Two contrasting sheets of neutral backing paper printed from CD Rom, One sheet replaced in printer, where I made up a sentiment and added a partial quote about fatherhood. Each sheet was cut with Grand Labels #4, one used for insert and one used for envelope front.
Stamped images from the Kanban Male/Football themed stamps in black onto Kanban Cream Card:
Expressions such as No.1 Dad and
Dad You’re a Winner
The main images were cut out with Square Swatches and inked with Brushed Corduroy while still in place. Also cut with Fancy Tag and Antique Frame and inked with Brushed Corduroy.
Some of the soccer boots were cut out and framed with Jute at rear.
Stamped a second image of the footballer using Hazel ink pad, trimmed and shaped, applied embossing ink all over the image then applied embossing powder, heated then reapplied all layers in this manner until a smooth glossy tile resulted. When completely set, I placed in freezer to encourage cracking. Once cracking was helped along a bit I removed from freezer and inked over the cracks to add to distressing and aging effects.
