"Dad," you rock!!!

My Dad does rock!  Actually, both of my parents do!  I'm certainly lucky and blessed to have an amazing family!  Here's the card that I made for my dad for Father's Day using some PTI stamps and a little bit of trickery:

I used the Dot Spot PTI stamp set to try this week's Make it Monday #19 - the Rock and Roll technique.  I used distress ink for the blue dots and pigment ink for the orange dots to create some grunge and different textures.

Now I know what you're thinking... this sentiment stamp CLEARLY says "Dude, you rock!" normally.  After I inked up the stamp, I carefully erased the "E" and the top of the u and turned the u into an a with a black pen!  I actually love how it turned out!  =)  I added some orange stickles, two glittery orange stars, a blue rhinestone and some twine!!!  Here's a closeup of the adjusted sentiment and the embellishments:

Again, I used the "Make it Monday #19 - Rock and Roll Technique" over at the Papertrey Ink blog for this week's challenge!  =) 

OK I hate to run but I've gotta go!  Lots to do before I head off to Philly for the weekend!  =)  Have a fabulous weekend everyone! 


  1. Cute card, your dad is sure to love it! And great job with turning that dude into a dad!!!

  2. So creative of you to alter a sentiment stamp to get what you want from it!! This is really cool. I love how you used the Dot Spots!

  3. Love this card, especially the colors! I'm linking this up on Practical Scrappers!
