Father's Day

I tried a couple different things with this card. I began with the Best Dad Ever stamp set, coloring the ties with Stampin' Write markers, beginning with Night of Navy, Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler. Once they were stamped on the Very Vanilla card stock, I layered it on Wild Wasabi card stock and added the buttons (Night of Navy, More Mustard and Cherry Cobbler). I then staggered squares of cardstock in the coordinating colors below that thinking they looked like ties on display. The background paper is Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper sponged wiht Marina Mist ink. The paper looks white, but the designs come through when you add ink, whether smooching or sponging or braying. This paper will not be available after June 30 unless there is enough to put on the clearance rack on-line.Products Used:
