Sneak Peak at Stamp It for Dad


The Crafter's Companion Design Team has a lot going on this week.  In preparation for our blog hop we are being more creative than usual. :o)  We love giving away products from Crafter's Companion because we know how much fun they are to create with!!

Today, I'm sharing a finished card from all the coloring I've been doing. My husband is a handy man. He's out in the garage right now playing with his tools and working on something, while I'm in my stampin' headquarters working on this card.  I thought this image was perfect for him!

I started with coloring this new Stamp It image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I also added some ink to the edge of the script image. I used a  tooth pick and white acrylic paint to add little highlights on the tools.


Next, I used a die cut to cut out the tools image. I left the die on and used a blending tool to add some tea dye Distress Ink to the inside edge. 


All I had to do next was adhere the layers and it's ready for a special note inside.

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

Great Father's Day card, Trena. My hubby and I are the same way - he's out in the garage most days on his lathe making wood crafts to sell and I'm in my craft room making cards. LOL See you next week in Savanna!!
