Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all those Dads and Father figures! I am blessed to have many wonderful men in my life! : )


This card is really out of my norm! I had this inspiration to ink and emboss the ship and use my Copics to airbrush the water and sunset. I used a piece of paper and a circle punch. I punched the hole and used the negative space to create the setting sun. Then I took the positive circle and placed that on top of the sun and continued airbrushing around it. (Let me know if you would like to see a tutorial on this! I always feel that whatever I would put here on my blog, has been done on someone else's! ) After the sky and water were airbrushed, I cut the image with my Spellbinder's Nestibilities. I scored my Kraft card stock diagonally for some interest. I used my JustRite stamps (Times New Roman), to create the sentiment......because my son lost my Father's Day Stamp! Ahem.....not mentioning any names!

Many moons ago I bought lots of charms off the Internet......but have no idea what site.....but I do know they were inexpensive!
Just an FYI, tomorrow I will be starting my week as guest blogger over at the JustRite blog!
Have a wonderful Father's Day!!!
