Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #93 - Fathers Day

This Fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Feebs, who has chosen the theme of   'Father's Day'.

Fathers Day is a busy time for me as I have four cards to make, my Dad, my Step-Dad, my Father-in-Law and one for my hubby from our boy Dexter.

On writing this I have just realised that I have only done one so far and I only have 2 weeks to go, I feel some late nights coming up this week, oops!

Anyway I started with a card for Hubby from our son, as I knew which image I wanted to use.

It is by one of our lovely sponsors The Paper Shelter and is called 'Happy Times', this image reminds me of Hubby lazing in the Hammock at my Mums house in France and Dexter loves to join him in there too.

I coloured mainly with Promarkers but used Copics for the hair.
The sky and grass were brushed on with my new Inkylicious Ink Dusters and Adirondack ink pads, the Dusters are great to work with and I found it so easy to get the ink on smoothly.
You can find them here.

The bunting is 'Tea Party' by Dovecraft and the letters were cut with my Cricut and 'Mickey Fonts' cartridge.

The Backing papers are by First Edition - Up Up & Away.
