men at work

Caution:  Men with tools!   This card is for today’s featured stamper challenge and it gave me a chance to use this great workbench image from Peddlers Pack!  Does your guy have a workbench – or do you?  Is it as neat as this one?

I stamped the image (it’s just one stamp that covers almost the front of a card) in Memento Tuxedo Black on Copic X-Press it Blending cardstock.  Then I went to work coloring with copics – I used a bunch and an image like this calls for many colors in the brown and grey ranges.  Here is what I used


Once I finished coloring I mounted it on red, then on a caramel card base.

The “caution” sentiment was computer generated and printed on yellow cardstock – I think is is saffron.

Take a closer look at the embellishment behind the sentiment – see that metallic thing?  That is called a “lock washer” and this one is  a 5/16″ size.  I was at Home Depot with Orvil and saw a small pack of these and thought they would make a great embellishment for a guy card.  I bet if these were in the craft store they would probably sell for about $5, but at Home Depot a pack of 12 were about $1.   I also found some cork pieces that I will use on another “guy” card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Spring is in the air…

Ah spring….is it here yet?  I think we can all agree that everyone is sick and tired of winter.  And I’m in Florida!  It was an especially cold winter for us and even though we did not suffer through blizzards, the temperature did go low enough for frost and hard freezes.  I am ready for spring!

This card was fun to color.  It may look like alot of work because of all the detail, but it really wasn’t.  The flowers in the cart are small enough that all I needed to do was to touch the tip of my marker to the image – it went very quickly!    I will say that the next time I  color this I’ll probably use some brighter greens for the leaves and have a few more blue flowers.   The image is from Peddler’s Pack and they have a wonderful selection of stamps.    Their online store only sells mounted but  you  can call them and  place an order for unmounted by phone.   They also have a brick and mortar store in Beaverton, Oregon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
