Father’s Day or one for the men at The Stamp Man

The new challenge at The Stamp Man is to create a card for Father’s Day which is coming up very soon in the UK.

My piece has been made with a downloaded map from Vintage Catnip, alcohol inks and a stamped image and some TH ephemera, plus a lighthouse button.

P1080062 copy

The map has been distressed with gesso and AI and stamped over with the clock face. The main image was made by dabbing AIs on glossy paper, sprinkling with blending solution. The clock is a fragment wit AI on it stuck onto the image from the TH paper stash.

Supplies include -
AIs – sail boat blue, denim, stream, meadow, pearl
DIs – walnut stain, weathered wood
Stamps – Aspects of Design 2 Nautical, TH The Journey
Paper stash by TH – Lost and Found
TH die – ticket strip
TH journaling ticket
Small alphabet stamps

Hi Brenda, this is really great and I think I'll be doing this challenge as I have one of these Nautical sets and the men in my family are maritime mad.

Sorry to hear you've still got blogger problems. I have a Mac so that might be why I haven't got any.

Thanks too for your kind comment about my daughter's results, we're all really pleased for her and apparently she got the high mark because the rather scary Central St Martins tutor seems to like her stuff (he's scary as he tends to shout at those whose stuff he doesn't like!!!)

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xxx

Another fabulous card Brenda, love the nautical theme and colours. I have to thank you for inspiring me this week when I have been sadly lacking in ideas !


Your projects are always inspirational Brenda, and this is just fabulous. Male cards are always the most difficult to create ( for me anyway), but this is superb - your hubby will love it I'm sure.

Have a happy weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx

Hi Brenda. Great minds hey!!!!! although we have used that stamp so differently. I love your blue and the altered map as backing is brilliant. That is something I need to try.
It's a stunning card.
Have a great weekend.
