.... not only is today Father's Day, it's also time for the June Waltzingmouse Blog Party - details can be found here. This month we have been given a photo for inspiration - we can use anything from the photo - the colours, the shapes, the blossoms, the chairs - whatever takes your fancy! We can use the picture to inspire us!
I added some shading to the dark grey/blue background to create a night sky. I found the moon image on the Internet and cut it out with a circular Spellbinder die. I stamped the rocket on white card and coloured it with Promarkers. The sentiment is a perfect fit with the moon/space theme - don't you love the font? I finished off by making a large star. Kathryn was really pleased with the card.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Half Pint Heroes, Compact Family, Christmas Cottage
Inks: Memento - Tangelo, Teal Zeal, Tuxedo Black; Distress - Black Soot
Spellbinders: Stars (S4-335) # 1, 2 & 3
Accessories: Stampin' Up! Designer Paper (stars), Moon Image - Internet, Card from stash
As a special Father's Day treat, Kathryn and I decided to make Jonathan a fruit cake. Only it turned out to be more of a fruit bread than cake! Still, it tasted good. Next time I'll have a go at a proper cake! And Jonathan has decided how to spend Father's day. It's been relatively lazy - we collected my car, Jonathan did some photography stuff and this afternoon he's watching the European Football Championship.
That's all for now - I'm off to join in with the Blog Party.
