I worked up a Father's Day card and will be entering it in the following challenges: Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Mod Squad Blog Challenge, Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge and the Scrapy Land Blog Challenge.
I used hot sizzlin' summer colors on my card. The background was done on glossy paper and I used hot colors along with the Tiny Textures stamp set from Gina K. Designs. The sentiment and chair image are from the Dad's Day set from Lawn Fawn.
The chair image was popped up over the sentiment which was die cut from jelly bean green card stock with a banner die by Cheery Lynn Designs. I then layered that banner onto card stock in a similar blue color as the ink on the card. The base of the card was in sweet mango card stock and the layer next to that was sweet corn yellow card stock. All the inks and card stock are from Gina K. Designs. I originally had the chair stamped in Tomato Soup dye ink but later I decided I preferred the black chair instead. It went well with the black texture I had stamped over the paint swipes images.
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
Card Maker's Stacker's Nesting Dies A2 size ST 014
Pierced Banners DL303
It is very appropriate to use hot sizzlin' colors as we are getting up into the 90's these days. Our AC gets turned on mid afternoon now and runs all night. By morning it seems cool enough to leave it off for awhile. So if inside we remain fairly comfy. I hope you are staying cool too if the hot weather is affecting you. And, of course, this triggers T-storms so it is very humid as well! At any rate, have a great weekend.
