I thought I'd try to combine the TLC and CC challenges on this one. And I thought I'd use these Our Daily Bread designs images to make a Father's Day card.
For the TLC (brayered paper), I used a brayer and a rainbow pad to do the background and sentiment strip. Before using the brayer, I put down some drywall mesh to get this cool grid pattern. The beach scene was stamped w/ the lapis ink onto vellum and I used markers on the backside for a little soft color. I used some trimmed off strips to make a little frame around the vellum.
For the CC, I used the pear pizzazz, concord crush and a teeny bit of the blushing bride (right at the horizon). I hope it ok that there are a couple of extra colors in the mix. My finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! It will be on my blog in just a bit: The Write Stuff

This is such a peaceful, wonderful card.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
