Father's day card-JDA Challenge

Finally i managed to create a card for Junior de artist shop! they have speciall challenge that i found it the most challenging ever!!!First, i dont do manly card normally, second I have lost my mojo recently, third, i dont really do distress-rustic looking, Fourth, i dont really do blue colour card,  lastly the shop required use to use DCWV paper only!!! T_T
So in summary i took me 5 days to create a card for this challenge T_T. But i am quite happy with the result as i put a lot of things and did few techniques on it.

This is 2 sided card (i dont have 12" x 12" DCWV cardstock or PP so i just use whatever 8"x8" pattern paper that i have on hand). But this card all of the paper comes from the same series. It is DCWV Retro series.

So here is the card.

Paper use :DCWV-Retro series;distress inks- peeled paint,scattered straw,frayed burlap;Crayons-creta colour, Inks- Versafine-onyx black, Satin red,spanish moss, Stickles, clear embossing powder,bo bunny ribbons, maya road tag, martha stewart puncher, canvas paper-prima marketing,jillibean stamp, stampavie stamp-mo manning-soaking up the joy; adornit stickers,buttons,string, brads-tim holtz;heart shape puncher,ek success circle puncher.

Details 1:
Canvas paper are distress by peeled paint and scattered straw. The way i distress is straight away pad the canvas to the inks so that it will create a strong line from the distress inks square pad shape.
For the heart shape-i punched heart shaped few times on DCWV paper (i think about 10 pcs). Glue it together so that create some dimension.

Details 2:
Stamp that i use is from Jillibean brand-Top ten.
Firstly i stamped the image on the transparancy use versafine ink-spanish moss and quickly i poured clear embossing powder and heat it. I also stamp several images (numbers) on the pattern paper and emboss it with clear embossing powder. Once all done, i stamped the notes image use versamark on the pattern paper- just to get guidance to write the sentiments. Once finish, i stick the transparancy on the pattern paper.

Detail 3:
I love this little lady expression. For me it is suitable for fathers day because the little lady look like lookip up to the father and happily said HAPPY FATHERS DAY! (like a little daughter). I stamped the little lady with versafine and emboss it with clear embossing powder. Follow with coloured it use cretacolour crayons. For the background i distress used peeled paint and scattered straw.Applied a little bit stickles for her skirt-star dust.

Detail 4:
both black bo bunny ribbon-solid and translucent are tied together. place the button with the string in the middle.

Detail 5:
Placed some alphas stickers from adornit. Once done,i applied versamark embossing pad to the whole tag and emboss it with clear embossing powder. The reason is to seal up the sticker,as this is pull out tag, the sticker may peel off.

Paper-DCWV Retro,Black leave-daiso, string, scattered straw distress inks, hero arts stamp-owl,adornit stickers, stickles,buttons,crafty secret stamp-a little notes,spellbinder.

Details 1:
Cut paper use Spellbinder circle puncher, distress it with scattered straw, place several buttons on the left and right

Detail 2:
Cut two pcs of pattern paper, distress it with scattered straw. Tied string with the criss cross pattern, at the end tied ribbon shape and place button on top of it.

Stamped owl on the transparancy use staz on. Apply stickles on the back of the image.

This part is the hardest ever! As i mentioned earlier, the card is 2 sided, so that i have to make sure it will be able to stand. So I have tried my best to create "legs" to hold the card. The legs are punched from pattern paper use fiskar puncher heart shape. Before i punch the paper, i fold it into 2 so that can be open left and right. It is also create butterfly look like. I punched  hole on the folded heartshape use cropadile.attach leaves and the paper with tim holtz brads.
Oh my..hopefully it will stay stand! as the card pretty heavy!
Wish me luck
