It’s Business Time er, time to make Father’s Day cards…the mojo is not exactly flowing but I did manage to make two prototypes.  Of course, once I completed them I realized that they were similar in colour so I need to come up with something different next time (hopefully tomorrow!).

My first card uses a cute WS fishing stamp.  It also uses copious amounts of retired Marigold Morning cardstock.  I have too much left over even though cardstock is the one thing I don’t hoard.  I also have a lot of Cranberry Crisp but have put a good dent in the Buckaroo Blue (have I mentioned how stupid I feel when reciting SU cardstock colours?  It’s why I’ve stopped listing the supplies used at the end of my posts).

I think I’m getting a better handle on watercolouring lately.  I still have some issues with it but considering how much I hate colouring and how I’ve never been good at it I’m usually pleased with the end results (having such adorable images to colour helps too!).  Here’s today’s card:

Note the awesome shading on the hat and the overalls.  I also made another one of those ribbellishments (hey, they need a name, okay?  I can’t just keep calling them ribbon/button thingys) and made another computer-generated sentiment – I prefer to spend my stamping money on images rather than text.

As mentioned, the cardstock is marigold morning.  The PP is K&Co.  I’ve bought a lot of their papers in the last month or so…they’ve come out with some fabulous designs this year.  It’s probably my favourite paper which is saying a lot since I am addicted to Basic Grey…I just find the K&Co more versatile.

The button is Basic Grey – probably from the Bittersweet line.  The ribbon, I think, is American Crafts – or something else that starts with “A”.  I got it in a kit at Kent about a year and a half ago – it could be AMM.

I *might* add some glitter to the fish to give the card a little bling but I’m going to sleep on it.  Less is more, right?
