CPC Blog Hop - For the Man in Your Life

Good morning my cyber friends.  Today starts our blog hop for this months Theme over at Christian Paper Crafts.  The Theme for this month is Father's Day, Masculine, Soldiers.  So that should get you ready to pick up that paper and get a little inky.  Also make sure you link your project here!

This is a card that was inspired by this weeks sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts and one I did for my dad for Father's Day!  I am hoping the boat may bring back some of his fun days out fishing and boating.  He just loved doing those things and use to catch a lot of fish.  You would not believe how healthy he looks but has no memory of anything.  That is the sad part about Alzheimer's, but you learn to deal with it.  And my dad seems happy enough.
What I did here was stamp the image onto naturals white card stock and then used different inks to sponge around it to create the ocean look.  I just love this small stamp set called Uncharted Territory.  You can do so much with it.  Also the lighthouse is cut out of the Designer Series Paper called Nautical Expedition.  No stamping with that, I just cut it out.

Here is a side view of the card!
