Cardz 4 Guyz - Father's Day

Good Morning all, i hope you all enjoyed some weekend sunshine.  I can't believe how fast the fortnights go, its time for a new challenge over at cardz4guyz with the theme this time being:


So i thought it was the ideal theme for my dad using my new Katzelkraft farm animal stamps.  These really are quirky. 

First I stamped the cow, sheep, pig, duck & cockeral and coloured them in with inktense pencils and cut them out.  I then cut a panel of white card, stamped the cow, sheep & pig, it doesn't matter that they overlapped as i only needed the legs as i laid the cut out versions on top.  I inked a simple sky and grass background.  

Using my new stitched hexagon dies i die cut a white frame and stamped my greeting on the bottom.  I then mounted this over my topper with foam tape, layered onto black cardstock and then white base card cut to the hexagon shape.  I then added my animals with glue gel, adding a bit of shape first.  I added glossy accents to their eyes.  Finished size approx 7x7"

Close up on the animals, the colours i went with are loosely based on the colour of animals he owns - Normandy cow, tamworth pig, shetland duck, suffolk sheep.  The cockeral is cheekily photo bombing the scene as he is cheeky like that. 

and the insert, that cheeky cockeral is about again😀

Items used:
Katzelkraft stamps - KTZ208 'La Ferme des Animaux'
Derwent inktense pencils
Stitched hexagon die set
Glossy accents

Please do hop over to cardz4guyz to join in and see what everyone comes up with for Father's day - it will soon be upon us. 

I hope you all have a good week and thank you for stopping by and waving hello to all of you that are following by email👋.  Emma
