A Krafty Father's Day

Hi there, folks! No challenge entries today, just a Father's Day card I whipped up using my new Masculine Motifs set from PTI. When this set was introduced, Nichole Heady showcased this tree image and an easy Copic technique she used to color them. I have been slowly collecting Copic markers but have been afraid to use them, so this seemed like a low-stress way to get started!

Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft), Papertrey Ink (Ripe Avocado)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Masculine Motifs)
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Tea Dye Duo), Copic markers
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate)
other: Papertrey Ink (jute twine), wood button

I used the Ripe Avocado Copic Trio available from PTI. I added a strip of Ripe Avocado cardstock below to ground the image, which was distressed a bit using the Linen & Canvas impression plate. The kraft background panel and the main image were also impressed with the Linen & Canvas plate.

Now I just need to get this in the mail so it will arrive on time!

Thanks for all the lovely comments you've been leaving--I do read each and every one and appreciate them all! Have a great day!
