This is more like it!

Well after yesterdays horrendous bowling card episode (will update the previous post with a revised version of it!!), I decided I'd better my butt into gear and make my Grandad a Father's Day. I know he's not my Dad, but he's 90 this year and very special to both me and my children and it is a day when I can show him how much he's loved and respected.

This is the card I've made for him

The card base was cut using nesties. The image has been created using distress inks and stamps. I had a little problem with the perspective, and rather bin the whole image, I cheated it good by punching out the good part. For some weird reason I couldn't find my black ribbon, so I coloured white ribbon with Promarkers.

Tools
Sizzix Bigshot
Spellbinder Nestabilities - Labels 8 & Large Circles
Fiskars Circle Punch
Tim Holtz Blending Tool
Water Barrel Brush

Materials

DP - The Hampstead Collection by Papermania
Promarkers - black
