Peaceful Day

It's my Dad's birthday is today and I've made this card for him.  This digi stamp set is from Doodle Pantry called "Cattail Pond" and comes with the cattail images and the pond image and several sentiments.  It was originally released in February and is perfect for so many type of cards, including masculine as I've done here.

The pond and cattail images were colored in Copic markers - I used the colorless blender pen to get the mottled effect on the grass and in the pond.  I've used the hound's tooth embossing folder from Cuttlebug for the torn background panels. The main image was cut out using Spellbinders Labels #20.  Everything was distressed using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress inks.

We have the "Stock the Pantry" challenge going on at the Doodle Pantry blog - still plenty of time to enter a card or papercraft project using a Doodle Pantry image. If you win, you get to stock your pantry with Doodle Pantry images!  We'd love it if you joined us in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by today!
