Art For Fathers Day

The project I am sharing today is not mine but the work of grandaughter Holly (11yrs)for her Dad for Fathers Day and can share because she couldn't wait and has already given it to him lol.

She was going to make a card then found this large MDF jig-saw piece I have had for a couple of years and sure there are some more somewhere!!! Anyway armed with a cardboard box and a selection of my Izink and Decoart sprays she got to work then using my Art By Marlene set of stamps(because has his own tattoo studio and also paints) coloured with promarkers and cut them out---well Grandma got the cutting out job lol she then got out my hot glue gun (her favourite tool) and stuck them all on -she found the stamped sentiment in my bit box and she finished off with Gilding wax round the edges.

I managed a B.paper from the spray left in the box.
