Father's Day

The panel with the wrenches was made by heat embossing the stamped image, then painting over it with Stargazers.  The embossing powder resists watercolors.  It's a nice metallic look that goes well with tools.

I didn't have a Father's Day stamp, so I hand wrote the sentiment with a milky gel - frankly, I don't think it diminishes the card one bit to have  handwritten sentiment.

Love the combo of colors and you are right about the handwritten saying. It looks great!
