Super Dad

Yesterday I showed you the card I made for my father for Father's Day on Sunday.  Today I'm showing you the card I made for my boys to give to their dad/my DH.

I used the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch, the Just Add Dad theme from Just Add Ink and the color theme from Stampin' Royalty to use black and white with a pop of color and came up with this card:

I stamped the buildings along the bottom of the card base using Fog ink.  Super Dad was colored with Copics.  The flag is meant to represent a dark night sky and I masked off a circle before sponging Pumice Stone and Black Soot ink in an ombre style.  I then removed the mask and lightly sponged whatever yellow ink was still on my yellow mini ink blending foam LOL.  Here's a close-up:

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Super (Paper Smooches)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Fog (SSS), Black Soot, Pumice Stone Distress Inks, a mystery yellow
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Xpress-it
Accessories:  Spellbinders Circle Dies, Copic Markers, MFT Fishtail Flag Stax dies
