Nautical Dad’s Day Card, Tim Holtz
I have been excited for this new Sea Life Tim Holtz set since he sneaked it back in January! This lobster is amazing! I just love the detail!
And you know what ink I used to stamp it? Distress Oxide in Fired Brick!! Since Distress Oxide inks have pigment/dye fusion, the pigment properties allow for a very crisp and detailed stamped image!
more about Distress Oxides:
I shared all kinds of other information on these new inks in a special post on the Simon Says Stamp blog, you can see more of that here
I also have been playing with these inks a TON and shared them in many different ways, you can see all of these posts here
I inked up the background with Broken China Distress Oxide, and stamped some of the seaweed with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. I then stamped out “DAD” with Tim Holtz Tall Text ABC stamps.
I attached the banner with Tim Holtz’s Tiny Attacher, I just love using that little stapler when adhering just isn’t enough. I can’t wait to give this card to my Dad in a couple weeks he will be coming to the Cape to celebrate with me 🙂

Love this fun card! The detail is amazing. I just got the Distress Oxide inks but I haven’t tried them out yet. I am excited to now!
Very cool. I always love more info about the Oxide ink line and how you are using them.
Super cool! Love the custom backgrounds and the block letters! I hope you’re giving this to your Dad for Father’s Day! 🙂
