Fathers Day or One for the Boys!



Hi Folks

Its time for a new Challenge at Try It On Tuesday and this time it's Fathers Day or One for the Boys.
For my card I have used an image from a Woodware Nautical set.  I started off with the background and wanted it to look like a ships journal, the text stamps I used were from Inkylicious, stamped in Weathered Wood Di and then distressed with Antique Linen.  I used a mask for the compass. The embossed TH Journal sheet was also inked with the Antique Linen.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and chalks for the sky. The frame is a Nesti Label 18, the letters are TH Vintage Market die, both coloured with Faded Jeans and then coated with Glossy Accents.
We would love you to join us at TioT, and now the challenge is open for 2 weeks instead of 1. giving you more time to enter.
The rest of the team have some wonderful creations to show you, so please pop over and have a look.

I am also entering this card in:
  Creative Stamp Friends - Fathers Day
  Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - One for the Boys
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Hotshot Crafts - Die cuts
  Paper Play - Destruction

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking.
