Here in Australia, Father’s Day is the first Sunday in September.
Unfortunately, my dad is long gone, and so is my father-in-law. But I have a son who has three children. My grandson Curtis no longer makes cards, because at almost 14 he feels he’s too old to be doing things like this. It’s not a new thing, it’s now been going on for at least two years.
The girls (Nikita – 12, and Crystal – 11) love making cards, and will make one for their dad, and I didn’t want Curtis to miss out.
This was a very easy card to make, once I got the sponging right! To be honest, this is my first attempt at using sponging as a background like this. I usually only use sponging for distressing, and for small areas, so this was definitely a challenge!
I think I wasted about six sheets of card before I managed this one.
Not sure if you can see it, but I was aiming for get something that looked like the sun setting in the background, and the ocean in the foreground!
I did the sponging (with distress inks) on glossy cardstock, otherwise you get a matt effect.
The main image stamp is from Kaszazz, and is simply called “Fishing”.
Once everything was sponged and stamped, I just added it to a cardbase. Very easy!
