my own custom background paper - so easy to do and looks really effective. Some red and white twill cut into a banner shape at the bottom completes my background. I decided to use the adorable 'Father and Daughter' image as my focal point, printing onto cream cardstock, paper piecing their sweet clothes and colouring them using my Copic markers. I used my oval nesties to create the oval shape for the main image and for the Kraft mat, which I embossed with a Sizzix plaid embossing folder.
I simply printed the 'Dad Heart' image to the size of my liking, cut out and sponged with Distress Ink. I also added some red gems and a red button and twine as a finishing touch.
I hope you like my creation today and that you will have the opportunity to make something and come join us!! You can find FULL details for this challenge AND all the inspiring creations by the DYSU DT ladies over on the 'DYSU blog'.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!!
