Creative Creations Challenges - For you Dad

Morning! Wow this is a miracle for me - two posts within a couple of days! I have been so busy with stuff its crazy! I would love to tell you that things will calm down in a few weeks - but no sooner will all the stress be over it will them be summer holidays! 

Anyway I'm here today with the latest challenge at Creative Creations Challenges - we had a great turn out last week well done to everyone that joined in, remember to pop to the blog to see if you were our lucky winner! 

So onto this weeks challenge - we have a fantastic and very appropriate challenge for you this week - 

For you Dad

Yep were looking for your Fathers Day Creations. We have a wonderful sponsor this week 

The team were lucky enough to have some steps from Indigo Blu to work with - I know the team had so much fun with them :) 

I got to work with xxxx as my set - I have to say at first I was somewhat stumped - its been a while since I had the stamps and inks out - but my word did I enjoy getting messy! I even managed to make two cards this week! 

First up I kept it simple, I used the cogs stamps with my TH Walnut Stain ink to stamp the background, using my brush I then distressed the background using Tea Dye.  I stamped the layered pieces in black Memento and distressed them with the tea dye, I layered them onto Kraft and stuck them with silicone.  

The twine is from my stash I also ran that through the Tea Dye to make it blend more, the farm was added using twine to secure it. 

I have to say I LOVE how this card has turned out! I would like to enter the card above into the following challenges; 

Craft Lovin Challenges - Fathers Day 
Crazy 4 Challenges - Fathers Day
Sugar Creek Hollow - Fathers Day 

I was somewhat messy after finishing it and so I decided that I was going to get more messy……. 
For this one I stamped the background up and then scrunched it, once again distressed it using my brush and TH Tea Dye, I did add a few stipples of Walnut Stain in to.  I did the same with the cogs. 

I then stamped the image again but this time only very lightly distressed it.  

Well I hope you like my creations, I had so much fin making them! I would like to enter the second card into the following challenges; 

Bloggers - Masculine
Inspire me Fridays - Anything Goes
Simply Create too - Fathers Day/Masculine 

Thanks for stopping by, if you have a moment I would love to know what you think! I do hope you will pop to the blog and see what the rest of the team have made :) See you again soon
