Before beginning our regularly scheduled post, I'm happy to announce the winner of this last weekend's hop with our friends from My Sweet Petunia.
CONGRATULATIONS DENISE BRYANT!
I began the card by stamping the image onto my favorite coloring paper, with a light ink for no-line coloring. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the image, adding in a white gel pen for the sesame seeds on top of the bun. I will admit, this took some time to color the way I like. But, if it was stamped in a darker toned ink, you can color the image in much more quickly, because the stamp actually helps you with the shading.
Once the image was colored to my satisfaction, I trimmed the panel down slightly. I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Dad's Day Stamp Set, onto a strip of black card stock. Then I stamped the Gingham Background Stamp onto a piece of white card stock, using a coral ink, and trimmed a strip off for my card.
I adhered all of the pieces together and wrapped a bit of red twine around the Gingham portion of the card. The card front was adhered to a white top-folding card base, using foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed this card, and can see that the Dad's Day Stamp Set isn't just for Father's Day - you can use it for lots of other occasions too!
