Happy Father's Day Card

Here I created a card using Tim Holtz alcohol inks for the background, masking off a space behind the frog. Start with a piece of glossy white card stock measuring 4x 5 1/4.

TIP: when using a mask for the alcohol inks make sure you have secured the mask with removable adhesive. When you remove the mask you will have a stark white circle, use a new piece of felt with a light tan color to blend the background with some blending solution to soften the edges.

I cut the frog and greeting with the Cricut and added three punched circles with dimensional adhesive to "pop" the greeting. To get the "stripped" look on the greeting, I used 3 colors of green brushed tipped markers. All of this is layered onto a soft grey standard sized card base
made with DCWV texturized card stock.
