Happy Fathers Day


Hello everyone! I'm honored to be Guest Designing for Sweet 'N Sassy this month! Today I'm sharing a card I made using this month's new release Shining Light. I used a center step card design. This card folds up to a perfect A2 size.



My image is stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics. My clouds are colored with the Copic Air Brush system using a cloud template from Rosy's Road Show. The secret to ANY cloud template you choose to use is to move it often so the angles and lines of the clouds look different. I like to use the template for the fist layer of color, and then remove it and use other light colors in the clouds such as W01 or B0000 for a more realistic cloud with more depth.

Onto my tan base I layered K&Co Blue Awning designer paper, and then stamped two of the sentiments from this fabulous set directly on the dp. The image is cut out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, and matted with SB Lacey Ovals. I laced twine through the frame and tied on a ships wheel charm as my only embellishment.

Thank you for stopping by! I'd love to have you visit my blog: Th-INK-ing of You!
