Papertake Weekly ,,,,, Dads & Lads

Hi all :-) I am in London at the moment so I hope Mr Blogger publishes this for me !

This week on the Papertake Weekly we are thinking of the men in our lives, ,,


we are sponsored by Whiff Of Joy so a fab prize on offer this week :-)

For my card I used this cute LOTV image, this one is called Deckchair Dreaming, I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges slightly with stormy sky distress ink . I did add picket fence crackle paint to the wood on the deck chair but it doesn’t show very much.

I placed the coloured image behind a stamped Lawn Fawn frame from the ‘Say Cheese’ set to make it look like a photo. The postcard is a Unity stamp, inked with brown memento and inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and the papers are from Basic Grey Max and Whiskers paper pad. The sun, sea, sand stamps are from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set and I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops, buttons from my drawer and the bias tape was from The Ribbon Girl.

Thanks for looking :-) our GD's and the DT have made some fab cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them but before you leave please leave me a comment so I know you popped by and I will come and see you when I get back :-)
