This Sunday is Father's Day in New Zealand, so I thought I'd better make a card for my dad. I decided to use the sketch from Retro Sketches and the inspiration from Curtain Call to use leaves.
I started with a black card base then used the Direct to Paper technique to color some white cardstock with various Distress Inks, followed by some water flicked onto the panels. I then cut a whole bunch of flags in the different colors. The largest flag was white-embossed with the sentiment.
The leaves were stamped several times until I got something I was happy with. This version was first stamped with Shabby Shutters and Rusty Hinge but that looked too pale. So I went over the same images with Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge and that looked much better. To finish it off, I put some Glossy Accents on the leaves.
Thanks for visiting.
