Over the Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway: Father's Day

Hi All,

Welcome to another Hump Day Blog Candy Giveaway by InStyle Stamps!  Our theme for this month is Father's Day, and everyone is making a card or project for a father or father-figure.  I find that most people have trouble making cards for the man or boy in their life, so this is everyone's chance to crank out those male cards!  This month's prize: any 4 digital images from April's or May's releases!!! That is an awesome prize.

I decided to use "Richard" who is going to make an appearance at an upcoming release by ISS.

My card base is Ballet Blue.  That was followed by Basic Black, and Basic Gray, topped off with Brilliant Blue, which was embossed with my Argyle Cuttlebug folder.  I wrapped a piece of Soft Suede polka dot ribbon around that base layer.
Then, I chopped a rectangle of Whisper White, and Basic Black.  On the white piece, I sponged some Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, and Brilliant Blue inks to make a gradiated colour.  Then, I embossed the white piece with the Argyle embossing folder. 
I cut a faux prize ribbon out of Marigold Morning CS, using a couple of strips and my 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  I stamped the father sentiment in Versamark on that, and embossed with black EP.  I added some self-adhesive nail heads along the tails of the ribbon too.

I printed Richard onto PTI White CS, coloured him with Copics, cut him out, and mounted him on the rectangle panel with Dimensionals.

Hop over to the ISS blog to see what the whole DT have done and to submit YOUR Father's Day creation to win 4 digis. 
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
