Fine Feathers For Father's Day CTD291

Wow! There are some super colour challenges this week! Usually, it is a sketch that sparks my enthusiasm, but this time its the terrific colours. These are courtesy of The Color Throwdown, why don't you click on the link and take a look.

It's Mothers Day in Australia this Sunday, so I made a Fathers Day card! Not really as silly as it sounds, both my parents have passed on, so there isn't a need for me to make either card actually. These colours and the inspiration picture seemed more masculine to me, so that's the direction I went.

Fine Feathers was a recent acquisition to my collection, so I'm using it a lot, especially as it now seems that it might be retiring. The thought process went like this: - feathers - writing quills- ink - slatters.  Gorgeous Grunge was a perfect partner, after all that thinking!

Delightful Dozen is the stamp set with 12 varied greetings, including Happy Fathers Day , Mothers Day, Easter and so on. Look for it on the retirement list shortly too. I've used the Banners Framelits to cut a couple of coloured banners to introduce a little more of the colour.


If you do happen to be celebrating Mother's Day, I do hope it is a perfect day for you, 
I'm pretty happy getting inky!!!
