Happy Father's Day!


Moxie Fab World Blog is hosting The Cure for Winter Blues Challenge. 
Cath says, Navy is the trend. Cool! She has so many inspirational photos and cards using Navy on her blog. Head over and have a look. You will be inspired.
 I love Navy but haven't used it much recently. So I pulled out all my navy inks (4 in total!) and sponging tool and here is what that came out of it :)

 Father's day card

I basiclly stamped the tree first on a 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch square piece of white cardstock with black ink. Then punch a circle using scrap paper and masked off a bit of tree. Then sponged SU Pacific Point, PTI's Enchanted Evening, SU's Not Quite Navy and finally Black ink. Removed the mask and stamped the dragonfly with black ink.

Supplies
Cardstocks: Stamper's Select White from PTI
Stamp sets: Made with Love and Celebrate Everyday from Hero Arts, Father Knows the Best from PTI.
Inks: SU's Night of Navy, Pacific Point and Basic Black. PTI's Enchanted Evening.
Accessories: Sponging tool and circle punch.

Thanks for visiting :) See you soon.
