Father's Day card!

Good afternoon Lovelies! I'd like to start by saying a huge "THANK YOU" to you all for the kind and lovely comments you leave me, it really does make my day! And makes my head bigger lol x

Before I show my card I wanted to let you know that this week on the SpodgeAway blog they are doing a "back where it all began" week, focussing on the amazing SplodgeAway mat, I have done a mini picture tutorial on very basic blending, some people struggle with blending, I must say it took a while for me to master it but with the help of the SplodgeAway mat it has made blending seemlessly, much easier!

Now onto my card!

I've made this for my wonderful step Dad, he's not particularly into boats, but I was itching to use my new stamp lol! The stamps are by Inkylicious and the Embossing folder is a numbers one side and letters the other by Spellbinders, I first stamped the background with Almanac stamp which is like a ledger, in sepia versafine ink then blended DI Shabby shutters and tumbled glass over it then ran through E-Bosser to emboss I edged lightly with forest moss then rubbed over the raised pattern with gold gilding wax by cosmic shimmer, the topper I used the same inks to blend then stamped the gorgeous image with a dark green versafine ink, matted onto dark green card from Papermill direct onto a Kraft card base bit of twine and voila! Hope you like it? Thank you for visiting, have a great day xx
