Celebrating Father's Day with CrafTangles

A big hello from me!  It's Shabneez here, with my first blog post with a mini tutorial for the CrafTangles Design Team.  I'm from the UK and we are due to celebrate Father's Day this Sunday.  I was thrilled  to receive some Father's Day items with my DT pack and I have created a couple of cards using a stamp set with the most adorable image.

For my first card, I used Tim Holtz green distress ink to stamp on the side then with the versamark pad I stamped the image and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then used the blue distress inks over it.  The effect made me think of a negative from a photo.

To add a bit more colour, I used more green with my water brush around the silhouette.  Finally, I used the stencil with my water brush to add interest,


And here's the finished version, I've added a sentiment from the same stamp set as the image together with the gorgeous new CrafTangles sequins and some ribbon to embellish.


For my second card, I decided to go for a vintage look so used the distress inks to stamp the image on a piece of card which I tore the edges and added a darker colour around to enhance the vintage look.

This time for the sentiment, I used the CrafTangles sentiment set which I can see being my go to sentiment set as it covers so many different occasions. I kept with the natural look for this card and added a doily, bakers twine and a wooden button to finish it off.

I love how you can get two totally different looks using the same image.  Hope this has inspired you to get your inks and stamps out to have a play!

See you again soon!
