Happy Father's Day

Here's my card for my husband on Father's Day.  Inside it simply says Happy Father's Day, and I'm sure I'll write something mushy, too.  Anyway, he is at a career crossroads now, so this is appropriate.

I used  card stock, glossy card stock, Ranger Alcohol Inks and  silver mixative, Archival ink,  some fibers, a Tim Holtz spinner and gears and Tim Holtz Life's Possibilities stamp set.  Obviously, I'm inspired by Tim Holtz here, and learned how to use alcohol inks from his tutorial.  I love these inks, because you never know what you're going to get when you're done. And nothing says Tim like the Umbrella Man.

Now turn your head sideways, because I could not get this photo to rotate.  I think the images and color look better in this shot.  Even my son says this card is really cool. What a complement!

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Father's Day/Masculine Challenge
Frilly and Funkie Challenge For All Our Fathers
Country View Challenge Only Men Allowed
Fasionable Stamping Challenge #74 Like Clockwork


  1. Wonderful card! Love how you made the background! Great colors too!

    Thank you very much for joining us this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


  2. Another great card - I love the bold colours (and why should men only be allowed black, blue and brown anyway?!). I'm sure your father will love it. Thanks for another great entry at Country View Challenges.

  3. Sorry, sorry - husband, not father - and I wish him well at the career crossroads - they're scary places. But as someone said to me when I was at one: change is scary but it's a creative state!
