Father's Day

The challenge from Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday challenge this week was to use tissue paper to create texture. I had never tried this before and went through several flops trying to stamp on it before I gave in and just used it as textured paper. Live and learn, I guess. So, since this sketch is the Mojo Monday #194 from Verve is was very fitting to used the brown and blue sparkle tissue paper that Verve packages their stamp sets in. The stripes are the tissue paper over white cardstock and the bottom is paper from DCWV covered with white tissue paper. The sentiment is from SU! and was overstamped with a medallion from PTI's "Guide Lines 2". I used the same image on the background. You can see the texture and the stamp better in the second photo. The card also answers the Stampin Sisters In Christ challenge to use something new (the tissue paper texture), Timeless Tuesday #121 challenge to create a Father's Day card, Paper Variety challenge to create something For The Guys, and Delightful Challenges challenge to create a Father's Day project
