Dad Fixes Everything!

Of course Dad fixes everything, well at least in my house he does. That would be my girls dad not my day, my dad lives in North Carolina which I miss him dearly. But I will be sending him one of these cards for Father's Day! He loves getting my cards in the mail, always hoping for one even if there is no holiday!! Gotta love him.

Ok, so on to the card. Now I am not going to lie, I did not come up with the idea for the background. I give total credit to Lucy Abrams for Hero Arts. I will link her video to show you exactly how she and I made it. Now you can make the background with just about any stencil you have laying around. Have fun with it!! I did.

For the colors I used I was still inspired by the previous challenge I just entered. I am going to submit this card to the challenge as well.  


Here is a closer look at the gloss how it shines. I love how it turned out.

In the picture I cut off the ink pad I used, my apologies. But I do have a link at the end of this post of the ink pad I used. 

Here is the video she made with the technique. Please stop by the Hero Arts YouTube page and give her some props!

Really cool background! And I love your pops of yellow to contrast with the grey! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
