A Father's Day Card for ColourQ

This week over at the ColourQ blog they have chosen masculine colors in celebration of the upcoming Father's Day.   I needed to make a Father's Day card so this helped jump start my creativity.   I went to my stamp drawer and pulled out a stamp from a year or so ago.  It is called Wonderful Friend.  It's a great stamp to use for masculine cards.   Since this was featured as a Stamp of the Month it is no longer available.    If you really like this stamp and would like to have one, contact me and I'll see if I can find one for you!

Here is ColourQ's inspiration for colors:
                                    

I used Close To My Heart's colors of Barn Red, Autumn Terracotta, Indian Corn Blue and Grey Wool. I used the little Argyle stamp and Barn Red ink for a tone on tone background.  My stamped pocket watch adds an accent color of Autumn Terracotta.  Since the card features a tie, I thought it was appropriate to add the tiny white buttons which make me think of a crisp white dress shirt.


I hope you enjoyed my card.   Be sure to check out the other inspirations on the ColourQ blog.  You still have time to make your card before Father's Day!
