A Colourful Catch

Hello Everyone!!!  Yes, it's the dreaded MAN CARD!!!  I know many of you will be preparing for Father's Day (here in Australia, that event doesn't occur until September), so today's tutorial on the Flourishes Blog shows how I coloured this hat and reel image from the What a Catch stamp set.

There has been some shuffling, but you can now find my Copic tutorials on the Flourishes Blog every Second Monday as part of their Create with Me Monday posts, I'd love it if you stopped by!!  :)

The card itself is made of a base of Pear Bazzill, layered with Kraft, Chocolate Chip and some Kaisercraft Up, Up and Away DP.  Over this is a piece of striped grosgrain ribbon.  The image has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics.  This has been cut out with Small Oval Nestabilities and matted with Chocolate cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and then matted again with more Up, Up and Away DP cut with Labels 17 Nestabilities.  The sentiment, also from What a Catch has been stamped in black in each corner of the Label.  To finish I've added a few Kasiercraft Pewter Pearls to the top corner.

In case you missed it - my Crafty Aussie friends, you can now buy or order your Flourishes stamps through any store that stocks Copic in your local area!!  YAY!!!  EVEN better - if you are coming to the Papercraft Expo in Brisbane over the Queens Birthday long week-end in June, you can MEET the Number 1 Flourish herself, the divine Jan Marie Caruso who will be doing Make and Takes on the Copic/X-press It Booth (Stand 31)!!!!  Make sure you stop by and say Hello, she's looking forward to meeting you all!!!

What a great card! And I thought I was the only one who dreads making man cards. They really are tricky, but I think you aced this one.

Funny, the dreaded man card. That has given me a good laugh. Anyhoo, I love the card, a bit partial to green. Thanks for sharing.

I love your work. As a watercolor artist I love it when we let ourselves get a little beyond just stamping and let our creative juices flow. I love the your fathers day card.
