Hey there, I hope you're having a good week so far! Work deadlines and revision for upcoming exams have left little time for stamping but I did get the chance to sit down over the weekend to make a card for my dad's birthday - it's just taken me three days to get around to posting it!
I was totally uninspired when I sat down to make it, as is usually the way when I have to tackle a card for the opposite sex, so I used a few challenges for inspiration:
Stacey's Stamping Stage colour challenge:
... and the Card Positioning Systems sketch:
And this is what I came up with - one of Karen Lockhart's fabulous-to-colour images (how inviting does this chair look?!) paired with a setiment so apt for a workaholic like my dad!
Stamps: Adirondack Chair/Sentiment (Lockhart stamps)
Card: Kraft/Stamper's Select White(PTI)/Night of Navy(SU)/Lagoon (Memory Box)
Ink: Memento black
Other: Copic Sketch Markers/Night of Navy ribbon(SU)/Cuttlebug embossing folder/corner chomper/linen thread(SU)/Enchanted Evening button(PTI)
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have time to sit back and relax too!
