The Male Room - Father's Day

It is Father's day here in the UK on Sunday so the challenge in The Male Room this week is not surprisingly "Father's Day", sadly mine is no longer with us so I don't have a reason to make a card other than for this challenge.

I have used a retired stamp set Best Dad Ever and had a brainwave! the four ties are all one stamp and I had never got on that well with colouring each one with marker pens. I never seemed to get the crisp finish I wanted, so I cut it up into four separate stamps. Brilliant! I stamped them onto scraps of paper and fussy cut each one out, then attached them to a rectangle of Naturals Ivory card. The background was made by stamping the different stamps with Versamark and clear embossing them onto Real Red and then matted onto Early Espressop (although it looks like black in the photo). In due course I'll change the sentiment to Happy Birthday so that I can use the card.
