Have a de-light-ful Father’s Day!


Sharing yet another Guest Designer project for Imagine That!Digis by Kris! at their Creative Playground Challenge.The theme this month is Tic-Tac-Toe and it runs from  June 4th – July 1st.Stop on by the blog to check out all the wonderful inspiration there!


I’ve followed the middle vertical line Sentiment,Patterned Paper and Twine to create my card.Lighthouse by Imagine That!Digis by Kris  is not only fantastic for Father’s Day but any occasion that calls for a male themed card.After printing out the black and white outline version of the image I coloured it using Koh-I-Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils for a soft ,hazy Summer day feel.Sprayed with fixative afterwards,of course!I chose Sweet Pastels digi papers to go with it as I thought the clouds and striped paper would continue the appearance of a warm,sunny day on the British coast…Yes,we do have them sometimes 😉 Scraps of the stripy paper were adhered to the epoxy button stickers to make good use of them.The sentiment is one of several included in the set.All finished with jute twine to tie in (unintentional pun!) with the kraft card base.
