Fathers Day

I had another order this week from my Friend Kerry she needed a Father's Day card and an Anniversay.

The theme for ther Fathers Day card was either DIY disaster or England and I know she adores Forever Friends so here is my design.

How lucky was I when I went to my Niece Kerry's for some crafting she had this perfect Forever Friend image and so kingly let me borrow it!!!

I have coloured this image with my Copics as the Red's are much brighter in these than pro markers either that or I'm using the wrong colours!!  lol

Added glossy accents to his little nose which has made it a bit bigger!!! lol also to the teddy on the arch.

Used plain card in Red and black and the main distressed look paper of a sheet from Tim Holtz. 

Did a border around the image and added some gold pearls, some ribbon and buttons to finish.  Can't be added all the flowers and fussy bits can you.

The middle I have inked this perfect Dad sentiment and distressed it.

I am entering the following challenges:

Delightful Challenge - One for the boys
Fussy and Fancy - Boys/Attitude
DYSU - Boys/men
Pink Elephant - Masculine
Dream Valley - Special Guy
Pan Pastels - Fathers Day

Don't forget to enter my "Thank You" Candy you can find it here!

Thats it I now need to make my Father's Day card!! lol

Always at the last minute!

Have a wonderful weekend Love Chanelle xxx
