I want to show you the card I made this week for the challenge. Since Father's day is just around the corner, I thought I would also use this challenge to try give you all a little inspiration. Sadly, my dad passed away almost 12 years ago. I miss him every day. He was a wonderful person and his gentleness and generosity is something that I looked up to.
This challenge was really a challenge for me. Blue is my favourite colour, but I have a hard time working with what I call masculine colours. I left the card a little more plain, but I still had to put some bling in it with the glittered stars. You may notice the two tone "twine" on there. I used some #10 crochet cotton and coloured it with a blue & beige copic to match the colour scheme of the card. That technique is a great way to get custom colours and custom matching to your projects. I just happened to grab a couple copics, but you could use any type of marker you have handy. I have done it with Marvy markers and Crayola as well and both worked great too. So without much further a do, here's the card:
See you next week...
