FTTC121 My turn...

Happy Tuesday again!

I'm excited to tell you, that it is my turn to host this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC121!!!
Father's Day is celebrated here in the US on June19th and since that special day is right around the corner I thought it would be wise to plan ahead! So, my challenge to you this week is to create a *FATHER'S DAY* card!!!  We would love it if you would play along!

Here is my idea....



I used the newly released May Set called What a Catch. I inked the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ C0, C1, C2, C3, B0000, B91, B93, B95, E25, E29, E51,  E53, YG95 and Colorless Blender. In the background I used a corrugated cardboard piece and ink distressed it with some Craft White Ink. At last I added the Ribbon, the Star Brad and the three Silver Brads below the sentiment.

Please make sure to check out the rest of the manly cards the team has created ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty. Please  check out our newest team member Heather and our new Guest Designer for the month of June Pat Adams!!! We also have another friend, Iwona helping us out today!

*******************************************************************************

Of course I couldn't  pass up the opportunity to create another fun Flourishes card!!!



This time I'm using the beautiful color palette from the  CR84FN31 colors!


I finally cleaned up my super duper messy stamp room this past weekend and I came across some Vellum Paper and I thought it would be fun to use something different for a change :) !!! I stamped the main image from the gorgeous Orchids Set using Memento Black. The DP in the background is from the SU Blushing Bride Collection and I also used a piece from the SU Pear Pizzazz DP. I distressed the edges and added some *faux stitching* connecting the dots with some White Gel Pen. The rest of my card was
embellished with a doily, White Satin Ribbon, a SU Antique Brad, a punched out MS Butterfly and some Snow White Kaiser Pearls.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you come out and play along with us...hugs ~S~

Hi Silke,
oh what great cards. My favourite is the "Father´s Day Card". If I could get a stamp like this, it would be the right one for my father: he loves to go fishing.

Greetings from Germany
