Fathers Day Blog Hop

The Viva Las VegaStamps! design team are celebrating our  males with a blog hop today, in the run up to fathers Day. There is also a giveaway ... more info at the end of this post.

Welcome, you will have arrived from Fiona's blog

Here is the card I made. I know, I am being a little sentimental today  :

For this card I used Dylusions sprays in the background. Then added some white acrylic across the bottom and around the edges. I used Doodle Frame with tangerine colored ink around the inside edge. I then coloured Sunflowers with tangerine and olive coloured inks and stamped into the card. While the ink was still wet I embossed it with clear powder and coloured in the petals of the flowers with the tangerine ink to further enhance them.My focal images are the adorable Walking Family. They are stamped onto white card stock with memento ink and coloured with copics and fussy cut. Finally I die cut the word 'Dad' and typed 'We love you' on my typewriter. And the card front was put onto a white card base.

To all the deserving men out there, the Dad's, Grandpa's etc ... Happy Fathers Day x
