Father's Day

To continue with the Masculine theme over on Hero Arts and to add to my OWH box, here is another manly card, and quite retro.

Paper: PTI Cardstock
Ink: Black Soot DI; Chipped Sapphire DI
Stamps: Hero Arts; Stampers' Anonymous (splatter stamp)
Other: Tim Holtz embossing folder; clear embossing powder

I embossed the front of my notecard with one of the Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folders, as I was going for a bit of a retro look.

The centre panel, in the same cardstock, is adhered with pop dots for dimension.  On this panel I first stamped the splatter stamp in the one corner.  Then I overstamped the same corner using some of the circle elements from my Hero Arts clear stamp set (CL124).  The sentiment is stamped in Chipped Sapphire and clear embossed.

I am getting quite a lot of mileage from this circle elements stamp set from Hero Arts, after sitting in my cupboard for probably 2 years unused!  Strange how we change!

It's different, I kinda like it.  What do you think?

This looks great Brenda. Definetly has a retro vibe and I know what you mean about some of the stamps we buy and then use years later! They look really cool now!
