#1 Grill Master is Tagged!

Hello friends!
Welcome to the start of the weekend!  Do you have any plans?
I have some plans for a fun weekend with friends and crafting...more projects away from my comfort zone, but it's always fun to try and learn new things, right?!  If anything I make is "decent", I may be brave enough to post!  :)

So with Father's Day approaching, I know that I will need to make up a few cards for all of the fathers that are in my life including my own father.  I also wanted to be sure to play along with a challenge that will be ending very shortly:
I think this stamp set from Newton's Nook called Winston's BBQ is too cute!  Besides the Doxie stamps they have, I think Winston is probably my next fave!  I have stamped him on a stitched tag that I've die cut out and then I took some striped paper from my stash and paper pieced his apron with it.  To cover up the pocket on the front, I used my white gel pen and shaded around it with my Copic markers.

The background lettering was stamped using some sentiments from the same stamp set with white ink over Kraft card stock.  I matched up the striped papers for the strip with the base of my card.  I topped the tag with some white ribbon and linen thread and then popped the tag up over the card with some foam dots.

I've used Copics to color in Winston and then used the white gel pen to cover up his striped paper pocket on the front of his apron.  I've also used a silver gel pen to color in his spatula and the trimming along his pocket.  The grass was flicked on with several Copic markers.

Hope you've enjoyed my card today and I wish you all a wonderful and happy weekend!
Thanks for dropping in!

He's a little cutie Vicki..love his paper pieced apron..I get my canvases from totally different shops than you probably have..but most art departments have them..I buy packs of four for $12..they are the thin ones and very strong though..thick cardboard really already gesso'd..or proper canvases 16cm x 8cm..from our local emporiums..I gesso them all even though they say they are..hope that helps..

luv CHRISSYxx

The BBQ theme works well for a man. They are usually the ones getting the task of doing the BBQ In my family too. The paper pieced apron is a nice touch and great idea to keep to the same pattern as the strip behind he tag. Sweet!
