Starting Father's Day for 2013

Have been trying to get ahead with some Father's Day cards- this is what we made at the last class.
I used the great new set Timeless Talk and stamped the image twice- once in Stazon black and once with Versamark which I heat embossed using the Pewter Powder ( a definite favourite!!) I cut out the gramophone horn and mounted it up slightly with dimensionals. The image fits well into the 21/2" circle punch. I used the clockworks background stamps to lay down a bit of colour on a scrap of Very Vanilla onto which I stamped the sentiment. It needed a bit of a lift so I ran the bottle top through the Bigshot to flatten it out.(Sadly they are now retired, but they were in the Summer Mini last year and I think they are perfect for male cards). I used a few strips of some Modern Medley DSP and layered the black image on a square of Very Vanilla 6cm x6cm. The background card is Tempting Turquoise, and the finishing texture is some jute string (ordinary household grade). The letters are from a retired alphabet set but they fit perfectly into the 3/4" punch and the repetition of the circles works well I think.
the girls had fun making these and they all looked great finished.
 We also did a few using the Penny Farthing stamp but I will have to post photos tomorrow.Thanks for looking, Liz
