This is my entry for Katrina's Color Inspiration #7 challenge.
We had to use the following colors:
Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky, and Very Vanilla
I designed this card for my dad, Pedro. I only see my parents about twice a year (they live in Taos, New Mexico and I live in California). I know my Dad with like this Father's Day card.
This is my first time using chipboard letters...I only have pre-colored ones. I love them! These letters are from a Making Memories scrapbooking kit. They were originally blue, and not a Soft Sky blue. I rubbed them with Close to Cocoa and the Chocolate Chip ink. I scuffed them up a bit to reveal the Close to Cocoa layer of ink. I took a plain white flower and rubbed it with Soft Sky ink. I then stamped a Victorian Lace background stamp onto it with Close to Cocoa ink. To get the "love you" phrase, I took a "love" and a "thank you" stamp and masked the two to get the phrase I wanted.
