Dad's Shed

Hi lovely crafters,
This is my Father's Day card for this year! My Dad spends hours in his shed and so this digi image from Digistamp Boutique was perfect for him.  It took me ages to colour in all that wood with my promarkers but I really enjoyed it!
I had to add the bees because he's just discovered a nest in his beloved shed lol! So hopefully he'll have a little chuckle at them!
It's an easel style card and I've inked the layers with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and added some die cut grass and greenery along the top.
I'd like to enter my card in the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ' Masculine'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Hi crafters,
I saw a lot of stencilled cards at a recent craft show and thought I'd have a go after treating myself to a new palette knife!
I embossed the background and even attempted a pierced layer. I found matching the corners a bit tricky so I hid them with the black pearls lol!
I added some glitter on the letters and a tassel finished off the card.
I was quite pleased with it really - nice to try a different technique every now and then.
I'd like to enter my card in the Crafting from the heart challenge which is ' Anything Goes '.
Thanks for looking,
hugs, Karen xx
