Father's Day Card 2018

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Happy Father's Day to those who are celebrating it today.  In honor of the day, I made this card for my Dad.

Making masculine theme cards is always a challenge for me.  Whenever I need to make one, I almost always find myself turning to Tim Holtz and his wonderful line of products.  Just about the only thing not from Tim's line is the stamped sentiment.  The design of this card was taken from an example on the Dog Talk stamp and die set--I did add my own touch to it.  An embossing folder of ink splatters included in the set adds texture to the background.  The papers are from Tim's Wallflower collection and Distress cardstock.  The dog, bone and hearts were colored with Copics and highlighted a bit with Glossy Accents.  I used Tim's Wildflower dies to add a bit more texture and colored them with Distress Markers.  I also added some foam dots under the dog for added dimension.

Well, that's it for me today.  We are entering a hot, humid phase today with temperatures reaching the 100 degree mark tomorrow.  Ugh!  Cannot wait until Fall! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking time to leave a comment.  I appreciate hearing from you.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
