I'ts been a hugely busy two weeks with some extra church services,work, family activities and summer fun, too! Including two new babies born to my nieces (congrats Shae & Bobbi!!!!), my son-in-laws birthday, hiking and a bonfire with s'mores on the beach I cannot believe I had time to squeeze in a card or two but I did!
Here is a card I made for my son-in-law Ray who loves to barbecue (and very good at it I must say!) and so this was absolutely the perfect image to color for his card. I've used three different stamp sets but the main focal point is from Art Impressions, the sentiment is Boys Will be Boys (Taylored Expressions)
I've colored the Grill Father with Copics and paper pieced the cooking mitt. I watched a Sandy Allnock YouTube to learn how to make the illusions of the BBQ smoke and fire. I went with the simple version but be sure and check out Sandy's videos they are incredible! Maybe next time I'll get brave and try the more advanced background.
The stamps inside the card: Avery Elle (sentiment from Surf's Up) and the grill is from the Taylored Expressions (Boys will be Boys); I've used Archival Jet Black ink and Hero Arts Shadow Ink Mid Tone Red Royal.
The designer paper is from the 6x6 pad from Simple Stories Summer Fresh. The base is Neenah Desert Storm card stock and I've used red Bazzill c/s to mat the focal image, Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday
Word Art Wednesday #144
Sister Act Card #69
Great Impressions (August Birthday Bash)
Thanks so much for visiting!!
