PSC36: Father's Day Color Story

I know you are going to want to do the challenge we have this week @ Perfect Sentiments Challenge.  Father's Day is this weekend and you are going to need a card.


It's easy:  Create a card with a Father's Day Sentiment on the FRONT
and use the provided color story as inspiration for the design of your card




Father's-Day-Color-Story 
Here's my card:
 My favorite technique is distressing.  I scrubbed the edges of the background paper with my scissors & even made a little cut in the upper right corner.  I sponged distress ink around the edges of piece I added.  I made a "postcard" for the next layer using my Paris stamp set, then added a "stamp" I cut out from the Sunday paper a while back.  Made my tag with my sentiment. 
 I found this poem on the internet & printed it for the inside of my card. 
 Here's a close up of the silver metal tag I stamped on, tied it to the twine & then added my Father's Day sentiment.  

You know we have a very talented Design Team.  They are each listed on the left sidebar.  We have 2 guest designer's that I hope you'll visit and welcome.  

If you participate in our challenge and link your card up @ Perfect Sentiments challenge  you might win a FREE IMAGE from our sponsor or be chosen as the top 3 favorites for the week.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
