As it is the first of the month I am sharing my DT project with you for Country View Challenges. For June the theme is to "Use Crackle" in your work. So it is time to get out the crackle pastes, paint, stamps, textures and anything else which could be used to add some crackle texture or even faux crackle texture to your work. Please pop over to our challenge here to find out all the details and join in with the fun. You could even be lucky enough to win a £20 gift voucher from our sponsor, Country View Crafts.
As June is the month in which we celebrate Father's day on 19th I decided to make Dad cards for both my inspirational pieces. The first one I am sharing today is the card I have made for my own Dad for Father's Day.
I use the grey board back of a used pad of mixed media card and cut it into 4 pieces.
I took one piece and added some Fresco paints in random splodges.
Now that I had my base finished it was time to think about my card design.
I have some fun childhood photos which I love to use so I printed off this one of me....I was probably around 3 years old in it, in our garden in Peckham, London where we lived until 1979.
I stuck it under the brilliant Cheery Lynn film set die cut.
I got together some snippets of TH papers and some old vintage book pages and die cuts and made my embellishments.
Here is my finished card
Here are some close ups....yummy crackle
and cheeky faced me ;0)
Cheery Lynn lots of layers
Anything but cute celebrate your style.....I LOVE adding texture to my work so this piece really celebrates my style!

My 2nd DT post for Country View Challenges will be on 27th June so if you would like to see the 2nd Dad crackle card I made do pop back.. A little hint is that for the 2nd one I used a faux crackle effect....it looks very realistic.
Thanks for visiting me today and for all the kind comments you take the time to leave me.
Bye for now,
