Fathers Day..

Morning all..what another lovely sunny day we have here...hope you all have the same. Well I have finished my fathers day card for dear old dad lol..and actually remembered to take a piccie before I send it off.

I ran some brown card through the Tim Holtz texture fade patchwork. I used some gesso on my finger just randomly all over it and then swiped it with my black archival. I used more brown card and the mini texture fades for umberella man and the cogs..then cut them out..and did the same with the gesso. I then layered up scraps of different papers and laid them on the card. Cut 'dad' from the word play die in black and stuck it all on.Lastly I added a slight shadow around most of the pieces to give it some depth.. This was then mounted onto a lighter brown card to tie in with the paper scraps...

I am going to enter this into the Simon Says Fathers day/masculine challenge..
Also the Frilly and Funky challenge here
