A Week Late!

My card for my Dad for Fathers Day was a week late as they were visiting my brother and his kids for the weekend. Good job really as I was actually late in making the card! So here it is!

I've used some random card from my stash for the panel and I think some Bazzill cardstock for the base.  The image is from Dustin Pike (was in the mega deal from a few months ago) and I've coloured it with Promarkers plus glossy accents for the eyes.

I've handwritten the sentiment, added faux stitching around the edge of the image, made some fake brads with a Sharpie marker and glossy accents (quick and not in the least bit messy!) and finally used some garden twine for a bloke touch!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Dustin Pike:  All Tied Up
Critter Sketch:  Sketch Used
Dream Valley Challenges:  Things With Wings
Robyns Fetish:  No Flowers
Dilly Beans:  Dots

  • Image:  Dustin Pike, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers:  From my stash
  • Sentiment:  Handwritten
  • Everything else:  My stash
