I Love You Dad!

Morning Folks!

Just a flying visit...I am on a cleaning day :) Bathrooms, washing, floors..blah blah...the list goes on.

I wanted to share with you a grungy, manly kind of card that I made for Father's Day. It was very much inspired by one Tami Hartley made for the Hero Arts blog a few weeks ago. Her one was a Birthday card but with a few tweaks I have made it into a Father's Day card. This is not my usual style of card, with the stamped and coloured image missing, so I have followed very closely to her design. As I get more confidence in this kind of style I will hopefully have more of my own design ideas!

First up, to make this card I stamped a background definition stamp in black ink from Verve onto grey card stock. I then gave the card a good scrunch and crumple for the distressed look. I added a couple of eyelets to the right hand side and then embossed in silver using a Hero Arts background stamp the circles.

I then painted a wash of white acrylic paint across the centre and once it was dry I added the sentiment. Again this was from Hero Arts. Finally I die cut the star and wrapped some twine around it . Ta da...my Hero Arts inspired Father's Day card.

It is great as I can make a few of these fairly quickly for all the Dad's that need a card and I even have some spare to pop in my Etsy shop :)

If you have any questions , please ask or you can go check out the link I gave you for fuller instructions on how to make this.
Thank you for stopping by.
Right back to work for me!

See you soon!

Very different. I like the subdued colours & the white acrylic paint is amazingly efective, I thought it was fabic at first. The embossed circles work beautifully too tieing in with the eyelets.
Hope you got all the cleaning done.
