A letter for Dad


 This image reminds me of my father as he got older, sitting on a bench in the sun potting up plants.
I began by stamping the flower from Crafter's Companion UK Popcorn the Bear Father's Day set. This was then masked off and the main picture was then stamped and all coloured using Promarkers. The image was then die cut using a Spellbinders Postage Stamp die and the edges distressed with Tim Holtz Distress inks.
 Core'dinations card stock from the Neutrals range was embossed using one of Crafter's Companion Beatrix Potter embossing folders and sanded. The mini envelopes were made from backing paper taken from Crafter's Companion Popcorn the Bear triple CD rom. Finally the words "Best" and "Dad" were stamped onto card and partially inserted into the envelopes.
