sample- crafty pad new release...

Morning everyone... The sun is still shining! Hoorah... I hope you are managing to enjoy it!
Here is a sample that I have made for the new release digi at the crafty pad... this one is dad and tool box
perfect for both a birthday card and fathers' day...
There are also a set of papers available that will compliment the digi perfectly...

So for my sample this morning I decided that I would use subtle tines in the colouring of the image and use this along with bolder colours for the background and panels of the card.
I think that this works well and the DSP that I selected for the background of the card co-ordinates perfectly with the image...

The card I made...

I have mounted the image on red and blue card and I have inked the edges. For the sentiment I punched out the 'happy fathers day' and mounted this again on both red and blue - the centre punch is coloured in a red pro-marker to match the card used.  I have used silicone on the sentiment to enable it to stand away from the image...

I hope you like my card and thanks for looking - your comments as always are much appreciated... Thank you for taking the time to visit...
