Festive Friday # 31 - Inspiration Photo

Once again it's Festive Friday time! For this week it's time to be inspired by this photo and make a Father's day card:

I must admit I struggled a little with this one. When I  first saw this photo I  thought "cars and vintage", but I have no car stamps and I'm not the greatest at vintage style. So I pulled my inspiration from the colours, I used cherry cobbler, basic black, soft suede, very vanilla and crumb cake and the I used "Best Dad ever" stamp set. 

I started by sponging all over the very vanilla panel with crumb cake and the same with the image panel. I then took my scissors to the edges of both pieces and 'roughed' them up a little. The image panel was then stamped with the ties in soft suede and cherry cobbler and layered onto basic black. I then stamped the background panel with the ties in crumb cake, but I stamped off the ties to get a softer look. "Dad" was cut out using my alphabet die cuts and I'm not sure if you can see behind each letter is a whisper white shadow, just like on the sign in the photo. I would say this is an attempt of vintage and I'm pretty happy with the end result.

So how does the picture inspire you? Link up your creation to Nicole's blog, we love seeing what you come up with :)

Thanks for looking.

  1. Fabulous card...great design and I love the background stamping. I didn't fare so well with this challenge....I just kept adding elements because I wasn't happy with the card...I should have kept it simple! :)
