Happy Father's Day

Supplies: Stamps: Thinking of Father, Sanded Background   Paper: early espresso, ivory  Ink: crumb cake, soft suede, early espresso  Accessories: SU button, GKD ribbon, Crystal Effects, twine, distressing tool, sponge
My Mom was going to sell this set at a rummage sale and I snatched it up.  Love the vintage look to this set.  I started out with a piece of ivory cardstock, and stamped it with the Sanded background stamp in crumb cake.  Next I stamped the focal image in soft suede, and the sentiment in early espresso.  I inked up my twine ribbon with early espresso to make it more rustic looking.  Then I used my distressing tool to distress the edges.  I inked the edges with crumb cake first then added some soft suede for more dimension.  I attached the ribbon with one of the new SU buttons using twine.  I added crystal effects to the lenses of the glasses and clock face, here is a close up to see the shine.

It was fun to distress, once I start I just keep going...  So here's to a Happy Father's Day!
