Father's Day

Sorry people, long time no blog. I hope to get back on track from today. Although the sunshine does beckon! Every sunny day is a bonus in Ireland, so we need to catch those rays when we can.
This is the card that I made for my husband on Father's Day. He flew away to England yesterday, hence the theme of the card. The card is distressed with vintage photo and brushed corduroy ink, over-stamped with brushed corduroy and walnut stain.
The tags are made using two different techniques. The green tag is distressed with peeled paint and shabby shutters. It was then swiped with espresso paint and finally the edges were embossed using vintage photo distress embossing powder. The brown tag is coloured with scattered straw, tea-dye, vintage photo and brushed corduroy inks. The stamps are Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous and the whole tag is dusted with some Perfect Pearls in Heirloom Gold.
I am entering this card in the My Partner in Crafting Crime Challenge #4.
