I'm back from my travels - for now. Paris was wonderful, of course! I'm finally getting back into the art room and back to my creative work. One look at the calendar and I realized the Father's Day projects that had to be mailed had to be the first priority. While it seems so far away the mailing deadline is practically here. Now first up is my dad. Let me just say, he is the hardest person I make cards for. He loves his work and isn't really into the typical guy stuff but he certainly isn't into anything remotely girly. Tough I tell ya.
I got a little nudge from a few challenges and here's what I came up with. This is not my usual style, but I'm happy with it and I think it fits the bill.
The border around the image is embossed with distressed embossing powder and the blue around that is painted with distressed paint. The staples are from the fastenater (is that how you spell it??). They were brown, but have been sanded to go along with the whole distressed look. The image is an old PSX one and the sentiment is from a set that was given to me.
Thanks for looking.
