My Dad visited my blog yesterday (he’s actually the person responsible for naming it) and he gave me his thoughts about what he liked and what he thought I could improve. Thanks Dad! The card I have made today is actually inspired by a challenge he unwittingly gave me, and funnily enough, I think this card would be super cute as a Father’s Day card, but that was not my intention at all when I chose the image.
As I was putting the finishing touches to the centre panel, I nearly wrecked it. I was using the Distress Ink (Antique Linen) to shade around the outside of the centre panel but the sponge was a little bit juicy and I ended up with a big smudge. I decided to go for it and bring the colour right up to the image. I LOVED the look. Talk about a happy accident. It really went well with the Basic Grey papers I had chosen to use before I had started to colour the image (another cutie from Penny Black but I don’t think it is available any more).
So, here’s my card for today:
Thanks for the inspiration, Dad!
