Happy Father's Day

Hello, friends!  Happy Father's Day to all those celebrating today.

I want to share a card I made for my husband using the new "Wave" stamp set from The Ton.  I fell in love with this layering stamp as soon as I saw the amazing cards made by the Design Team and I ordered it right away.  I am so glad I did!  I also order the "Penned Sentiments" set and love the font.  Love!

Supplies:
Stamps: The Ton (Wave, Penned Sentiments)
Inks: MFT (Black Licorice); Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China); Hero Arts (Navy die ink)
Other: Water color paper

I think my husband will appreciate this, particularly because he is our main vacation planner and we have always loved going places with beaches.  When the kids were little, we always spent a week at the shore and hours on the beach -- in the water, jumping waves, swimming, playing in the sand, flying kites, going for walks.  For our twentieth anniversary (almost two years ago), we all went to Hawaii and spent hours on different beaches all over the island of O'ahu, swimming, snorkeling, even taking surfing lessons.  This summer we are returning to the shore for another week's vacation -- even though our kids are all teens and pre-teens, we still love spending time near the ocean.  That's why I knew this stamp set would be perfect for my husband's Father's Day card.

I'm linking my card up to a few challenges.

(1) Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #246: Anything Goes



(2) Muse Challenge #220 - Here is Tracey McNeely's Muse card and I was inspired to follow the same theme, a Happy Fathers Day card.



(3) Inkspirational Challenge #137: Photo Inkspiration.  I saw this big splash of blue flowers on that wall and thought of the big splash of an ocean wave!  I know my blues are a different shade, but the splash is real!


(4) CAS Watercolor Card Challenge: Watercolor June Challenge.  I used watercolor cardstock and spritzed my stamped image with water before stamping...hoping this counts?


(5) Happy Little Stampers June Watercolor Challenge - Anything Goes. (Thanks for the tip, Kylie!)



Thanks again for stopping by...enjoy the day!

    I'm guessing you go to the Jersey shore...we do have some lovely beaches, although nothing compares to Hawaii :) Have fun on your summer vacation!
