Dads Decorators Ltd.

Morning -
I'm posting another card today that I've made for the other man in my life... My Dad. Its his birthday at the beginning of March so obviously I had to use a Dr Digi image and I've gone for Dunderton Decorators Ltd. Since he retired both my Sister and I have kept him busy with lots of jobs and decorating. He is our Odd job man, maintenance man , dog walker, even the 5th emergency service when I had a tyre blow out recently on the motorway - After all ... what else does he have to do to occupy him??! Luckily for Dad - he and Mum go away on his Birthday to tropical climates so at least he will get some rest.

I used my new stamps from My Favourite things - distressed patterns to create a paint effect stripes on the background and also to do the paint splatters on his clothes. I die cut the 3 tools from silver mirri card and matched these with the letters to spell out "Dad" using American crafts Thickers. I used some glaze on the paint and glasses to make them look wet and finally some Silver pen to the metallic areas.

I used these promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Shirt - Red, Poppy & Burgandy
Boots - Ice greys
Dungarees - Powder blue
Roller - March hare & Grey squirrel. Sky blue & Egyptian blue.
Paint - Pastel green, Oasis & Ocean teal.
