Father's Day

This one is for my Dad. If you knew my Dad, you would understand the band-aids ;o) We phone him for help on every project and as our closest neighbor we are extremely lucky to have him 'on call'. He is very handy, they built their own house, so he's a great neighbor to have. But everytime he and the Husband do a project, one of them bleeds. They usually take turns, but someone always gets a minor injury.
This is also my DT card for The Poodles Parlour Father's Day Challenge. We are sponsored this challenge by Kenny K. And generously sponsored for every challenge by The Digi Garden. So many chances to win! Love it!
I printed and cut the image using my Silhouette. I then printed 3 more copies. They are colored using PrismaColor pencils, although I did color most of my bottom layer with a dark gray marker so you wouldn't see the white as I was layering. I then cut out my layered pieces. Using the back of my 1/32 plastic tsp. I rubbed the back of my pieces adding the dimension to them. I then used small foam pop dots cut to size to layer my pieces on top of my base image. I also colored some of the foam dots with my gray marker as well. Just the ones on the small pieces that you may be able to see from the side. The band-aids are a Silhouette image that I used the sketch pen feature to draw on my pink cardstock, cut them out, and then ran through my printer to add the sentiments.
My lessons learned: I really prefer the pop dots to silicone glue. They are so much neater and cleaner and still hold the shape up very well. I think as I get braver I may even layer more pieces but I wanted to start fairly simply.
I look forward to seeing your Father's Day creations!

I am seriously jealous! I love the print and cutting that you've done with your Silhouette! I'm still too intimidated to even try that feature, but you did such a fantastic job! Thank you so much for joining us at PaperPlay Challenges! :)
