As a kid I remember buying my dad the cliché gifts like soap-on-a-rope, wallets, cologne, and of course, the neck tie! (Even though my dad was a mechanic and wore a tie like, twice in his life… lol) Still, nothin’ says fathers day like a tie, so I ran with the idea! I stamped the tie image on some patterned paper and lightly shaded the ties in with Copics.. Against the patterned paper the images were lost so they needed some “oomph!”
- Patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket “Circa 1934.” I cut it down to letter size and once stamped became a custom patterned paper!
- The heart stamp is from a previous TSG stamp set… Can you guess which one? I love having an arsenal of TSG stamps because you can always find exactly what you’re looking for!
I think we can all remember back to a time when we idolized our parents,most of us still do, and we wanted to grow up to be JUST like them. I mean,what girl HASN’T put on their mom’s shoes, and what boy hasn’t worn Dad’s tie?Just in time for Mother and Father’s Day, Torico has illustrated the CUTEST dress up set I have EVER seen!!
When I Grow Up is a4x6 set that includes a total of 15 stamps and will sell for $15.00.
