Father's Day Memories

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Tonight I got a little idea -- get messy!  I've seen so many projects using stencils and paste and ink and totally love playing with this technique so I decided to take out my stash and see what happens!  

The background was made with a new stencil from STAMPlorations as is the car stamp.  The label is a (half) die cut from Papertrey Ink.  The car actually looks like an old jalopy my dad had when I was a little girl (we had old jalopies til I was in high school!) My dad's been gone for many years now, but this actually brought back a flood of wonderful memories!

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

 Last but certainly not least....Simon Says - Favorite Technique
