Happy Father's Day

(a day late!)

Hope you all enjoyed the weekends and had a wonderful Father's Day with the men in your families!

I went to my LSS looking for some ink refills (which they were out of) and walked out with this set from Hero Arts!

Something a little different for me since I ♥ coloring so much! Anyway, I used the stamp on the right to make my dad his Father's Day card:
Thanks Dad
- Vine Scrolls, Chinese Thank You, butterfly-Good Fortune (Hero Arts)
- Ink: Versamark Dazzle Frost, Broken China; Peeled Paint & Dusty Concord Distress Ink
- Other: ribbon, buttons

I stamped the Vine Scrolls & butterflies  twice w/Peeled Paint & Dusty Concord distress inks with re-inking in between stamping, embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then applied Broken China distress ink around the edges using a sponge applicator.  

Thanks for all you do DAD!

{& Thanks to you for stopping by today! I'll be back again tomorrow w/the next Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge!}
