Test of Time Father’s Day Card

This is the second of three cards I will make this year.  I once again used the Heartfelt Creation’s Everyday Heroes.

The background stamp “My Hero” is stamped in Tsukineko StazOn Saddle Brown.  It is colored with Rexel Derwent Watercolor Venetian Red and Deep Cadmium.    Then I blended the colors with a Niji Water Brush.  The laces and seams in the boots didn’t seem to stand out enough so out came the Zig marker in Pure Brown to color in these areas.  I fussy cut both the watch face and the boots.  The die cut edge is Spellbinders Classic Decorative Inserts Two.   To get just the length with out cutting farther on the card I used a piece of removable tape to mark where I wanted the die cut to stop (sorry no photos, it was late!)  then placed this right on the edge of the cutting platforms.  I was glad it worked so neatly!  I selected a few complementary colors from the Everyday Heroes paper set and layered the card together.  The fussy cut images are adhered with dimensional foam adhesive as it the top sentiment layer.  

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
