All About U, Dad

Here's one from the archives (Father's Day last year, in fact), but since Father's Day is coming up, and since All About U features in this month's promotion, I thought it was a good time to drag it out!

The card base is Sahara Sand, with Canvas Background stamped in Creamy Caramel on top. The other colours are Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red and Old Olive.
I've used quite a few direct-to-paper techniques, and applied ink to the paper straight from the inkpad. This is where the finger grips on the sides of the inkpads come in really handy...much less chance of me dropping my inkpad in my lap!
I've also used paper ribbon on the tag. It's easy to tie it in a knot if you run it along the edge of your table a few times to loosen the fibres.
To stamp the heart, I've first stamped in ruby red, then inked just the edges of the stamp in Not Quite Navy, and overstamped, slightly off the first heart.
