Father's Day

Today I am sharing with you the card I made for Father's Day for both of the very special men whom Gordon and I are proud to call Dad.
I decided that I wanted to use a nature style images for this year as my Father in Law works hard in his garden and it always looks amazing and my own Mum and Dad are currently having their garden landscaped and I just know their garden will soon mean a lot to them too.

I have always loved the Lovely as a Tree stamp set (in fact it is one of those sets that I bought before I was even a demonstrator) and I tend to use it a lot for male themed cards. I do have to admit that I tended to only use the row of trees image or the Christmas Tree one but this past few months I have begun to use the oak tree and leaves images too. I think I avoided those images in the past because I wasn't confident about my colouring abilities, however once I discovered the blender pen and ink pad technique I realised that even I can create a nice colouring effect with a bit of practice.

Well I hope they both enjoy their cards, I am now off to work on some ideas for my July classes
