MCT May Release Sneak Peek #2: Father's Day Mustache

by Veronica

Welcome to Day 2 of the My Creative Time May Release Sneak Peeks! Today's featured stamp set is Here's Lookin' At You - perfect for Grads and Dads!

My 4" x 4" card for today was definitely inspired by my Dad and his mustache. We've always called him the Silver Fox because since I can remember, he's always had black and silver hair (more silver than black nowadays *giggle*). To achieve my salt and pepper mustache, I cut the 'stache with the die from What's Growing On? in silver card stock and used a black fine tip marker to add the black 'hair'.

I added some flair to my card base by stamping the tiny mustaches from Here's Lookin' At You in Versamark ink and embossing with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is also from today's featured set. This black/gray/silver card is just PERFECT for my Dad this Father's Day!
