card for my golf loving Dad, found the image online, knew it was perfect as my father is balding on top just like the image :)
green paper from "It's a man's world" and the blue paper from a baby scrapbook kit i got,
image coloured in with Promarkers,
Face: Ivory all over then Blush for shade and Vanilla for a little more shade, some Dusty Pink on the nose and ear tips,
Hair and shoes: Henna
Golf club: Cool Grey 1, handle of club: Cool Grey 4
Golf shirt: sky blue, i found some pink ribbon i had with a diamond design on it, thought it looked very "golfy" so cut a bit to put on the bottom of the t-shirt.
Grass: Meadow Green
Trousers: i drew lines on them to make checks with Cool Grey 4
next i printed out FORE! in Blue, cut each letter out and stuck them to the top of the card, drew a black outline round each letter, and used a glitter glue round each letter to define them more, then i added "you" and "Dad" in peel-off stickers.
i thought it would be cool if i could have a hole flag on the card, i took some wire i had from some other embellishments and cut a triangle from yellow card and popped two holes in it and slid it onto the wire, then i wrote 18 on the flag, i put a yellow eyelet onto the bottom corner of the card to be the hole the flag stands in.
next i cut out "On Father's Day" that i had printed in the same blue and font and stuck it to the inside.
we'll see on Sunday what my dad thinks :)
