Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day

It has been two months exactly since I blogged - wow! I didn't mean to take such a long break, but moving, getting settled in, and unpacking some of my craft supplies was harder than I thought it would be! I still don't have everything in my craft room - a few things got left behind, but they will arrive in a couple of weeks! I'm hoping to get back into a good crafty routine by the end of the month.

I'm sharing a quick card I made for hubs for Father's Day. It's totally inspired by THIS stunning card my friend Jingle made (and don't for one second think I will not be copying that card of hers completely!). I wanted to change it up a bit to make it work for the card I had in mind for him, though.

I colored the gorgeous stamp from Crafter's Companion US with my Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils:

Blues: 69. 70, 75, 73 
Greens: 47, 58 
Grays: 120, 119, 117, 112 
Browns: 109, 110 
Other: 001, 004 

I shaded around the sentiment then finished the card with a bit of jute twine. CAS, just like hubs likes!

Wow, stunning! Love the light touch you've given this gorgeous image... and how wonderful to have quality images of places in Britain after years of waiting! Had no idea these were available.
