Mark's Finest Papers
Believe it or not, this card was inspired by a different sentiment in this new set. I started off with the Go...Fish! sentiment and wanted to make a playing card. I cut my focal image to the size of a playing card (2 1/2 by 3 1/2), rounded my corners and set to sponging and stamping. I used a single word where the numbers or letters might go on a playing card. When I had my image finished, the card felt more like a Father's Day card, so I went with my gut!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to see what Tangii has in store!
