Splatter Happy Father's Day Card with Bella and Friends Stamp set

It's Father's Day card time.  I wanted to use some of my new Stampin' Up stamp sets out of the new catalog.  Bella and Friends was one of my favorite stamp sets from the catalog, who doesn't like cute puppies?? 

This stamp set was perfect to use for Father's Day! We have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that adore my husband. Here they are:

I used my misti to line up the Happy Father's Day sentiment perfectly!  This stamp set is from the Guy Greetings set. The colors for this card was from the ColourQ challenge:

I stamped the sentiment in Basic Grey ink along with the puppy in the Bella & Friends stamp set.
I used Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede and Marina Mist on this card for the card challenge.
I also used the theme of Father's Day from:

This is the one layer card challenge from Less is More, one of my favorites:
This week's theme was splatters.  I LOVE splatters and keep my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set on my desk since I use it so much.

I did this card on water color paper so I took my aqua painter and added some smears, I loved seeing the ink blend and mix. I didn't want to mix all the splatters and make the card "muddy" looking, so I had to be careful where to use my aqua painter.  

I wanted to do something on the inside of the card, so I added this image from Marquee Messages on the inside, also done with my Misti.  My kids are excited to give this card to their dad.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other cards in the challenges.
