World’s Greatest Daddy

With Father’s Day coming up in a few days time(2nd September in Australia), I thought to make and share a card for the occasion…I chose the cute dragons from Mama Elephant stamps for my card and the background was pretty quick to create too…before I begin to tell you more about my card, here’s wishing a very Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome dads out there…!!

I started by stamping and colouring in the dragons using my Zig clean colour markers and once dry, I die cut them using the coordinating dies…I then die cut two pieces for the background and coloured them in using the following shades of  Distress Inks – antique linen,rusty hinge, peeled paint and mowed lawn…

I used salty ocean Distress Ink and MFT cloud stencil on a plain white background panel and adhered this panel to the card base…I added the two  die cut backgrounds on the card front and then using some adhesive foam, I adhered the two dragons on my card..
I stamped the sentiment using black ink and added a small red die cut heart next to the ‘baby’ dragon and my card was ready…

All Of Me And My Dragons

I have absolutely enjoyed making this card…these dragons from Mama Elephant are so adorable and I love all the tiny images in this set which can be used to create so many different scenes for cards…I also had a lot of fun making the night background which I have made following Jennifer McGuire’s Glazed Distress Oxide technique

I applied some Distress Oxide inks on my craft mat and sprayed some water….I then used a glossy cardstock and smooshed that ink onto the paper,drying it with a heat gun and repeating the process…I have used black soot,wilted violet,squeezed lemonade and lucky clover shades of oxide inks…once there was enough colour and layers on this panel and it was completely dry, I applied some Distress glaze and buffed it with a soft cloth before adhering it to a plain white card base…

I die cut two city backgrounds…one using black cardstock and another from grey cardstock….I adhered the black one to the card front and reversed the grey one, lightly inked the edges and adhered it on front of the black one using some adhesive foam…
Next, I stamped and coloured in all the images and die cut them and adhered them to the card…I stamped the sentiment on a white label and added some tiny rhinestones to embellish my card..
