Au meilleur des Papas

“Au meilleur des Papas” …to the best of Dads 😀  Capture d_écran 2018-06-13 à 14.22.32I know, Father’s Day is this Sunday, and this is the last minute.  I must say the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #276 definitely inspired this card.   I made a stencil out of the Sizzix Mixed Media #4 brick thinlit.  I then applied a thick layer of modelling paste, removed the stencil and add a little bit of black, copper, silver, gold and yellow embossing powders.  While still not dry, I heat embossed and got this rocky texture.  I nearly stamped “Daddy Rocks” on the black card stock, but my daughter preferred, to the best of Dads, after all, it is her dad 😉  So silver thread and a shiny red heat embossed heart were pasted on top and the card was done.  HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all you great DADs out there!

  1. The faux rock wall is genius! I love it, and I agree that “Daddy rocks” would have been a perfect sentiment for it! Thanks for sharing your awesome and unique interpretation of our sketch with us at CC&S! 🙂

  3. LOL, Daddy Rocks would be a perfect sentiment for this card, Joanna! But the sentiment you used is just as perfect. Maybe you could put “Daddy Rocks” on the inside of the card! Either way, the texture is wonderful!

  5. Such a fabulous effect with the brick stencil that you made and the layering of the embossing powders. Love the finishes of the thread and the tiny red heart. Wonderful masculine card with great texture x

  6. Love the rocky texture you created! “Daddy Rocks” would have been a very appropriate sentiment, but I think the one you used is a really nice sentiment.
