Show it off Saturday Linky Party

made this card for my dad and two brothers for father's day
every year my dad and mom would back up the station wagon
we would leave our house at the crack of dawn to take the long ride down 
to the Jersey shore
Long Beach Island at Barnegat Light

I can't even tell you how long I Have had this stamp I bought in 
a little 5 & Dime Store (yes showing my age)
as a souvenir
 with the new trend being water coloring just had to
try to paint this stamp
SO happy with the way it came out
I used Tim Holtz distress inks on an acrylic block 
and a water brush on Tim Holtz water color paper
stamped Happy Fathers day on the
inside of the card

Hope everyone has a fantastic day tomorrow!
