Happy Father's Day ...

Good morning and Happy Sunday! It's the first Sunday of the month and time for a new Challenge over at the Great Impressions Blog.

This month's Challenge is "Anything Goes".

Father's Day is fast approaching so I decided to create a Father's Day card for my Father-in-Law featuring the Old Pickup Truck (G333) and Father's Day Sentiment (C380) for Great Impressions Stamps.

I stamped the Old Pickup Truck on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Brown Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image and background with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads, Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. Once the image was dry I used my MFT Pcd Rect STAX to cut out the image and 2-pieces of CCS Flavours Gourmet Moroccan Cocao, and put them on the side. Next I pulled out some MME design paper, cut a rectangular piece and layered it onto some Paperty Ink Rustic White cardstock (card base), stamped the Happy Father's Day Sentiment which I cut apart to fit on 1-line along the bottom, added a Border Sticker on the other half of the card, and then layered my Moroccan Cocao pieces with the images popped up with 3D Foam Tape.

I really like the rustic feel of this card, and know that my Father-in-law will love it.
