Fathers Day Part One

I had to make a Father's Day card today as need to post it tomorrow to my Step-Dad in Spain. Stamptacular Sunday had the perfect challenge for me which was 'Fabulous Fathers'. The rules for this challenge are you can only enter your card for this challenge and you must stamp something.

Doodlebug papers, printed sentiment

OK so it doesn't look like I've done any stamping but I promise you I have! I stuck Doodlebug paper to the front of the card and then created the sentiment with the PC on a plain piece of card. I scored a line at the top and added some dotty paper over this part before sticking down at the top only.

Because underneath.............................

Doodlebug papers, Creative Expressions Stamp, Copics

Sentiment was done on the PC again and the stamp is from Creative Expressions I have no idea what possessed me to buy this and it's the first time I've used it. I used Copics to shade her in, trying to make her look over tanned and vibrant, a bit like 'Magda' out of 'Something About Mary'. My Step-Dad is a loud and over tanned cockney and getting on in years (being polite!) so I thought this would be just perfect for him.

I've been inside all day as Hay fever has got the better of me as there's nothing I can take for it at the moment. I have been admiring the gorgeous sunshine through the window!
