Happy Fathers Day Card

I enjoyed making this Tiger Card as it oozes masculinity, which really suits my hubby and will be the perfect Fathers Day Card for him.

Happy Fathers Day

I added the textured card at the bottom to accentuate the mirrored effect of the water in my stamped image, and it was nice to add some natural coloured texture to try to man this card up a bit! I added a purple highlight to offset the grey colouring, for the cool colours that are under the Tiger’s neck . I started colouring this last year at my daughter’s  play rehearsal for the same theatre company as this year and finished it finally the other night, only one year later and another play later. It was a marathon to colour and took a lot longer than I thought. I don’t mind waiting for her at all and it gives me a bit more time to do my crafting, unfortunately there is only 2 more weeks of rehearsals for Jack & the Beanstalk a Pantomime ( she’s the back half of a cow, a villager, the hen that lays the golden egg, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz(singing Were off to see the the Wizard solo) & a scary monster monster. That’s a lot of costume changes for one play.This is her 4th play for the year. Her 3rd Play this year has performances next week. She is small Alice in Alice in Wonderland a Disney play,so it’s go go go around here. Hair,Make up, Action!June 2011 Vicki & I 006

Wow, what a majestical image! I love how the sentiment is just big enough to convey the occasion but not so big that is takes focus away from the Tiger!! Awesome card.

Thanks for joining us over at PaperPlay Challenges for our 'Father's Day/ Man's Card' Challenge this week. Good luck!
