Father's Day Oops


I decided to enter the fun over on the PCP Sketch Challenge group. It's being sponsored by Karen's Doodles (and P.S. she's having a sale until June 6th). Karen has a number of great men images and this is a new one. Mr. Fix It Car.
The challenge is to make a Father's Day card using the sketch assigned. By now you all know that sketches give me a great deal of angst (try working that word into your daily conversation). I fret over the sketches trying to make my brain wrap around them to make a great card. This sketch wasn't so bad, it allowed me to follow my own personal quest of using up supplies I have on hand. So once again I pulled out my Lasting Impressions paper (who knew I had so much of this stuff) and made my choices for the different layers. I then set out to color the image to co-ordinate with the paper.
I knew as soon as I saw this image that I wanted to make it a funny card. Can you just picture this guy thinking to himself "I'll change Dad's oil and he'll think that's a great idea", then he realizes just what a mess he's gotten himself into. (as a side note something similar actually happened to me and it wasn't pretty).
So I colored with Copics and then I went to find something extra to put on it and I found this screw head brad in my stash. I pulled out my Making Memories brad setting tools and made a lot of noise. After wrapping the twine around the first layer I put the rest of the card together. Since the brad was so thick I pop dotted the image layer and added the sentiment.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
