Soldier Ian - Father's Day

Made this card for my husband for Father's day since he's our everday hero.
I made the beige and green patterened background papers by using some clear star stamps and clear plane stamps with my Versamark watermark ink pads.  LOVE this technique and I haven't used it in forever.
I also paper pieced Ian's ABU's (fatigues) with some camo paper I had.  They look a lot my husband's current uniform, including the green boots :0)


Entering this into the #43 challenge, "One for the boys" at A Crafty Little Place

Ingredients:
TGF Stamp - Soldier Ian
Clear stamps + Versamark Ink
White gel pen
Black eyelets
Card Candy
Glossy Accents (goggles, stuff on vest)
