Father's Day Cards with Sizzix

Welcome friends to my first Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!
This Group has a fun challenge for us created by Dawn called All About Occasions:
I used my Sizzix World's Best Dad stamp set, along with Ranger Watercolor Paper, The Stamp Market Color Crush Watercolor set and a Silver Black Velvet brush to create these cards:
Here is a close up of the Sizzix stamp set called World's Best Dad designed by Katelyn Lizardi. If you want a good deal, as of this post, it is on sale for $2.00!
For me it doesn't matter whether you watercolor first, then stamp and heat emboss or visa-versa. But for these card (I made 2) I did stamp with Altenew Obsidian Black ink and sprinkle with Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. When totally dried, I wet some of the area of the A2 card front with water and dabbed in the beautiful watercolor blues from The Stamp Market Half Pan Watercolor set.
I mounted both cards to a A2 sized card base made from Hero Hues Premium Dove White Card Stock. For me, this 120 lb. card stock is much easier to score and fold as opposed to other brands.
The fun inside sentiment is from Taylored Expressions' Punny Man Stamp Set. I believe this was a free stamp set for purchases over a certain amount. When you can, it's nice to take advantage of all the free offerings.
Well, that's my post for today and I hope you get a change to visit the Sizzix website for all the amazing sales going on now. Always nice to get a good quality product for a reduced price and thanks for stopping by.
