Advice for Dad

Hello and welcome!  Linda here, back with my Sunday Artistic Outpost post.  This week I'm focusing on a male-oriented theme and have made a card for Dad...could be for Father's Day, a birthday or any other "Dad" occasion.

I started with a piece of designer paper from Pion Designs For Father collection and stenciled Tim's Rays stencil onto it with Vintage Photo.  Then I created the pocket watch frame using the pocket watch die along with one of the sized circles M&S dies.  I treated the chipboard frame first with Wendy Vecchi's Metallic Gold embossing paste and when dry, a coat of her Crackled texture paste.  Once that was dry, I brushed Vintage Photo distress ink over it and then double embossed it with UTEE.

I layered an old book page under the pocket watch frame and stamped and fussy cut the auto image from Artistic Outpost's Diesel Punk set.  The child image and the sentiment are also from that set.   I created a cabochon by printing Dad out on my computer, cutting it out and distressing it with Vintage Photo, then layered a dome seal over it and attached it to a bronze filigree cabochon setting from my shop.

The card was finished off with a bit of Tim Holtz colored twine, a Prima leaf filigree from one of the Finnabiar Vintage Mechanicals collections as well as a small bronze key.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Love this, Linda - golden glowing sepias, and the crackly watch frame makes the perfect setting for the fabulous car on the book page - brilliant!
