Father's Day is on the Way!

I thought i'd get a head start on creating my Father's Day Cards. I just have two to make, one for my Father and one for Jonathons' Father. This is Stan one of the cool Retro Images that you can find at In Style Stamps. He is currently on sale, which is a bonus!

I decided to keep the theme of this card Monochromatic, using Basic Grey, Bordering Blue and a little bit of Black for emphasis! The DP is from SU, but for the life of me I can't remember the name, but I know that it's retiring or is retired!!!

I coloured Stan with Copics................Three Shades of Cool Grey for the pants adding a 4th (cool grey 7) for the shoes. The sentiment is from Classic Cars (retired SU set) and the Father from Everyday Flexible Phrases. I created the base for the sentiment with the Small and Large Tag punches from Stampin' Up! Well one more card to go and Father's day will be taken card of........hmmm now if only I could come up with an idea for presents as easily!

This is my second post for the day, don't forget to scroll down to see more!
Have a great weekend!
