Hey there, Karen N here from Craftily Yours. Eek, could this stamp set from Lawn Fawn BE any cuter?! Seriously! And this paper is SO perfect for the masculine cards! I used it to make a Father's Day cards for my husband and my father.

On this first one for my dad, I used a Tim Holtz stars layering stencil and some Gesso mixed with Adirondack Denim color-wash to create the stars. I decided it looked like a rustic blue, so then I tore the paper to create the layers and used my Diztress-It-All to distress up the edges. The Timeless Twine in Natural seemed like the perfect finish.

And I had a BUNCH of the gesso mixture left, so I used an UmWow Studio stencil to add some hearts to my husband's distressed-up card. In this one, some 3 Girl JAM burlap ribbon finished it up.

Both images are colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers.

Craftily yours,
