Hi to all you sweet bloggers out there,
well I've got a 'male' card finally done for Father's Day! Little bit out of the old comfort zone but I'm fairly pleased with it Lol! As uber critical as usual though I can always think of things I could have done better, but a) ran out of time and b) was trying to be clever and it didn't go according to plan! Therefore things are a bit wonky and it has an air of being 'thrown together'. I say it was meant to look like that for the manly rough and ready impression! Who am I kidding? The image looks a bit washed out on the photo, the colours are more vibrant than that, and I'm blaming my dad for the colour of the tractor - I stupidly asked him what his favourite all time tractor is (he's been a tractor driver for more years than he cares to remember) and he said a little grey one! I should have just gone with what colour I like - red! I did try to add some sparkle with a silver gel pen on lights etc but that doesn't really show on the picture. Needless to say after all that, Dad will adore it!!
I did follow the sketch from The Sweet Stop this week and travelled it up the easel. Of course I couldn't find a Father's Day sentiment in my ever growing stash (probably only dreamt I have one in the first place!) so had to make a rather amaturish one up at the last min!
Supplies: SU; cardstock and double sided paper, photo corner punch, scallop punch, 'for you' sentiment
LOTV Pride and Joy stamp (lent to me by my fab friend Fleur - what would I do without u?!xx)
TH Distress inks
Nesties labels two
string, buttons and scrim from stash
