One More Father's Day Card

Well I had such a difficult time making the first father's day card, wouldn't it figure that I would have to make another one? This time the challenge was to make a father's day card for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog. I used one of my favorite Tildas- Sweetheart Tilda.

She's an oldy, but a goody! I placed her in an over sized chair to look like she is sitting in her Daddy's chair. I paper pieced the chair with some of the background paper (June Bug from Basic Grey). Tilda is colored with copic markers. The reds in her dress range from R24-R29, the blue in her socks is B39, her hair is a combination of E35, YR23, and Y21. Skin is R20 for her cheeks, E02, YR000, and E000. I also tried a new technique of ribbon pleating with the yellow ribbon. Not very hard and I think it added an interesting touch. I stamped the sentiment from Label Accents in red ink and cut it out with my labels 8 nestabilitie. I wouldn't say this card is exactly masculine, but it's not as girly as my other cards so maybe I'm on the right track.
