Fabulous Father's Stamptacular Challenge :-)



I made this card for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge whose theme this week is 'Fabulous Father's'




Heidi at Simon Says Stamp
very kindly sent me this fabulous set of Simon Says Clear Stamps OWLS AND BRANCHES Exclusive Set



Doesn't the 'Dad' look concerned about his little fledgling :-)
I coloured the images with Prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit. The background was made using distress inks and stamped with the branch from this set. The flowers are Prima ones, also from Simon Says Stamp.

The 'Dad' is stamped onto an inked grungeboard die cut shape. I also used a skeleton leaf and a swirl cut out on my cricut.
I used Basic Grey and brown coredinations papers.

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Fab card Lorraine I love those owls the card is perfect for a male or anyone actually so the images are very versatile which is great. I am just not very good with males even though 90% of my family are all men/boys lol.
