Father's Day Wishes

 Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I have for you a brightly colored Father's Day card.  I've incorporated a chalk paint background that I made on a Gelli Plate to coordinate with the sticker I used from Little Birdie Designs.   

So to start, I applied the chalk paint directly to my Gelli Plate in the colors of Salsa Red and Orange Splash.  I did use a little acrylic paint in bright yellow as well. I then swiped my texture tool over the paint I rolled on the plate and pulled my print to come up with the design you see here.

After the chalk paint dried, I used a sponge dauber to add some dots of the Silver Charm Shimmer paint to my project for some added shine since this was a card to celebrate someone special.

I made a quick banner with my scissors and added a greeting in navy ink from the stamp set Loads of Wishes.  After adding my sticker, I finished up with some Pearl Drops in Tangelo Citrus and a combination of Aqua Drop/Jade Isle.  I like to mix drop colors if I need a particular hue that Little Birdie doesn't have.  I think I was able to get closer to the blue on my card base and the collar/dots in the shirt sticker.

I hope you enjoy this bright and colorful card I created to celebrate Father's Day.  I thought it was a fun way to incorporate these adorable stickers :) Enjoy!
