Happy Father's Day

Yes I know its not Father's Day yet but thought I would colour a few cards so my grandkids can pick out which one they want for their dad when it gets closer (we celebrate Fathers Day in September here in Australia). This is one of the few Mo's Digital Pencil rubber stamps I own. Mostly own digital images of hers but have started buying the rubber which then gives me a bit more choice with my stamping. Actually I painted the little ballerina last week and she is also a Mo's clear rubber stamp (can't think of the name they use for clear stamps so that will do). 

 I coloured in with Distress inks and had a little bit of overflow with the orange t-shirt (lesson one - clear emboss when stamping with black ink just to ensure there is no overspill) I have always clear embossed for watercoloring but have become rather lazy/eager to get things done and have been bypassing this step.
Its not too bad but does look better with clear embossing so will get back into the habit. Also can't work out why I did the ground in grey, maybe I was thinking shadow and got carried away. Should have been grass - looks like dad is dragging her along the road (lol).

Ahh come on she's smiling, it can't be too bad!!!! Finished it off with a free stamp sentiment I got from Stamplorations the last time I bought something. Its a beauty hey!

Cut the panel smaller than the card base. Added a sheet of patterned paper to the base of the card then attached my coloured panel. All done.

Okay thanks for visiting and hopefully you will be back soon.
