Two for the price of one

I recently decided to venture into the world of distress inks and bought some of the new oxide ones, I am still learning but love the results you get just from being messy. 


I loved the backgrounds I created so much I decided to use them for my fathers day cards. I decided to keep them fairly clean and simple and use some die cuts cut in white card. I used memory box,open studio and poppy stamps dies. I cut a stitched rectangle , well 2  to create a frame , I love these as they give an embossed stitched line around the edge. I used this to create the frame for my card and attached over my background and trimmed to size.


I cut the bulrush and stuck into position. The sentiment I created using one of the 'happy' words  from the happy birthday background die . The 'father's day' is a stampman stamp which I stamped in versamark and embossed in white powder on vellum. I used tape behind the sentiment to attach to the card. 


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

4 crafty chicks - father's day

Craft - father's day /male


AAA - embossing

cards und more -father's day

Penny's -anything goes

Time out challenges -flowers and friends make life's garden

My 2nd  followed the same  design but I used a different coloured background,




 a different 'happy' and also added a dazzling dragonfly .





I love how it changes the look of the card totally. One of these cards not sure which yet will be winging its way to Tenerife to my father in law so it needed to be fairly CAS and fit into an envelope.


I would like to enter this card into the foloowing challenges:-

Cardz for guys -fav colour combo
(I love blues and greens and white)


Do-AlKreatives - let's talk our love

Auds sentiments - anything goes


stampavie and more - man or boy
