InStyle Stamps Blog Hop: Father's Day

Hi All,

Thanks for joining me today! We are hopping along with InStyle Stamps, and this month's theme is Father's Day!  If you have come here from Kerry's blog, you are right on track!  If not, please head back to the ISS blog for the full blog hop order.  You can also win some delicious prizes, so head over there to find out how! It's always commenting and voting!

Here is my card:

My card base is Blue Bayou , and I added a piece of Taste of Textiles specialty DSP, which was punched with an SU edge punch.  I added some self-adhesive nail heads onto that border.  Next, I used my Top Note die from SU, and cut one out of Basic Black CS, and one out of Whisper White CS, and I trimmed the white one.  I also embossed the white piece with the houndstooth Cuttlebug folder, but it ended up being mostly covered.

For the main image, I printed Father and Kid onto PTI White CS and coloured it with Copics.  I matted that with a piece of Basic Black, and stuck that layer to the Top Note layer.

Your next stop is Lana - head on over to see her amazing work!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
