Yall know Im a last minute kind of girl so its no surprise I spent yesterday making Fathers Day cards right?!LOL!! I usually put off masculine cards since they are not as fun to make for me...except this card! I love how this turned out and it was actually alot of fun coloring it. I used this image by Crissy Armstrong available at Squigglefly. Ive been trying to decide if I wanted to use this image for bday or Fathers day for Danny. Its perfect since Danny is a Leo and of course the sign for Leo is a lion and we have 3 little lions! Maybe before August Crissy will come up with another "perfect image"!LOL! I love her images and she also a master at coloring so I visit her blog often-tons of inspiration available!LOL! I found this dotty background technique and decided to try it. My background didnt turn out exactly like I planned but Im still happy with it for a first try. Okay so I colored the image using copics y32, e30, e31, e42, e43, e44, and e49 for their fur and e04 and e09 for the noses. For the dotted background I used bg78, 75, 72, w3, w1, and w0. After I had my image colored I went looking for dp and stumbled across this Recollections dp from Michaels. I LOVED this dp in the fall -it was my fave but I also found that the colors in it were great for masculine cards! I paired the dp with a kraft base for Jeanie's TKT. Since this is a masculine card and the image is large I didnt want to embelish too much so I just colored a few dew drops and added them to the card. Thats its for me today! Hope all the Fathers out there have a wonderful day!
