Thanks Dad card

I have slowly been trying my hand at coloring stamped images. Slowly but surely I think I am catching on. I love the watercolor pencils and am still trying various techniques to get the best result. (if you have any ideas to share, i am all ears!!) I decided to do another Father's Day card and the image I used is from Precious Memories. The printable stamps seem to be all the rage lately, so I found myself Googling different images. This one I actually found as a coloring page! You can find soooo many awesome images just by searching through Google. I absolutely love it! I have printed quite a few out lately and plan on working on another image tonight after I pick up a new blending pen today at M's.

I wanted to do a thanks card for Father's Day so we could really express our appreciation for all that is done. For this card I used Bazill and The Paper Studio cardstock and the striped paper is by Basic Grey. I absolutely love this sheet of Basic Grey paper! So far I haven't wasted one single scrap of it and have been able to make a total of three projects out of it so far. I still have some left and can't wait to use the rest of it! Such a cool sheet of paper! The flowers are by Prima, the center is a skittle I colored with a navy blue Sharpie, the stamp is by Studio G, and I used black dimensional paint for the appearance of tiny brads. I used StampCraft ink to distress the image and Stazon for the stamped sentiment.

Hopefully tonight I will head home after work and get another card or layout done! I am on a roll and not slowing down!!

Happy Scrapping!
