Father's Day Card 2012

So here's a quick Father's Day card I made last night. I've been playing around with a few "new to me" techniques. Some I'm loving and some...not so much. And some, like the one here, I'm loving but needing some more practice on! I used my Perfect Pearls Mists for the first time on this card. This card started out as a bright white piece of cardstock; I sprayed perfect pearl on it just to tone it down some and give some shimmer. That part worked fine. But then I decided to add the sentiment flag at the bottom and wrote the sentiment BEFORE spraying the Perfect Pearls. DON'T DO THIS! See how my ink ran? Since I had already completed the WHOLE rest of the card I decided to go with it and just call it a "distressed technique". And, since my Dad loves me a WHOLE bunch, I bet he won't mind! 



Supplies used:
  • pre-cut white card base
  • craft cardstock
  • tree image from Basic Grey stamps "critters 'n treats"
  • red buttons from my stash
  • brown ink from Studio G
  • Perfect Pearls Mists "perfect pearl"
  • pop dots
I'm going to do something with this card I've never done before. I'm LINKING UP to a challenge! I'm linking up to the Father's Day Challenge over at More Than Favors: Wacky WednesdayYou should, too!

  3. Of course he won't mind, what Dad would? Keep playing with those mists, I promise they're so fun. (I really didn't like them the first 20 times!)
