Geri challenged us to make a Fathers Day cardWe spent many days at the lake with friends when we were kids. Very good memories. We would go after
Dad was finished putting in a long hot day at the Ford Foundry. The lake must have been very appealing to him after those conditions all day long. Seems there was always the long tall grass growing off the edge of the lake. When I saw this scene from MFP I knew I wanted to recapture that relaxed, carefree time. Look at me, Dad, Look at me, I can swim now, all five of us vying for his attention at the same time. Happy Father’s Day, Dad, I miss you a lot.
Card Stock: Black Blue and White and White Glossy
Ink: StazOn Black, Rainbow Pastel Spectrum Pad
Tools: Cuttlebug , Embossing Folder, Circle Dies
Accessories: String, knotted
Stamps: MFP Beach Greetings, MFP Big Boy Toys sentiment, Small Back Ground Stamp
I stamped the boat, masked it and then brayered around it with only a couple of the colors from the Spectrum pad. Mat it on black. I used the debossed side of the cuttlebugged image and brayered very lightly over that.
The Happy Father’s Day stamp comes horizontal, I layered it word by word which is so easy to do when you have clear stamps from MFP. Thanks for looking.
MFP gives away one of their stamp sets to a randomly drawn winner every week. Join in for the fun.
