Father's Day Collage
The new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is a timely one - FATHER'S DAY. Don't forget, we are a vintage and shabby chic challenge blog so we want to see a card or other paper-crafted project in one of those styles.
Ragnhild is joining us this week as Guest Designer, so please check out her card and the inspiration she provides along with the wonderful inspiration from our Design Team.
I decided to make a collage style card for my husband since my Father passed away 30 years ago. The background paper is from My Mind's Eye and I stamped the keys from a set by TPC Studio. The horse is from The Graphic's Fairy and the clock is a digital element from Cuddlebeez (no longer online). The car is a stamp from Indigo Blu and the sentiment was computer generated.
I cut the gate hinge with my Cameo using Tim Holtz Grunge Paper and then inked it with some Terra Cotta and Rust Adirondack Alcohol Ink (Ranger). The butterfly was a gift from a friend and the metal washer is from my husband's tool box. The lock, paper clip and the pin are from Tim Holtz. The gear is from Bead Landings and the button was in my stash. The bottle cap came from Labatt's after my husband drank the beer for me (I am a red wine or scotch gal) - LOL. I made the insert using the same font as I did for the word Father and then added an open frame digital element from C. Renee. All the distressing has been done with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
