Hi, just popping in to share the card I made for my lovely Dad for Fathers Day.
I wrapped some cardstock in silver foil tape and ran it through my Tim Holtz embossing folder, then painted it with black gesso and when it was almost dry I wipe it back to reveal the foil tape.
The lighthouse image is a Stamp It stamp that I have had for ages and this I stamped with Brushed Courdoroy Distress Ink onto a tag which was diecut using Memory Box Distressed Tag Die and stamped with the matching stamp using Brushed Courdoroy ink. The edges were then inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and when it was dry it was painted with a coat of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy. I also cut a decorative strip using Testatina Border Die by Memory Box.
For the tie on the tag I used a strip of Green Tara Burlap Ribbon and pulled it apart as a ribbon and attached a ships wheel charm for decoration.
For me the countdown is now on as it will be school holidays in a few days and I am looking forward to spending some time catching up with family, friends and some crafting.
Hope you are having a great week, happy crafting.
