Father's Day Card

Hello everyone!!

I've made a Father's Day card for this week's project.  I hope you enjoy it.  I am using one of the new Stamp-It Australia "Guys in Our Life" stamps.

I used a pale gray, a gray, and a black ink for the images.  I stippled Adirondack ink over the top of the images.  The Adirondacks I used were Stone Washed Denim, Denim, Mushroom, and Butterscotch.  I used black ink to add the words "On" and "remember" to the images.

I cut out the images making sure to not cut off any of the watch or the compass.  I then edged the piece with the denim ink.  I rummaged through my "blue scraps" and found a great blue Maruyama with gold sparkles.  I attached a piece to a black card with side fold.  The card was made from a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock.

With the gold sparkles in the decorative paper, I decided to use a gold gel pen to add some color and highlights to the watch and compass.

I attached the images to the Maruyama with double-sided adhesive foam.  The last thing I did was to add 3-D Crystal Lacquer to the watch.  It made it look like it had a crystal on it.  I thought it made the watch "pop"!
