Father's Day Sketch

Happy Hump day! I know that I'm getting this post up a little late but like most of my projects, this card took a little longer than I had anticipated to finish :) This card was made for this week's sketch challenge over at SCS. I am so happy with the way that it turned out that this is going to be the card that I give Matt for Father's Day.

All images are from the new set Dadisms, stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black, colored with colored pencils and blended with OMS. There is a lot of layering going on in this scene but that's just how I roll :-D Some of the images (the curtains, lamp shade, chair, shirt & pants) were stamped onto various designer papers, cut out and paper pieced onto the image. I then used colored pencils to shade. All of the panels were stitched with my sewing machine to add more texture.

Although making these types of cards tends to be labor intensive, they are my favorite to create! To me it feels like I'm actually creating a piece of art instead of just making a card :)
