Welcome to the Stampin' Sisterhood's Father's Day blog hop! I'm glad you are able to join us because the design team has some pretty cool Father's Day cards to show you.
Please note that Blogger has been causing problems for some of our designers all week long so you may come across a few blogs that do not appear updated with today's blog hop post. If that happens, please refer to the hop order at the end of my post or on The Stampin' Sisterhood Blog to continue. However, make sure you plan to check back on the other blogs because you'll need to leave a comment on each blog in order to win our BIG PRIZE!
Also, before I move onto my card, I would like to remind you that the Stampin' Sisterhood has a very active blog with daily postings by the design team members, Sisterhood Sunday challenges that we'd love to have you participate in, as well as a monthly blog hop! Also, watch out for something NEW coming your way next month!
For my card, I used the Grandpa with fishing pole image. I stamped him with Versafine Onyx Black ink and water colored with various inks (see my supply list at the end of my post). After I water colored his shirt, I rubbed a little Tea Dye Distress Ink into parts of his shirt to grunge it up a bit. I used a deckled rectangle Nestability to die cut the image and then I distressed the edges with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. For the designer paper behind the image, I distressed the edges of the paper with the same inks. I then crumpled and pressed open the paper for more of a distressed look. My hubby generously donated one of his fishing flies that I added to the hemp cord (yes, this card will be very carefully handed to my father!)
Now, here's some important blog hop information:
If you complete the entire blog hop route, leaving a comment at every blog, as well as the Stampin' Sisterhood blog where you let us know that you have hopped the entire route, you will be eligible to win a Rubbernecker stamp set of your choice!!!
