Tanda Teaser For the Big Man!


This is the card I've made for my Dad....no he's not fat, he is just my font of all knowledge and hence my big man! He has always loved sailing, but had to give it up when my brother and I appeared on the scene. The love of sailing didn't get passed on to me, despite my Chemistry teacher's best efforts, but it did to my brother who trained as an instructor and can blame crewing on the Tall Ships for finding the love of his life and moving to Boston MA. He's now got two boys and has given up sailing too!

I spotted two Tanda Stamps that I thought would have a lot of potential if they were resized....so I asked Andrew to do just that....The waves can be found on one of the Pirate plates and is tiny...blown up to this size it fits the DL card as a border perfectly...it also has a lovely oriental feel...but more of that in later weeks! The ship is on the Transport set and again works fabulously at this larger size.

The ship was stamped in Distress ink as were the waves...the waves were then coloured using Copic Markers. I also used the waves on the Tag...

I know that not everyone has a father around...I have one less Father's day card this year, so I just want to stress that this is a Man card challenge rather than a Father's day challenge..I hope you have time to join us over on the Tanda Blog and Forum, and look forward to seeing your work!

And just incase this was all getting a bit too man orientated....here are a few more flowers....










Take care
