It was my dad's birthday recently - hope you had a lovely day, Dad!
I used the challenge in the Crafty Secrets member company forum at SplitcoastStampers as a kickstart to make him a card - we were challenged to do some watercolouring this week.
I chose to use Distress inks as watercolours on my image panel. The deep brown background layer is Cryogen White cardstock that has been spritzed with multiple layers of walnut ink - it gives a lovely mottled, almost leathery look.
I'm much happier with the actual card than with the photo of it, I just couldn't get the richness and delicacy of colour to show well no matter what I tried!
