Deckchair Dreaming


Yesterday I managed to get my dad's Father's Day card made, so for once I won't be on the last minute to get it posted ! :-)

I decided to go with a theme of relaxing and chilling out, based primarily on this darling LotV stamp "Deckchair Dreaming" which I have had since last year ... and is another one which has never seen ink!! The concept of the deckchair put me in the mood for some co-ordinating paper, so I downloaded me some nice fresh stripy paper from Pink Petticoat which I am sure I will use many times in the future.  Here's the result of my efforts.


I have to say that I did struggle a bit with this stamp ... I have quite a lot of LotV stamps and most give really good impressions, but I do have a couple that don't stamp a very good image and unfortunately this is one of them. It took quite a few attempts but I got there in the end!

Stamps: LotV "Deckchair Dreaming"; Fizzy Moon "Special Dad";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Pink Petticoat "Stripes" printed in "quartz";
Supplies: Papermania star gems; raffia lace from Hobbycraft.
