Erin Reed - June post with video tutorial

I wanted to create a fun funky card for my husband this Father's Day.  I went for rich color in blue, red, and rust, and blended them with kraft and white cardstock and trims to really let the rustic, grungy, and masculine feel of the card show.

Here is a quick video of how I made this mixed media card.

I also used this wonderful mood board from Off the Rails Scrapbooking as my jumping off point for this card, come join in on their wonderful June Challenge!!

Here are some up close shots of the wonderful texture from the embossing folders with all the amazing layers of colors from mists and mediums.
Don't forget your wonderful Dad's this Father's Day!!
