Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #173

Hello, all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge.


This week's hostess is Heather and the challenge theme is "Father's Day". She challenged us to create a project based on Father's Day theme.


I thought that this image from From the Desk Of set would be perfect for a masculine card as well. It's stamped and colored on rustic white cardstock with Copic markers. Have you seen the Copic Collection at Flourishes? They have the markers in sets that would be perfect for beginners and they can also be a wonderful reference if you need to find color combos for certain things. Go have a look! =)


The image is cut and embossed using a Large Labels die then matted with dark chocolate cardstock. A fun border die on the kraft card base and die cut sentiment finishes the card.

That's all I have. Don't forget to visit all the Timeless Tuseday designers and see what they created for this challenge.
You can find all the challenge details at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #173. Hope you can join us this week! =)



Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Alice, you rock! I LOVE how you colored the image and how you turned this rather feminine image into a masculine card. Is there anything you can't do.
