fathers day cards and altered art

As you know today is fathers day so i made two cards one for DH and the other for my Dad. The photograph card is for DH, using some old paper i had in my stash. The other is made from crate paper toy box collection, a spellbinder die was used to make the lip of an envelope, a button and the stamps used are from papertrey ink. Next is a couple of pieces of altered art. My friend carol gave us two challenges a domino and a puzzle piece. Originally i painted the domino but then decided to cover it in graphic 45 steampunk paper. Embellished this with Tim holtz stamps (i got from a qvc tsv) added a butterfly and a pen nib. I then cut out a house shape with a TH alterations die, covered this in paper, and stamped images and text from the TH stamps and 7 Gypsies stamps and the gave it a coat of glossy accents. The puzzle piece uses graphic 45 Alice papers, a squashed bottle top which i have tried to make into a fob watch, using patterned papers, an acetate watch image, TH spinner and watch piece and bead. I have then stamped an Alice image on to paper and adhered to puzzle piece. Stamped do not disturb ( from my 7 gypsies set) and again coated in a layer of glue.
