Daddy's Day - Tiddly Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  This week at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog we are challenging you to make those ever so hard to make Masculine cards - and specifically for Father's day!  I decided to use the new image Lilli Claire Party Time from Tiddly Inks as she looks a lot like our youngest.  Each girl makes a Father's day card for my hubs but the baby is a bit small - so I make the front and she colors the inside for her daddy.  I started with my papers and chose Copics around that first.
I enjoy making backgrounds with my images and this week I stuck with a simple one and pulled colors from my image to added dots all around Lilli Claire.  I also trimmed out her dress ribbon to lay on top of the sentiment.
I think when it comes to a masculine card simple is best - unless you have a lot of manly embellishments and really I don't have too many so simple was the best for me.  I did add some baker's twine and a matching button.
The sentiment was generated on my computer using the Comic Sans font.  Lastly, I took a black 0.2mm Copic pen and added a little doodle around the outside edge.  I used my Tim Holtz Antique Linen and very lightly inked the edge of the sentiment and picture - almost forgot about that!  Hey, there are adorable new manly images in the shop too!  So take a look right HERE!
Looking for more Tiddly Ink Manly images for our challenge - here are a few!



Please grab any Tiddly Ink image and join our challenge this week!  You could win a $10 gift voucher to Tiddly Inks or be featured on our Fabulous Inky Friday!

  5. I agree, CAS does sometimes work best for Masculine cards. They can be so tricky.

    I love your confetti dotted background. Your hubby will love it. I know I love the doodles my little ones do on the insides of my Mother's Day card.
