My daughter got out this piece of plaid paper, which I believe was a freebie from a magazine, to make a card for a friend of hers. She didn't get round to making it, and the scrap of paper has remained in the heap of odds and ends in the corner of my desk ever since. I really must have a tidy-up and general sort-out one of these days.
The stamp is from a new set I bought thinking that it would be good for chaps. With Father's Day around the corner, I thought I'd better start on some.
I hand stamped the fishy background with Old Paper distress ink, and generally muddied up the edges of the image too. I also line-embossed these edges on my scoring board.
The stamping on the slider particularly pleased me, as I used my DIY Stampamajig made from my Granddaughter's Lego, together with a piece of food-packaging plastic, in order to get the sentiment actually on the slider in vaguely the correct position.
I had seen something on Youtube here, so decided to have a go. The word Dad actually was from part of a larger sentiment, so I put sticky tape over the bits I didn't want to stamp before inking, and took it off before stamping, so I just got the word I wanted.
All in all I was pleased with my efforts.
