Masterpiece of a Father
He's a masterpiece. So, with that thought, I decided to use this Close To Your Heart stamp set that I bought off E-bay a couple of summers ago, to create a Father's Day card for him. I stamped and masked the images with Marvy Dye black ink onto Sterling Matte Coated paper and colored with Copic markers. Boy did I struggle with the coloring, as I haven't used this paper in a couple of months. The ink pilled, and I probably wore out the colorless blender picking up the color. Note to self: Practice more with this paper.
Anyway, I decided to actually use a picture of my dad to put on the easel...as he is the masterpiece. I got the idea from the WT170 challenge, which is to somehow incorporate a photograph into your work.
The scalloped edge was cut out by me as I don't have Nestabilities (yet), nor do I have the patience for scalloped scissors. I simply traced a part of a My Sentiments Exactly package as a pattern. Worked!
Now, on to the gift. I haven't a clue. My Dad is very hard to buy for. This card was the easy part.
