Barbecued Dad

Oh My! Has it really been nearly a week since I posted to this blog? I'm shocked to see that. I really must get some more projects finished so that I can post a few more items.

Anyway, it's time for the Pixie Cottage challenge and this week we have the wonderful Donalda joining us as guest designer. She's created a fab sketch for the challenge and the theme this week is 'Father's Day'.

I've used a new Pixie Cottage digital image to make this father's day card. Isn't it a fab image? I think he's called 'Grillman' but that may change when the image appears in the shop. I thought the fire in the barbecue was crying out to be glittered up. I've used promarkers to colour this image in.

The background is brayered using a Big and Juicy inkpad - soothing sunset.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - Just For Dad

Cards For Men - Father's Day

Double Dutch - Dad's Treat

Simple Doodles - Just 4 You Dad

One Stitch At A Time - Boys To Men

Creative Craft Challenge - For The Man In Your Life

Pile It On - Quirky (I think he's quirky)

Please have a look at the wonderful cards that the talented DT have made this week.

Thanks for looking.
