Dad n me

Apart from MAN stuff for Father's Day (like cars and beer) I sometimes get asked for sweet stuff.  What better than this beautiful image from Make It Crafty - Daddy and Lucy.

The image is so beautiful I wanted to do a CAS card - someone take my temperature I must be feeling ill again ;)

The sentiment was produced on my lap top before printing the whole thing.
I've coloured the image with ProMarkers in pastel shades.  The grass believe it or not was also done with a ProMarker (I have a secret to share - don't ever through away your pens that have nearly run out. You can create beautiful effects like this with them :) - this was a Moss Green nearly dead one!)

All I've done with this is use some blue design paper from Lili of the Valley to frame it.  The stitching effect was hand drawn in pencil.  I've also used some blue self adhesive gems.

Ta Da
Right back to complicated stuff like layering and flowers ;)
