Getting into the Swing of Father's Day by Josafine

I love Guest Posts!

Josafine and I met almost 6 months ago. She did a wonderful project using Kelly Klapstein's Brush letter word stamps. Since then, Josafine has continued to create and occasionally integrate some EC products into her day to day, and I just LOVE her style. So I knew I had to have her back.

Please welcome Josafine and enjoy her fantastic fantastic Father's Day project mini tutorial and video!

Hi everyone, Getting into the Swing of Father's Day by Josafine

I'm so excited to be guest designing for Emerald Creek again. This time I'm sharing a wood panel with you that is perfect for Father's Day or in general as a present for dads, granddads, husbands, etc. (or you just keep it for yourself :P )


Here is how I created this project:
  • I started by prepping my wood panel with regular white gesso and acrylic paints in green, blue and yellow.
  • To add the texture, I blended Versamark ink through a stencil and used Charred Gold embossing powder for a shimmering effect at the bottom.
  • Next I used the Vintage Pram stamp and stamped just parts of the tires with Versamark. Then I embossed it using the Candy Orange embossing powder (Isn't that orange perfect for the blue/ green background?)


  • Now I needed something in the upper right corner to balance the entire image, so I used the same stencil as before, blended Versamark ink through it and heat embossed it with Allure Fractured Ice embossing powder.
  • After everything was dry and cooled down, I adhered a scrap piece of fabric to the bottom of the panel. This was a left over from one of my mono printing sessions and it fit perfectly with all the shades of green and blue.


  • Next, I stamped the Golfer onto a gray tag, distressed the edges and popped it up with foam tape. A little bow completed the tag.
  • Because I love the little gemstones so much, I had to add a few of them next to the tag.


You can also watch the process in my video. This way you'll see how amazing the embossing powders are. I'm always in aaaw while melting them.



Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did :D

And a big thanks to Kim for having me!!!
