Dad

Today I'm sharing the card  that I made for my son to give to his Dad yesterday for fathers day.I started with an 8x8 card base and a stencil/background that I cut out on the scan-n-cut, this was from a site where the pattern was free. I then cut a piece of white card the same size and coloured with distress inks. I stamped the background using stamps by Ryn, before picking a slightly lighted shade than the background and distressing the (I'm going to call it a mask rather than stencil) mask. Next I stamped  twice onto a scrap piece of card one of the fish from Ryn's stamps and coloured both the same before fussy cutting them out. I cut the DAD on my cricut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and the For You and With Love using dies from my huge stash. I then matted and layered using silver mirri card and black card to finish.



I am going to enter this into Ryn's challenge which is to make something using her stamps.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
