Try It Out Tuesday #22 - Beer Fairy?!

Happy Tuesday out there in blog land! Welcome to another Try it Out Tuesday {#22}. This week over on the SCACD store blog, DT leader Suzanne Dean challenged us to make a Father's Day card and gift. Since most of the stamps that I have from the Susana Custom Art and Card Design Store are girly, I had to improvise!! Heck, this is all my DH probably wants for Father's Day anyway, LOL, so it fits great! Here is a view of just the card:

And here is a view of the inside of the card:

The colors I chose for this project are Ballet Blue and YoYo Yellow {to match the Miller Lite cans}. I Cuttlebugged the Ballet Blue background piece in Houndstooth to make it more "manly". The sentiments on the front and the inside were done on the computer.

I stamped Miss Sassafras from Faerie Song Art Stamps {available at Susana's Store} in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added some highlights with the Ranger white gel pen when she was all colored. Her wings are painted with Silver Bells Shimmerz. I cut the ovals for the image and mat using the Classic Oval Nestabilities. The main image and the long sentiment on the front of the card are on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to visit the SCACD store blog for more Father's Day gift ideas. You can also visit the rest of the SCACD design team's blogs individually by clicking the links on my left sidebar. See you tomorrow for the FIRST PREVIEW of the new series of Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD!!! It's going to be so much fun, these new images are FABULOUS, I know you'll love them as much as I do!
