(RC) Hoot Hoot Hooray, It's Father's Day!



Hey there! Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there! I know I am so blessed to have such a great partner and father to my boys, in my husband! He is truly one of the BEST! And my dad is pretty fantastic as well~ he is such a super 'papa' to all his grandkids and always there for my brothers and I when we need him. We are a lucky family!


I coloured this guy, Oliver from Reverse Confetti, up about a week ago (minus the shirt and tie, which I decided to paper piece)…Sometimes I'll colour up the basics of an image before I know what I am going to do with it, just to save time. I am a person who usually picks paper first, and I colour to match, so this way I can get lots of the colouring done before I get to that step ;) I also added in the glasses last minute (they were stamped in craft ink (SU) and embossed with black powder onto acetate and fussy cut out)…I think this one will go to my FIL for Father's Day because, well, my dad does NOT wear a tie unless someone dies. And even that is a stretch. He actually only owns one tie and I remember he had to buy it for my wedding, 15 years ago. And he was worried it wouldn't be 'fancy enough' for his only daughters wedding because it has horses on it, LOL!! My hubby is also not much of a suit and tie kinda guy….but his dad is! And he also got some pretty fancy new specs that have big black rims! I think it's a good match ;)


So yeah, Oliver is coloured with copics (warm greys and E40's) and that shirt and tie are pieced with DP from Authentique. I like to add a little shading onto the DP when I piece so it doesn't look so 'flat' compared to the rest of the image. The circle dies are MFT and I added in a little tab from the Office Edges Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti as well. I added in a wooden star embellie from MME and black enamel dots (I believe they are MME as well). The sketch layout is of course SSSC….yes, it's that time again! We'd love to have you play with us this week! Here it is:
