This is a one-layer card using my favourite Confetti card stock as a base. It's a design that would be great for a outdoors, country-living kind of a guy!
Don't you just love this pheasant from the Autumn Days stamp set?! He looks exactly as dippy as pheasants always do!
And here's my favourite fathers' day sentiment from Plane and Simple - simple but effective.
Here's how to make this card:
- Take an A5 piece of Confetti White card stock. Score and fold in half to make a card base.
- Roughly sponge the right-hand side of the card with Bashful Blue ink to make a sky. Tear a piece of scrap paper and use it as a mask over the sky. Sponge a little Old Olive ink over the bottom of the card to create a ground. Add a little Soft Suede at the edges.
- Colour the pheasant stamp with More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Garden Green markers. Stamp over the 'ground'. Now build up the foreground with grass stamps - I used one from Pocket Silhouettes as well as the gorgeous grass stalk from Autumn Days - using the Old Olive and Soft Suede inks.
- Use a stamp-a-majig to add a sentiment in Basic Black ink.

Here's the good news: my camera has risen from its sick bed and is skipping about taking photos again! Yay!! Thank you for all your messages of support - I really appreciated them. It's wonderful to hear from people who understand that losing your camera is a major disaster! The bad news of course is that it cost an arm and a leg to sort out... Between my dentist and the camera shop I have no doubt that I shall soon be destitute!
Thank you for popping in today. Tomorrow I shall be back with a dotty project!
Hope to see you then,
