Father's Day Cards

Here they are as promised. I made these before I went away and I am so very glad I was able to give my Dad his on Father's Day. He is a big fan of my cards. Masculine cards are not my strong point and I do struggle with coming up with ideas that suit guys rather than gals or kids but these turned out really nice I think. I made 2 each of 3 different designs.

The cardstock is Real Rust and Black. The DP was from Bo Bunny Press. The image was stamped onto cream cardstock.
I used a Tiger Face stamp that I bought recently from TAC. The sentiment stamps were from Archiver's.
The image was watercolored using real rust ink and an aqua painter. I used a blue gel pen for the eyes to make them stand out.
The sentiment was versamarked then embossed using a copper embossing powder. The cards were all finished using antique copper brads.

Thanks for looking
