Don't forget Dad! - Cool Stampin' Up! technique card for Father's Day

Hi all

Father's Day is only 10 days away - I know!

For me June is always super fun with lots of cards to make including my Son and Dad in close succession plus Father's day of course.

I have a fun technique to share today using the Woodland Textured embossing folder and the fabulous Guy Greetings stamp set which is just perfect for lots of occasions.

You'll need your Big Shot for this one.

Open your embossing on the opposite side to the Sizzix mark as shown.

I used a Whisper White card base. 
Sponge the lower half with Pear Pizzazz for grass and the top with Pool Party for sky.

Ink your car stamp using Memento and stamp twice. Have your Big Shot close by so you can place your card in the folder and run it through the machine before the image has a chance to start drying.

Go over the car with a Basic Gray marker to add some more definition to the lines and also add some to the lines on the trees.
Using your ink pads as a palette (with the ink pad closed squeeze the case and you have some ink in the lid when you open it up) Give each car a colour wash with an aqua painter. I thought Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy looked very smart.

Do ask if you have any questions regarding this technique or let me know what you think, I love hearing from you :)

I hope you give this fun technique a try.
