After my lament about the rain in my last post, the sun has finally decided to make an appearance. It's beautiful here today. The question of the day is...Will it last? I hope so.
I haven't done any challenges for a while so decided to use 2 for my inspiration for my Dad's Father's Day card.
My Dad was in the Canadian Navy during World War II, so what would be more appropriate than using the Open Sea stamp set.

Notice the anchor. I used the faux metal technique. This technique is simply but you need to be quick.
Use a piece of Whisper White card stock.
Cover with Versamark
Sprinkle with Pewter Emboss Powder and melt the powder with heat gun - Repeat 3 more times
Quickly stamp your image. Let cool.
I then fussy cut the anchor before attaching to my card with Whisper White Baker's Twine.
Try this technique...It's fun.
The Father's Day sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set fits very nicely into the curved Itty Bitty Banners Framelit.

Over next several weeks, watch for an announcement on my blog of a new program that I am starting. It will be of interest to those who have little time to craft or want to get started crafting. If you live in small town Canada and don't have access to a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, this will be for you.
Until next time....
