A Day Off!

I finally had a day off work and actually have time to update my blog (and clean house & do laundry LOL!).  The Simon Says Challenge this week worked out well for me.  Make a masculine/Father's Day card,  and I needed to make a card for my nephew's birthday this week.  I had a couple of hours to sit down Sunday night and make the card and this is what I came up with.

Since my nephew is saving his money to buy a motorbike I thought this image would be perfect.  The stamp is from Hot of the Press and I stamped it with ranger archival ink.  I shaded much of the image with watercolour pencils (ivory black, blue grey, gunmetal & french grey.  I edged the paper with versa magic wheat chalk ink and then distressed it and all the patterned papers with Tim Holtz walnut stain ink. The patterned papers are from Prima engraver pack & Simple Stories Awesome pack.  I coloured some amber rhinestones with prisma marker (cocoa bean) to add a little more dimension.  The greeting is from the Flourishes tag line stamp set and stamped with ranger archival ink.  

Move update...we finally got the new store open last Friday.  We are still in the process of bringing over some stock from the old store and will have both stores open for a couple more weeks.  Once the old store is closed I may actually have a little more time for crafting and updating my blog.  I am going to try and get a few Father's Day cards made this week.  I will post them ASAP.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week everyone!
