As always you can enter our challenge as many times as you like and combine with any other challenges. Your make can be anything creative! You may even be the lucky random winner of the £20 CVC voucher.
All the details can be found hereFather's day here in the UK falls this year on Sunday 17th June and I have already made some designs and taken them down to Dotty's Teahouse where my cards are sold. However I had not yet made one for my own dear Dad so I have used this for my post today.
I have made my Dad lots of different Father's day cards over the years...here is one from a couple of years back where I used a photo of me as a child and made a mixed media background.
I wanted to use a different vintage photo for this year's card so I dug out my pack of Tim Holz Paper Dolls which Susan sells here at Country View crafts I also used the brilliant Visible Image Father definition stamp ***Remember that P+P is FREE in the UK for any order from Country View Crafts.***
I chose this fun boy paper doll and stamped my definition onto thick cream card.
I added some bister to a piece of watercolour paper and also stamped a couple of background stamps from my Visible Image stash.
I stamped elemental in black ink
and then added the ink splats in sepia archival.
I distressed the edges of the sentiment and added some of the small ink splats from the set.
Then it was time to put my card design together.
The Paper Doll looks so funny holding up my sentiment, I'm sure this will make my Dad smile. I added a few previously altered cogs from my stash to finish off my card.
I would like to enter my paper doll card into the following challenges;
Paper artsy paper dolls
Craft stamper take it make it 2/3 anything goes
Stamping sensations 1/3 anything goes
Crafty catz 2/3 anything goes
Thanks for stopping by and it would be lovely to see you entering our "written word" challenge over at Country View. I hope I might have given you a little inspiration today.
