Hello, and Happy Friday!
I have been busy with graduation cards, Lay Dominican homework, doctor's appointments, and general life! Even though I have pics of the graduation cards, I haven't posted here yet. And I won't today, either! LOL Instead, I have a Father's Day Card, which fits the theme challenge on The Paper Players. I incorporated this week's SCS sketch and the palette from The ColourQ.
This is one of those cards that began with an idea, and morphed over time. I wanted to use a sail boat, but it was too big for the window. Instead of a boat, my hubby can look out on a tropical island from our boat house, right?? Overall, I am happy with it, but if I had time, I would tweak a thing or two. My card base is bordering blue. I still have a lot of it! I cut out a rectangle, then dry embossed a panel of whisper white with the wood grain folder. I sponged with bordering blue, basic gray, and soft suede. I had forgotten that a while back, I mistakenly put chocolate chip ink on my soft suede pad! Time to buy a new soft suede! My rectangle is oriented differently than the sketch, so I could use my new window die cut from SU. The scene behind is made with clouds from SU's "Send Me Soaring" and a palm tree from Lawn Fawn's "Life is Good." I sponged the water, hand drew the island, and colored the tree with markers. I know lucky limeade is not a part of the challenge, but shucks, had to use it! I tried some circles, as in the sketch, but didn't have a good sentiment to fit, so I used "Teeny Tiny Wishes" with the word and modern label punches. Next, instead of circles, I cut out these sea shells from the Lawn Fawn set. They are tiny! Wish I had a 1/2" circle punch! LOL Almost forgot, I added bakers twine at the top to finish it off.
Hope to finally post my graduation cards this weekend! Catch you later!
