Well today is not only Fathers Day here in the UK, but also the Waltzingmouse Blog Party. For the first time that I'm aware of we haven't had a theme as such, but an inspirational photo to use.
As soon as I saw this I knew I would use it for my Fathers day card, as the colours really work for a masculine card.
Following last months challenge to use felt I've had my bag of felt out and around, so I went straight to it and decided to do something a little different, a felt background. I used my cuttlebug and my Spellbinders scalloped edge dies to cut out a number of felt strips which would sit together in this lovely wave pattern. I decided that to echo the scalloped edges I would use my Waltzingmouse Teeny trees concentric circle stamps for the main image. I stamped in a variety of sizes and colours, and finished with stamping the word Dad, which are individual alphabet stamps from my Anna Griffin Monogram set and sponged the edges before layering onto a final piece of felt.
If you want to see what other people were inspired to create from the image above then head over to the Waltzingmouse blog at 6.30pm.
