It’s time for the Festive Friday Challenge, where every challenge is a party! For FF0009, we are celebrating Father’s Day with a Die Cut twist.  You can create a card to celebrate Father’s Day (June 17th), or a card featuring a die cut, or a card or project that combines both! Whatever way you decide to create is fine with us! We would love to have you play along, so don’t forget to link up.

This week, I created a watercolored masculine card for Father’s Day using the Waterfront and Rooted in Nature stamp sets.  I stepped outside of my comfort zone for this one.  I hope you enjoy it!

Colors of the Day

And the following new colors:  Balmy Blue, Berry Bushel, Shaded Spruce and Merlot

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Watercoloring takes center stage on today’s card! An aqua painter was used to create a wash of Pool Party for the sky.  Images from the Waterfront set were used to create the Crumb Cake mountain, Balmy Blue and Berry Bushel water, and Shaded Spruce trees.  The cute little bushes that you see in Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green were actually created using the palm fronds image.  The large pine tree is from the new set, Rooted in Nature.

As you can tell from the close-up, I added accents with Whisper White ink, Soft Suede ink, and Lovely Lipstick.

One of my favorite parts on the card is the leaf image from Rooted in Nature, accented with a copper Leaves Trinket and Linen Thread.  And in case you are wondering from what set “Dad” is, it is from Apron of Love.
