Hi everyone, Lynne here, and today I have a mixed media Father's Day card for you. Actually, it would also work very well as a Birthday Card.
Pretty rugged, isn't it?!! I decided to use more papers from Maja Design....love!!! And oh so perfect for this card. I added a lot of inking, and many layers, but I kept the background pretty simple.
The layers include a die cut Tim Holtz Weathered Clock, as well as a few chippies from Recollections. The variety of the base color, affected the look of the blue and brown mists I used. I also added a Prima Doily diecut from one of the papers. To get the weathered look on the edges of the papers and flowers, I misted onto my craft mat, and then dragged the papers and flowers through it. I thought I should mention, that I actually like the backside of the Timmy clock diecut better than the front, so I flipped it over.....bet you didn't notice!!!
The Petaloo Mixed Blossoms and Forget Me Nots in Robin's Egg Blue really pop with the addition of the brown mist.
The alphas are a mix of printed chippies from K&Company. The "D's" were originally green, which gave them a different shade of blue as well. To finish off the card, I added some metal gears.
With great sadness, this is my last post for Petaloo. It was such a great opportunity, honor and dream come true, to be on this awesome Design Team. Thank you so much Cheryl and Jeff!!!!
