Hi there, our challenge this week at PanPastel UK is 'Fathers Day' or boys. I don't make many mens' cards so it was a great opportunity to get ahead with a card for my lovely father- in-law. You don't have to use PanPastels to enter our challenge but of course we love it when you do and if you don't have any yet don't forget our lucky winner receives a fabby PanPastel trial set from Your Creativity Store!
I've used some recycled kraft paper for the base layer of my card and then added some backing paper from Tims vintage paper stack, it was a grey tone so I've used shades of brown panpastel to give it a warmer tone and then splashed on a little brown paint and distressed it with my craft knife. I've also added some recycled corrugated card and some kraft glassine that I crumpled and sploshed with more brown paint. Next I added some burlap, twine, a filigree corner and rusty metal mesh (all from the lovely Linda at the Funkie Junkie)
The focal image is a LaBlanche stamp stamped with versamark, I then added some brown and black PanPastel that was left over on my sponge, its a really detailed stamp but the Pans pick up the detail beautifully.
To finish off I've added a concertina rosette made with more glassine, lock and key brads and a couple of recycled buttons
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles: for the fellas
Frilly and Funkie: Kraft and twine
One Stop Crafts: Fathers Day
The Stamp Man: For a man
Through the Craftroom door: Distressing
I hope you're having a good weekend, I've had another manic week at work and our poor fur baby Mia is still poorly so I haven't had a lot of time for crafting but hopefully today i'll manage to get a couple of hours in my craft room today.
Thanks for popping by today
