Father's day card

Hi everyone! I bought the Gina K stamp set By the sea 2 because I saw so many wonderful cards made with it. Here's what I did.



I cut out a circle using my nesties and sponged on some canary and marigold ink from colorbox.  The crane is stamped in Versafine ink and then I took a black prisma color pencil and added the shadow.

Water is done using Studio G blue inks. I tore a piece of printer paper and used that as a guide for the waves. Using a white sharpie paint pen I added a few "white caps" to the water. The sky is sponged with pink grapefruit, pixie pink and sky blue ink.

I decided to keep the layout of the card pretty simple since it's for my dad for Father's day.  Lastly, I added tiny black rhinestones from Kasiercraft to the corners.

ETA: This card was entered into the Simon Says Stamp masculine/father's day challenge found here.

Thanks for stopping by!
