Here is my take on this month's Sketch & Dare Challenge!

I decided to create a "Father's Day Card" with this month's sketch.

Sadly I forgot to add my Dare part, which is to use fabric but don't be sad for long,
this means I will make another project using fabric to come soon!!

With Father's Day just around the corner I wanted to get a jump start.
 I have a great stash of  scrap booking papers and embellishments by
 Bo Bunny and Tim Holtz that are 
the perfect color tones and rustic feel for men cards.

I had a blast flipping through all the lovely Die-Namites Dies I have
on hand, and couldn't resist using this one.

Bamboo Sticks

Digging deep into my stash of textures paste, arcylic glaze and
distress inks. I followed the sketch design and cut the papers for the layers.
Die cut the "Bamboo Sticks" in Kraft paper, painted on the 
Silks arcylic glaze over the whole die cut pieces.

Then using a platte knife I spread on the Viva Colour-Ferro Paste
over the die cut pieces which adds a ton of texture and it dries super fast.

The best part of using Die-Namites Dies is that you can take the
die cut pieces and cut them apart to help tucking the pieces in here and there.
As well has cutting them apart to use in a different way then 
what the image is calling for. Great depth with Die-Namites Dies.

Thanks for stopping by today,
