3 Clovers Thursday Challenge Team are honoring fathers this week. The challenge is to make a Father's Day card with a little hardware. I had a whole 'nother card planned, but Papa Bear sort of took over my thoughts, so I just had to go with him instead!
I had been playing with this Gruffie image, practicing a techinque I learned in the copic class I took a while back...(yes, pictures still to come...) Marianne showed us how to make the pretty blue "halo" (that's what I call it anyway) that some stampers like to add around their image to make things "pop". It took me a while to get, but this is my first try and I really like it, reminds me somewhat of a watercolor look.
I am going to add a computer generated sentiment inside. Something like It's Your Day to Relax Papa Bear! If any of you have any better idea's I would love to hear them...I am never very good at coming up with catchy phrases!
I used the weekend sketch challenge from Lori Craig's blog HERE. This is a large image, so this card ended up being a 5 x 7 card.
Come join us this week at 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge. I would love to see some REAL hardware...mine was a little weak with just 3 little brads...but hey, it is hardware all the same!
