Father's Day: Blues, Specs and Tie

One more sleep and it is Father's Day! I enjoyed creating my own background on this creation! Repeating a smaller image all over can achieve an interesting image. Moreover, with the versamark & distress inks technique can create a gradient of colours while resisting the image. The inlaid panel with the tie was an afterthought actually. I felt like I need to add some fun and we all know it is harder to embellish masculine cards than any other themed cards LOL. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of vellum to diffuse the intensity of the background.


Stitched rectangle dies is a must for any card maker!

I used a "charcoal" embossing powder by Recollections. I like how it is blacks and grays with a hint of sparkle.

Happy Dad's Day!--almost LOL
