Father's Day and Popsicle Sticks

Keep checking in...I'm watching my counter.......blog candy is being gathered!!!

I made these cards for Father's Day. It is based on the wonderful card made by Molly B that Nichole Heady gave an honorable mention to on her blog from the May Guest Star Stamper contest (scroll down to the last one...the rest are great to check out along the way too!).

I love the simplicity. The card on the left has "spatters" of brown on the main image (made with some ink and water on the top of the ink pad and a toothbrush!). The card on the right is more simple, but see that popsicle stick --- that was fun to make. I sprayed it with varnish and then stamped the sentiment - the vanish was used to keep the ink from spreading, then I cut the stick to be the right length! I really like the look -- feels masculine!!


Supplies: paper-River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Whispter White (SU!), Ink-River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Versamark (SU!); Stamps-Pond Life (Papertrey Ink); Other - Popsicle Stick, varnish, toothbrush.
Thanks for stopping in.
