A Good Man – Congratulations (Weekend Challenge – A Simple Sketch)

This week’s Weekend Challenge to keep you stamping is another Simple Sketch.  Keep it simple or add a little more.  The choice is yours.  Additional inspiration: Colors – Color Throw Down (#641) and Theme – The Spot Challenge (#160).

And this is the result:


If you do know me well you will know that I love to collect paper…and Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is a biggie.  I took a tour through my collection and selected a few sheets in the colors that coordinated with the color challenge.

  • The background panel (3¾” x 5”) is from Parker’s Patterns and the strip panel (1½” x 4¾”) is from Needlepoint Nook.
  • For my focal image (2¼” x 3¼’), I chose the Beach Dad from the A Good Man stamp set.  This is the right image to congratulate a fellow for his hard work and his license to relax in retirement.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and colored with a Blender Pen for a water colored effect. Shorts and Hat – Balmy Blue, Tee Shirt – Real Red and Beach Chair – Crumb Cake .
  • The sentiment, Congratulations, from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set, was stamped in Real Red ink at the bottom of the panel.
  • The accent mat (2½” x 3½”) is Balmy Blue.

I selected to adhere all the elements on to a Crumb Cake card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”).  I added three Star Designer Elements for the suggested buttons on the strip panel.  They add a nice touch and a bit of bling.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda!
