Father's Day

Today's card is a fun one.  We are enjoying a long wknd here in Canada so more time to play....yeah!
This am, I saw the challenges at Splitcoast so decided to combine them.  One had a water them and the other was to use the Embossing Folder Stamping technique on your card.  Well you all know how much I love having a new use for my embossing folders so I was off to make a card.  
(for those of you that want to see how it's done go HERE)
I began by cutting a circle mask and attached it to my cardstock.  I pressed my paper into the wet ink and then when I removed the mask, the imprinted circle was left.  I love the wet looking splashes of colour it leaves behind when the colours blend together.  It reminded me of a planet so I added the little robot from Birdie Brown and the sentiment for The Alley Way.
I think I will give this to my hubbie for Father's Day.

Ohhhh... such a cute robot *heart*

I have never heard of this rubber stamp company before - sometimes it seems that I don't live oversea but on the back side of the moon *sigh*

Really love your card.

Thanks for sharing.
