[DYSU] Challenge #76 - For a Man or Boy

Good morning, everyone! This an exciting day at DYSU for us, because our new girls are debuting their projects. Make sure to say hi to Archana, Barb, Meredith and Rebecca...

We are challenging all of you to make something crafty for a man or boy in your life. After all, Father's Day is just around the corner. Does any one know what they are getting their dad's yet? I'm stumped... 



This week I'm working with a sponsor image by Bugaboo Digi Stamps. My dad's always busy working and jet-setting across the globe, and sometimes I think he needs to relax a little. Take time out for himself to take care of himself. But he always puts family first. So this card is for him...

Relax
Stamps: (Side Chair) Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - White, Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Vintage Photo) Ranger
Embellishments: (Amy Tangerine Thickers - Muse) American Crafts; (Impression Plate - Woodgrain; Jute Twine) Papertrey Ink; (Stickles - X'mas Red) Ranger; (Border Punch - Postage) Fiskars; (Gelly Roll - White) Sakura


Here an upclose look at the fun side chair. I gave it a textured look by running the Woodgrain impression plate over it (as well as on the white card stock). The heart really stuck out to me, so I wanted to give it some glitter. The doodled, white heart on the top right is just to bring the whole postage stamp concept back...

Relax

These wood grain Thickers were actually my first inspiration point and decided to make this the theme of the card. Aren't these Thickers greats?

Relax

Thanks for peeking. I'm going to send you off to look at our new (as well as us old) girls's creations...I look forward to seeing your masculine creations this week!
