For my Father's Day project for the Inspiration Challenge - I was inspired by this camera tag from Uncle Dan's The Great Outdoors Store.
My father died suddenly at the age of 66 when I was just 27 so this is a little memorial to him for this Father's Day.
The picture of him that I cut out and placed on the panel was taken when Mum and he were at the Grand Canyon the summer before he died - he was a photo buff - and if you look closely - you'll see he has a camera in his hand in this photo!
This is a card front - held up with a die cut easel from Tim Holtz. I scribble colored over the white embossed sentiments with watercolor pencils.
Accessories: Scor Tape, foam tape, white embossing powder, hot gun, small easel die - Tim Holtz Alterations, photo printed from computer on rustic cream in Sepia ink, Prismacolor Watercolor pencils, Labels 8 Spellbinders
Wonderful card!!! I'm sure your dad would love this card and be so proud of you. He liked photography after all, and that is a form of art, just like your card. This is a very touching tribute to your Dad. TFS

What a wonderful tribute to your dad. I lost both my parents early (I was 25 and 38 ) so I know how it is....I always feel sort of lost on those days honoring them but I do remember all the good times..my dad liked photography, too. This is awesome Julia!

I'm sorry that your dad has passed, but it is good that you have wonderful memories of him. I think it is very therapeutic to make a card in his memory. That's especially cool the way you put his photo on the card.

How totally precious (that's not a word I use a lot). I am just compelled to say the my dad died when I was 23. Many years ago my sister made me a shadow box with a picture of my dad standing in his beloved rose garden and to this she added actual dried roses from his garden....it is one of my great treasures.
Your tribute is lovely, Julia!! TFS!

...sure itís got a catchy beat, but can you stamp to it?
