Building with dad

   The theme for the new challenge starting today at Creative Corner is 'Just for Dad'.
   I while ago I printed some brickwork paper but the printer was low on inks and so it printed the bricks with a very pink hue. Rather than throw the paper away I dusted it with pumice stone distress ink and used it as the background for this card, matting and layering it onto black and then white card.
   The digi image I used is from Make It Crafty and is called building blocks with dad. I coloured it using Promarkers, dusted the edges using distress inks and matted it onto black card.
   The sentiment was cut from core'dinations cardstock using Tattered Lace dies.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Clear It Out - anything goes
   The Pink Elephant - masculine birthday
   Sweet Stampin - father's day or a special man
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Pattie's Creations Design - father's day or graduation
   Digi Galore - father's day
   Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
   Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
   Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - make it masculine
   Inky Impressions - make it for a man
