Once upon a time when I was married, my husband was a real handyman. And a very brave (or foolish) one because some of the projects he undertook were a tad risky..like removing a wall without knowing if it was weight-bearing. This card reminds me of him.
The image I used is The Weekend Warrior by Art Impressions. I stamped it with VersaFine Black Ink and scanned it into my computer so I could import it into my Silhouette Design Screen. Once there, I erased the tools so they wouldn’t show from behind the brads. I also traced him and welded his outline to the rectangle on which he sits…you can see how the sides of the rectangle accommodate his hands in motion. Finally, I traced inside the shirt and filled it with a check pattern. I print and cut him and then colored him with Copic markers.
The card design, a Step Panel Card, was just so perfect for this theme! I found a tutorial for it on YouTube. Here’s a look at it from the side:
And looking down on it. Also like my ex, he left tools sitting all over the place!
And a final picture of the back of the card with the sentiment from the set. And another brad and some washi to accent.
