AVJ #6 All About Him

I'm sure I don't know where the time is going, It seemed like a day or so ago I was checking the Vintage Journey theme, and low and behold i've just gone back to double check when it closes and i've only got a day left to join in!!
Who is stealing my days!! Come on, own up!
So I grabbed a load of Timmy stash and quickly knocked up this little beauty.

I took the opportunity to get a fathers day card made as i'm sure that will creep up on me if i'm not careful.


I used Tims papers, alpha stamps and dies, I stamped the Dad in versamark and used distress embossing powder, but think I rubbed too hard as alot of the powder came off, so I inked over it, the versamark gave it a sort of grunged up watermark look, so to make it pop I cut the letters out.
1 down, 1 to go..
Right I can't stop as it's my 1st Hobbycraft Induction day tomorrow and I need to get myself ready and get in an early night!!

Thanks in advance for your visit xo
Stay Inky

I love it Nicky! The DAD looks like it's corkboard from where I am sitting lol. It's a perfect male card!

Like Jenny, above, I think the DAD looks like corkboard - a happy accident that turned out billiantly. I love your card. Thank you for joining in our 'All About Him' challenge at A Vintage Journey. Anne x
