Happy Birthday, Dad!

Hello and welcome...
My dad's Birthday is coming up soon so I've made this card for him. It's also my design team project for this month challenge at Ally's Angels the theme is anything goes. 



I started by making a background using watercolor paper and distress oxide sprays vintage photo, walnut stain and squeezed lemonade. I used distress ink black soot to ink the edges before sanding them. I used the mixed media die set 3 from Tim Holtz to make a brick stencil and then used it together with opaque texture paste from Ranger. I let the paste soak up some of the oxide spray colors from the background and then added distress oxide rusty hinge, ground espresso and black soot. When completely dry I sanded lightly on top.


I used Archival ink black and stamps from the distinguished and #hastags sets to stamp onto my background. I glued one of the idea-ology mini hardware pulls together with two hardware heads on top of the left hand side and colored it with some black gesso.


I die cut the pipes in chipboard using the pipeline die from Tim Holtz and used distress oxides vintage photo, walnut stain and squeezed lemonade. I then added some grit paste mixed with distress paint black soot on top. I inked the edges and the grit paste using distress ink black soot and then sanded the edges. The wheel and other black chipboard details are colored with black gesso then sanded.


I die cut the voltage die in watercolor paper and colored it the same way as I did my background. I used distress ink black soot to ink the edges and then sanded them. I stamped the number scale from the professor stamp set with archival ink black.


I colored the tag the same way as my background and I die cut 'DAD' in chipboard using the deco die and covered the letters completely in black gesso then sanded them. I glued four idea-logy hardware heads, one on each corner. The text is from the distinguished stamp set. I finished by cutting a short piece of a ball chain and added it to the tag.



To create the small heart I used the faceted heart die from Tim Holtz. I used watercolor paper and colored with distress oxide sprays squeezed lemonade and a touch of vintage photo. The edges are inked in black soot. I manage to put a jump ring on the top of the heart so I could use a swivel clasp to hang the heart from the pipe. I attached a typed token and a story stick metal embellishments to the chain.

The base of my card is kraft and I then have a panel I created using watercolor paper and distress paints, stencils and crackle glaze and on top of that a panel with corrugated cardboard covered in clear gesso and then colored with distress ink black soot. My oxide spray background is glued on top of the corrugated cardboard.

Hugs, Lisa
