TMR - Father's Day ...

.... Hi!   It's time for our new challenge at The Male Room.  I wasn't able to play along with our May challenges as my Mum was here on holiday.  However, I'm pleased to be back with this challenge - one to celebrate our Dad!  He's a special guy and worth a special card - our theme is Father's Day.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Impression Obsession - Have a Seat; Stampin' Up! - Delightful Dozen; Papermania - Couch Potato
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; SU - Wild Wasabi
Dies: Spellbinders - Gold Squares One (S4-410) #1
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi; SU Card - Daffodil Delight; Copics


I've used the bold, bright colours from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#77.  I stamped the cozy armchair onto some green design paper and added some subtle shading making it a well loved chair.  I made the cushion from a small piece of yellow card that I embossed with a pattern and then rubbed turquoise ink over to bring out the design.  I stamped a very simple sentiment, adding a touch of colour with my Copic marker.  I finished off the front by adding a cup of tea and TV controller - both on the floor waiting for the chair's owner to settle down.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of the turquoise paper and stamped a fun sentiment.
