Happy Father’s Day! Hope all of you lovely people are spending this time with your superdads, your first love and anyone who has been a father figure in your life! I haven’t seen my parents in a really long time due to the pandemic and do miss these little moments with them. Hoping for things to get better soon and so that I can be near them soon. Till then, enjoy this little treat ❣
First, a shout out to the fabulous company Craft Consortium, whom I accidently discovered on Simon Says Stamp. I was looking for some scenery stamps/stencils to use for backgrounds and they popped up in my search. Their designs is what blew me away. They have more products like stickers and paper which all have a similar theme, giving you more choice to choose based on the kind of crafting you do. So do head over to Simon Says Stamp (in the US) or to their website (for UK).
For this card, I used the stamp set Bluebells and Buttercups. This stamp set gave me such a family vibe that I decided to use this as the main theme of this Father’s Day card.
The tree and birds background uses Hero Arts stencils Woodland Forest and Clouds and Grass Scene. I used Gathered Twigs distress ink for the tree trunk and Chipped Sapphire for the birds.
The entire background is made using watercolors. I, by no means, am an expert in watercoloring. But, I can definitely say that it’s the least intimidating coloring process as it is so forgiving. I can play around with the colors and mostly end up with a lovely outcome. Do you guys also think it turned out well? Do let me know in the comments section!
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and again, spent some time watercoloring the image. After drying, I just fuzzy cut around the image, glued it on foam to give it a little bit of dimension.
I stamped the sentiment using Docrafts Alpha letters individually using my Misti stamping tool. I cut the edges in the shape of a banner and glued it to the background.
I’d like to enter this to the following challenges:
Enjoy the rest of the day and I’ll see you soon!
