{Pin}spirational#11 - Thinking of You

Happy Father's Day to all you dad's out there!!!  I'm fortunate enough to have my dad in my life AND also a terrific Father-In-Law too!!  And.......our pups have a FABULOUS dad in Frank too!!!!  So, you'd think I would be posting a Father's Day card, right? Nope!  

I'm playing along with the {Pin}spiriational Challenge # 11 - which is seashells.

When I saw my blog friend Lynn's Card for this challenge.....I knew I had to play along.  I've had this twine netting for a looooong time.........can't even remember what it was used for but knew I'd be able to use it on a card....and finally........I did!!!

I stamped three Amuse seashells on watercolor paper and colored them in with Distress Inks.  I added some brown dots with a marker.  (I have two jars of shells in my room, so was able to get inspiration from them too!). I glued down the netting with glossy accents.  When I laid everything down....it seemed kind of boring..........so I decided to make some splatters for the background.  Splatters are my new favorite thing!!!!  I added a Hero Arts sentiment to finish it off!


Here's the inspiration photo.  You can play along until Monday night at midnight:

We're hosting a Father's Day breakfast here at the house for my parents, in-laws and aunt/uncle and cousins!  It will be a busy day - so I'll make some blog-rounds later!

Thanks for your visit!

Beautiful card, love the seashells and the "splatter". That netting is just so perfect and to think you had this lurking around your craft room. Sounds like a great Father's Day at your house, enjoy.
