A colleague at work asked me if I could make a card for her brother in law who has been helping with DIY jobs at her house, so she wanted a card with a bathroom (!) on it! Woo hoo! I thought, so this is what I came up with...and despite it being one of those much loved 'men's cards', I'm pretty pleased with it! Luckily, it also fits in with a few of the 'men's card' challenges that are running at the mo!
Anyhoo, the image (along with a picture of a bathroom) is the fab 'Mr Fixit' digi that I bought this week from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil. I coloured him with my Spectrum Noirs and then cut him out. I used some great paper in my new My Minds Eye 'Miss Caroline' pad - which looks like planks of wood - perfect for the DIY theme...and layered it up onto gold and brown card, before adding my bathroom picture and my Mr Fixit, popped up on Pinflair Gluegel. To finish off I added a sentiment - a fab freebie from Nettys Cards - and two little brads in the shape of a hammer and a saw. I then decorated the inside to match.
Hope you like my card. I'd like to enter it in the following challenges:
Mo Manning - Something New (My latest Mo Manning digi purchase and My Minds Eye Papers)
Charisma Cardz - It's a Boy Thing
Totally Gorjuss - Manly
Stamp and Show - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - New Year, New Stash
Thanks for looking!
