Fathers day card

Hello Lovelies - how are you today? I hope your Tuesday has been good. I've had a great day - a slow run but a good 5 miles! Then I went for a swimming lesson. I am rather slow so I'm hoping to improve - I learned quite a lot about front crawl - my technique was rubbish - I hope that with the improvements suggested today I can increase my speed in time. I've got two weeks to practice before the next lesson! I'll be swimming tomorrow so I'm hoping to put some of it into practice.

Thanks for your kind words on yesterdays post - I do appreciate them - I would like to share a make with you today for fathers day - my dad loves owls so the new owl stamp from Clarity was my stamp of choice.


I started by stamping the owl then colouring him with spectrum noir pencils. Then I masked him off and created the background using distress inks and clarity masks.


I added the geese from the new geese set then a sentiment and finally some vegetation from another clarity set.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:


Hope you have a good evening - I'll be visiting later! Big hugs rachel xx
