Father's Day with another sneak peek!

 

I know it was Father's Day yesterday, but I couldn't share this until my Dad had opened it. He's been away for the weekend and so I wanted him to see it first.
 
I'm really pleased with it as it uses new and old products.  Can you spot what's new? 
I've also got braver with my blender pens and inkpads as I don't consider myself to be a good colourer let alone an artist adding light and shade and the like.  You might think I shouldn't get any braver, well that's fine, but I enjoyed making this for Dad and I'm pleased with the result. 
The image is a Stampin' Up! new catalogue sneak peek and to give you a clue you could get it free! Now work that one out!
 
The designer series paper is also new and you can just about see the embossing folder peeking also.  I've used my colour spritzer (I'm so sad it's being retired) for the speckled back drop along with a spritzing bottle filled with reinker and rubbing alcohol or water if you have more time for it to dry.
 
Ribbon scraps need not go in the bin when you add them to a card like this and bundled with linen thread and a button they look very effective and more manly than a bow. 
Back soon. Zx
