Bloggers Challenge - Father's Day

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, I'm glad you stopped by today!  This week's Bloggers Challenge theme is Father's Day.  If you haven't gotten your cards done just yet, hopefully you'll be inspired by this weeks challenge.

I used the Bird Watching image from Cornish Heritage Farms, stamping in Black Archival on Clay Coated Card  Stock.  To add color I used the Pulled Glimmers Technique from the current TJNL.  The technique works wonderfully with silhouette images, as it's a great way to add color quickly.  I layered this on a Black panel that was distressed with the Distezz-it-All.

Details:
Stamps - Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink - Black Archival
Card Stock - So Saffron, Teal, Black, Clay Coated
Other - Glimmer Mist, Distrezz-it-All
