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:-

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.
