Masculine take for Sweet Stampin Challenge and Blog Candy Winner

A Masculine take for the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog's theme: 
Father's Day, Special Man, Special Boy

Here is my fun take.  It was an idea floating in my head for personalizing a card for Grandpa on his Birthday. Grandpa happens to love Beer and has a Beer at the end of every day while relaxing in his favorite blue recliner chair.  Using a set of "Sticko" Beer Stickers, I double matted them onto DP squares and this is the end-result....  It's funky but it sure was fun to see it come to life.

The same card, in different lighting...

Stamps: Pebbles Inc (Grandpa sentiment)
Ink: Brown Brilliance Ink
Paper:  Momenta Double Sided Masculine Designer CS, White CS
Accessories: Spellbinders Dies, Stampin' Up! Square Punch, Metallic Brads (I added these brads to the corners of the fluffy soft recliner for some extra detail), Jolee's Boutique Grandpa/Father's Day Dimensional Stickers, Sticko's International Beer Photo Assortment Stickers, Foam Tape
Techniques;  Sponging, Layering

Be sure to check out the Sweet Stampin Blog for loads of inspiration. There are great prizes up for grabs from these Super Fabulous Sponsors too....
