Father's Day Card

Hi Crafters,
I started making some Father's Day cards for my stall last month but they sold and I have been asked for some more so here is one that I made yesterday..
Image - Papermania Stamp Set - Nostalgia 'Classic Cars'
Distress Inks
Verve Sentiment Stamp
SB Fancy Tags Die
Star Brads
Embossalicious Embossing Folder - 'Gun Metal'
I had some more inky fun yesterday with this card using the 'letterpress' technique. Firstly I inked up the embossing folder with Black soot DI before I embossed the card to get the ink on to the relief part of the pattern and then used Pumice Stone DI to highlight the raised parts of the pattern. The image was stamped and heat embossed so I could ink around it with Barn Door and Aged Mahogany DI and then spritz with water without affecting the stamped image. A little more Pumice Stone on the image and around the sentiment and that was it, just a case of putting it all together.
