Masculine card for Father's Day

It is Father's Day here in Australia today, so I made this card for my Dad:
I started with some watercolour cardstock, and stamped the Highline Ironwork background stamp from Hero Arts in Versamark, then embossed it with Liquid Platinum embossing powder from Ranger. I added colour with Zig markers in various blues, and then added a pop on lime green, before spraying the entire panel with water and heat setting. I finished the panel with a spray of Perfect Pearls in water. I cut the panel down as shown, and added a sentiment (sorry, not only is that stamp discontinued, the company doesn't exist any more). I finished with some faux stitching in black down either side of the panels.

 I'll be sharing this card at Less is More challenge - they have a colour challenge this week:

I'll also be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, where they're playing with Hero Arts products, and their theme is Anything Goes!

Thanks for visiting :)
