Timeless Tuesday ...Father's Day card


Well it's time for Timeless Tuesday over at Flourishes and yours truly is sitting in for the entire month of June as a guest designer! Pretty exciting for this ole lady, I tell ya! This week Silke is asking for a Father's Day card ..easy peasy.. especially when you have Flourishes' What a Catch set.  So, here goes! I used gray/grey for my card base and went to work adding some manish type background papers. I love the hat and equipment this image shows, but I wondered where's the can of worms??? I like to thread them on the hook and lure the fish that way. I'm not big on phony flies, but to each his own. I stamped and colored with my faithful water colored pencils and used the blender to get the shadowy effects. Then around my phrase I did the Hokey Pokey and I turned myself around...oops! Once again, I got off track . What I meant to say was I did a bit of piercing (not on myself cause I'm too old for that foolishness) but on the phrase. I made a pretend like ribbon and made it manly by putting some of those nailhead thingys, and guess what??? I'm done here.

Be sure to hop on over and see the other Timeless Tuesday gals....
