Fathers Day Card

Well with Father's Day just round the corner I thought I'd better pull my finger out and get busy!  Probably not the best time to try and do something different for me but hey ho that's me! lol  I recently won some fabulous Delicious Doodles images and this is just one of the ones I chose, I loved it and didn't think about how I was going to use it or who for, just loved it so got it!  Well I put my pens away for the most part and got out my ink pads and cotton wool balls and set too!  I'm actually pleased with how it turned out especially for a first attempt.  I did use my spectrum noirs for the rocks, lighthouse and definition on the sand.  Once I'd done the colouring was a bit stuck as to how to use it! lol  So I cut a frame on the Cricut and made an easel card, did some inking round some edges for definition and made a sentiment on the the pc and put it all together as an easel card.  Really didn't want to add anything else as I felt it would detract, so this card will be winging its way to my dad in the post tomorrow.
