Happy Father's Day

Sharing the Father's Day card I made today.  Used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for the layout.

Used Sweet and Sassy's stamp set Shining Light for the image and sentiment.  Colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  Tried to create a sunrise effect by sponging on ink   For the blue background I applied blue ink to an acrylic block and then swiped it on my paper.  Then I tried adding some "waves" by using my swirl stamp and gesso.  Very messy process!  I used white EP for the sentiment, added a couple twine knots to opposite corners.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week! Blessings!
