~Daddy's Boy~

This is one of my favourite pics of my hubby and youngest son. It was therefore an obvious joice to use for my layout for the May Fathers Day call at SNR.  I also used my March Swirlydoos kit for this LO. The colour palett of this kit works for both femanine and masculine layouts.

I used the "remember"die that came in the kit. I covered the design with a scrap piece of cardstock and then inked a border using some Ranger vintage photo and Walnut stain distress ink.

I used some of my Prima masks for the corners and to border the bottom of photograph. I again used a combination of the vintage photo and walnut stain distress inks. I used an old makeup sponge for easier control and dabbed the ink in a tight circular motion for even coverage.

My floral cluster is made up of a combination of black petaloo blooms which came in the swirlydoos kit and some Gardenia's that I bought at I also used my Heartfelt creation leaf stamps which I cut out and inked.

There were also some Petaloo CMC large daisy petals in the swirly's kit. I used one of the small petals which I inked the petal tips and then folded into thirds with some distress ink. I added a brass vintage charm and made the stem using Prima pearls. I added some mini skeleton leaves to complete.

I really enjoyed working on this LO and the TPC papers from the Swirly's kits was just perfect for this picture.
