Best of British Father's day card

So this is my second blog today, your all gonna want me to blog off soon lol! I've gone into technique overload here, it's not the most attractive card not sure I like it but I was experimenting. 8x8 craft card, Portobello Rd papers layered background, embossed red & blue craft coredinations with portobello rd folder and sanded, then on A4 white paper just made check pattern with dabber style distress inks in various colours, then splatted them randomly with same colours, I used this as a background for resist stamping with clear embossing powder, large Union flag by Indigoblu, bus, taxi and phone box, portobello rd stamps, all inked over with faded jeans distress ink, same technique for tag which is spellbinder nestie, and red, white and blue felt to create tag tails and fixed with Tim Holtz screw top brad. Tell me what you think? Thanks for your time xxxx happy jubilee weekend :)

Wow, this is certainly different for you! I like it, but not as much as your 'very pretty' cards xxx (but then you can't really do 'pretty' for men )
