Fathers Day Card


Hi Everyone, a week on Sunday marks the Celebration of Fathers Day in both the UK and USA, so I thought it would be nice to share my DT card for Cheery Lynn Designs this week. My Dad loves being out in his garden and his cat is not usually far away from him, so I decided to create this little scene on my card.


I started off by using the Brick Embossing Plate and some Beige card stock. Once embossed I dry brushed Gesso onto my bricks to highlight them.


Next mounting onto Green Cardstock and stitching around the edges for detail.


My garden fence was shaded with a little Distress ink to shabby it up and a couple of layers of grass added.


My watering can I added a little gilding wax to highlight it. My flowers,leaves and dragonfly were shaded with Copics.


My sunflower was shaded also with Copics and I made the word Dad from my words Day and And as I have still to get the Cheery Lynn die - Dad.


Thanks for stopping by today and for the lovely comments you leave, I love to read them all. See you all soon.
