Father's Day

>> Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Hi Everyone,
My card today features the sleepy little sea side scene named Seaside Dock, which is a great masculine stamp for a Father's Day card.  I colored it with my Copic markers, die cut it out and sponged on some blue ink around the edges.

I recently bought this lighthouse embossing folder specifically to use with this stamp.  I sponged on some white ink to highlight it better and added the On Father's Day greeting which I stamped in Versamark before embossing it in white powder. 

I bought a grab bag of crafty lace and ribbon scraps eons ago, and inside was this applique of a ship's wheel.  I must have tried to toss it a half a dozen times, (deciding against it in the end and keeping it in my stash) and it worked out great for this card's theme.  See, ya just never know when something will come in handy.  At least this is what I tell my husband when he wants to purge odd bits of stuff :)  And lastly I will mention that twine looks nautical and masculine, and the red color on the side, balanced out the sentiment and image.

Thanks for stopping by!
