Father

Hello all.  It's been another really busy week here but I've had a couple of hours this afternoon to get a little crafty. It was a hard card to make as I lost my wonderful Dad twenty five years ago and I still miss him so much. I have a picture of him next to my desk, so my Dad has been my inspiration for this card, I'm sure he would have loved it!


I took an 8 x 8 cream card and sprayed it with bronze Cosmic Shimmer to make a distressed looking background.  The stamps that I've used are from the Stampman's Nautical Set which are fabulous for any masculine cards. I coloured a sheet of cream card with Starburst Stains and then I stamped over it and cut out the images before mounting them on the base card. I had a piece of paper that I'd previously stained and I used this to create a strip down the left hand side. I added a strip of gold card down the middle just to break it up a bit but this looked too bare and so I added four brass fasteners which I thought worked quite well.  I finished a adding a 'Father' stamp which I cut out using a Spellbinders Die. The stamp is by DENAMIDESIGN.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

I do feel for you Sandra, it's five years since I lost my Dad and miss him so much and it's always that much harder at times like this.

It's a great card and I have a feeling I have those stamps lurking somewhere along with quite a few from the same source.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Thank you for your kind words Brenda. It's a petty that the stamps aren't available any longer as they were great value and so versatile.

Hope you have a lovely weekend too x
