Cheers Dad!


I made my dad a quick Father's Day card yesterday (yes, I know yesterday was Father's Day, and my card will be late. I'm a slacker like that!), using the Camden Town Male 1 stamp set from Crafter's Companion (also available in the UK).  After inking it up with my IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black  I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers:

Tub: BGR1, BGR2, BGR3
Beer Bottles: TN3, N4, TN5
labels: IG4, IG2, IG1
Tag: EB2, blender
Dotted Outline: OR2, OR3, TB5, TB2, IG1

I tried to make my tub look as much like galvanized steel as I could, so I purposely over-blended to give it a mottled look.  I hand wrote 'Dad' on the little tag, popped a large beer bottle up on foam pieces, and added a bit of jute twin and green bling to finish it off.  My patterned paper is Echo Park's All About Boy, from i {heart} papers.

Inside the card I stamped 'Cheers' and 'Dad' using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Onyx Black.

I totally think this card works for the current Spectrum Noir challenge, and the Crafter's Companion challenge as well...they're both Summer-themed this month!  You should come play along with one or both, for your chance to win!
