SKETCH SATURDAY....."MR FIX IT !"



For Sketch Saturday (No 17) this week i decided to use another one of my new stamps and do a mans card.
The stamp a Forever Friends by Docrafts,coloured with Promarkers,Prisma's and a touch of Sakura,matted and layered using Nestabilities.
Cardstock is heavy weight leather look.
The paper and tape measure vellum is HOTP "Workbench Ephemera",i think it works really well with this image.
The "Mr Fix It" is cut and embossed on the Wizard and i have rubbed over it with a Versafine Vintage Sepia ink pad.
The thanks sentiment is a studio G clear stamp.
Eyelets and brad from stash.
Metal spanner from my hubby's shed...lol,can't think what he'd need this for,well it's too late now,and there's another one with my name on it...lol
