Fab'n'Funky Challenges #125 - Happy Father's Day

Well, you've all gone green!  Great entries for our last challenge and if you made one of the many wonderful creations, check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to view our winners.  Don't forget your winner's badge too.

Now we move onto another great challenge and this week we are celebrating...

Father's Day

We would love to see your cards for your darling Dad's!  We are sponsored by the wonderful Lili of the Valley (LOTV) this week and the lucky random winner of the challenge will receive a £10 voucher to spend online.

Now, onto my card for this challenge.  I used LOTV stamp called "Lazy Afternoon".  He does look very relaxed!

Before I started making this card I asked which were my Dad's least favourite colours.  Turns out, he really doesn't like pink and green.  Well, I'm afraid grass only comes in green, as far as I know!

I coloured my image with Promarkers in the following colours:-

Forest Green
Indigo Blue
True Blue
Arctic Blue

I inked the edge of the topper with Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  The wood effect base cardstock is from Hunkydory and I simply cut this with my craft knife and metal ruler.  I used the size of the toppper to judge the size of my frame and used a square metal die to produce it.  The wooden leaves were from and the letters were from Spellbinders Donna's Alphas, cut in yellow pearlescent cardstock.

I hope Dad likes his card.  Hope you all have a fab crafty week.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
