Today is the start of a new challenge over at Pattie's Creations. Create either a Father's Day themed project or a Wedding theme - your choice. You can find images at Pattie's ETSY store for either choice.
As you can tell, I decided to make an easel card for Father's Day using Pattie's Cowboy Dreams image, which is colored with Copic markers. The background started out as white cardstock that I added embossing paste to using the Crafters Workshop mini chicken wire stencil. Once the paste was dry, I began adding (lots) of Distress Stains until I was happy with the color. (It took a while.)
I also tried a very popular technique of sprinkling embossing powder onto cardstock and heat setting it (most people use Frantage powders.) I didn't have any of those, but have lots of Sparkle N Sprinkle embossing powders, so that's what I used. I sprinkled both their new (coming soon) Copper Flame mixed media embossing powder and Magic Speckle embossing powder onto the side of the cardstock and heat set it from underneath.
Both sentiments were die cut from Die-Versions fonts - the larger one on the front of the easel card is Saloon Door and the message revealed when the card is open is the Little Lizzie font. The music notes are also from Die-Versions (Harmony Wee Petites). The bow tie is a Memory Box die (Family Ties).
You have two weeks to upload your Fathers'Day or Wedding project to Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. We look forward to seeing what you come up with. Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created as well.
