Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 190 # For A Special Man/Boy or Father's Day.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

Margaret is hosting today and our challenge is 'For A Special Man/Boy or Father's Day'.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:
Naturally I can't leave you without showing you how I made this so here goes!
All my UK friends will remember these old car Tax Discs.
I ripped these apart and arranged them on an A3 white card.
Next I used a Prima stencil and applied ink with a blending tool.
At this stage it looks like this.
I finished this off with text stamping and Colour Bloom Spray Mist.
Everything is ready now to put the card together.
The blue mat has the centre cut out which was then used to layer the other sections. This is something I do often as it makes the card lighter and stops wastage of card.
So there you have it all finished.
I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.
