My first card is for my husband. He loves Hawaii so I went with a fun tropical color theme and stamp set Happy Days from Verve. I was going to enter it into their June challenge but it didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped. But oh well. It still works for the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge, and SCS direct to paper technique and Play Date Cafe's Challenge this week. I stamped everything in versamark, then embossed it with white EP and applied the ink directly to the paper over it wiping it off the embossed part with a paper towel. I hand cut everything out and layered it up.
The second card for my father I like much better!!! I did some insane masking using 3 different stamps to create this fishing scene which I then colored with copics. I used Gina K's stamp TV Free For All Friday challenge which was a sketch AND to use TREES. So to continue that theme I embossed the two background panels with Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder.
I hope you all have a wonderful day with the dad's in your life!
