Happy Father's Day! (a little early...heehee)

PaperPlay Challenges!!!

Hi Everyone!  Well, I'm a day late with my PaperPlay Challenges card...I'm sooooo sorry!  Wednesday was my son's last day of school and now my whole schedule is flip flopped!  Anyway, DT "A" was challenged this week to a 'Father's Day' theme.  How fitting since the big day is right around the corner!  Funny how that works out, huh?  My store, Love To Stamp, just happens to be the sponsor too!!!  Feel free to head on over there and take a peek at what's in stock.  I've added all kinds of goodies recently!  Back to the challenge, all you need to do is make a project with a Father's Day theme!  It's that simple!  I can't wait to see what you come up with :-)  Be sure to stop by the other DT gals blogs to see what they have to show.  All the girls have really outdone themselves with this challenge!

Here's my project...

Happy Father's Day
This little cutie pie is my Little Darlings 'Soooo Big' image.  He's available exclusively at Love To Stamp.  I paired him with this wonderful #570 Windmill by Magnolia.  They're in stock right now at Magnolia-licious.  The sentiment is by A Muse ArtStamps.  The gorgeous dp's are from the My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist "Fly a Kite" collection and are also available right now at Love To Stamp.  To embellish, I very simply wrapped some string around the card and added a couple of brads...all from my stash.  I like to keep masculine cards a little more plain.  It just doesn't seem proper to add the flowers and frills to them.

I colored the entire scene with Copic markers.  I had a huge pile of markers and completely forgot to write them down before I started putting them away.  I was half way through cleaning up when I realized it, but it was too late :-(  I used dots for the background.  I saw the technique in the Summertime issue of Magnolia Ink.  Chris Dark did a much better job with it though!  This was my first attempt and I have a loooooong way to go before I'm really happy with it.  I really need to work on the dimension of the landscape.  I like the dotted clouds though.  I think they turned out pretty good for a first try!

Well, that's it for me today!  Thank you so much for stopping by :-)  I hope you'll leave me a little note to let me know that you were here!

This is just adorable. Love the pointillism you used! Your windmill looks great. I've yet to use my windmill stamp. It intimidated me! LOL I really love the reds with the brown. Sweet card, Angie!
