Grungy & Quirky Father's Day Card

Morning Crafters!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I attended the demo at the shop this Saturday and was lucky enough to have a play with the new Threaders Inks and stamps from Crafter's Companion.  Here is my piece, I had no plan just tinkered with the different inks and stamps on a piece of fabric.  When I get a few minutes I will add some embroidery to the piece.


As this weekend is Father's Day I thought I would start the week with a card for dad.  I have used part of one of the backgrounds made at the Crafting the Seth Apter way workshop, you can see the canvas here.  I stamped the birds using Distress Oxide, heat set them and then coloured them with Kuretake pens.  I think the background has absorbed most of the ink, it has changed the colour slightly but still allows the background to be shown.  I die cut the letters from Kraft card and inked the edges. 

Background made using Paperartsy Fresco Finish AcrylicPaints, Paperartsy Stamps and various stencils

I have also made a short video about the Distress Oxides.

All items in bold are available from the shop and we hope to see you there.  For those of you not able to get to Bury St Edmunds I have, where possible, provided a product link.  Remember if you can't see what you are looking for on the website then do not hestiate to contact Mandy and she will let you know if it's in stock or whether she is able to order it.  You can also make contact via the Facebook page
