Very Bold Brights!

I tend to neglect the Bold Brights for some reason, so I decided to use them today.  I love the Thoughts of Father set, because it's so versatile.  Even the sentiment – "Thinking of You on Father's Day" – can be used with markers to create several different sentiments.  (Thinking of You, Father, Father's Day; Thinking of Father; King Father; Inking Father….ok, maybe that's going to too far.)

Anyway — Here's yet another thank you card (I think I'm down to 50!!) that isn't pink and green.

Lavender_thanks It's much brighter IRL.  And I really, really try to use only current SU! products, but I have all these eyelets…..I bought them and never used them because setting them was a pain.  Then I got the Crop-a-dile – and WOW!  What fun eyelets were!  But then the eyelets (except for the metallic ones) all retired.  Bummer.  The brass metallic would look really nice on this also, though.  I suppose I should give away all my retired eyelets as door prizes, but then they'd come back into the catalog.  So….I have a drawer full.  Yes, My name is Buffy, and I'm a hoarder……

Supplies (all SU!):
Stamp Sets:  Eight Great Greetings, Thoughts of Father
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Watercolor pencils
Paper:  Whisper White, Yoyo Yellow, Orchid Opulence, Tangerine Tango
Accessories:  Big Shot, Texturz Plates Kit #4, Impressions Pad, Silicone Rubber, Lovely Lilac eyelets (retired), Crop-a-dile, Yoyo Yellow grosgrain (oops – also retired.  Just dye some white with chalk or markers), Small, Large & Scallop Oval punches, Stampin' Dimensionals, Aqua Painter

That's it for today.  We actually had sunshine, and it was wonderful.  Although I'm not complaining about the rain.  We need it, and I'm very grateful.  But sun is nice too.

    Very nice card! I like how you turned the oval vertical, that may have never occurred to me! Use those eyelets. Think how much room you’d have if you used up all the retired stuff and could buy more 🙂

    Love it! You did a beautiful job of coloring.
    I, too, am a hoarder and have no intention of giving my stash away. I may not be able to demo it, but I WILL work my way through it……. eventually.

    I reallly like the look of the vertical oval. Thanks for the inspiration. BTW…I hoard too! I think it is a requirement of crafters!
