Mr Fix It

With Father's Day coming up I thought I'd better make a few male themed cards.  I always find them a challenge and prefer to do the girly stuff.

Anyway here we go :)

The image I've used is Mr Fix It Dad from Make It Crafty.  It's been coloured with ProMarkers, cut out with a Spellbinders die and then  though the background looked too white.  So I've messed it up with some brown ProMarker and a blender.
Papers are from Tim Holtz Idea-ology and Wellington (found a scrap left in my stash).

The brown string is actually from a parcel and my hubby had said do you want to keep this - my reply of course I'm sure I'll find a use for it :)

All that's left to mention are some Tim Holtz Idea-ology cogs
I'll hopefully be showing you a few more male cards soon

Hi Andrea! This card rocks! Your coloring is beautiful and I love the added embellishments. You'd never know that guy cards are a challenge for you. I always find cards for the guys challenging too.
