Greetings one and all. I treated myself to Tim's men stamps on Friday so was delighted to see Hel's challenge over on Sunday Stampers for this fathers day is My Guy, and so has given me a good excuse to break them in! I have had a lovely Sunday with My Guy, as our three daughters all met up at No 1's home and contributed to a lovely feast for him, which included my dearest son-in-law and edible grandson and No 3's fab. boyfriend so it was a houseful! I got back a little while ago and hot-footed it to the craft room to come up with this card.
Firstly I inked a background on a large Kraft blank with coffee archival and a watch backgound stamp. Then I had a eureka moment. I couldn't remember where I put my black card stock, so I cut up some black fun foam instead - guess what? It's brilliant as it gives depth to the card without making the front weigh heavy against the back. Must remember this one! Then I took some gold paper and some black and white ledger paper from my stash and ran a piece of white card stock through the vagabond with the clock embossing folder. This was duly coloured with Rusty Hinge, Weathered Wood and Vintage Paper inks and the edges distressed and inked with Black Soot. The man has been given the water colour treatment with my distress markers, then I used photo corners and distress painted a glary silver watch embelishment with Distress Paints and it looks better for it I might add! The sentiment was mounted on black fun foam and there we go! I never have men cards in my stock, so this will come in handy. Hope you have all had a lovely Sunday with your Guys, I'm settling down later with a glass of vino d'plonk to enjoy the White Queen. Thanks for looking. x
