Handy Bday

I was digging through my Wish-RAK pile yesterday and stumbled upon this image. I think it's the last one I have of this little guy. Anyhow, I decided to put him to good use and combine him with this color combo. It's great for guy cards. I colored my image in with my Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I don't know why the blue turns out that way in pictures. I always have a tough time getting it to photograph correctly. It's darker in real life!! I took a million photos and finally just picked this one. I punch out a photo corner in the Kraft cardstock and added a screw brad that I found in my stash. It works perfectly with the handyman. To add a little texture to my card, I pulled out my mat pack and paper piercing and poked some holes in the Kraft paper. Then stamped my Crackle Background in Bashful Blue. Happy Stamping!

Stamps: Fixafella (Stamping Bella), sentiment (A Muse), Crackle background (TAC, retired)
Ink: Palette Noir, Bashful Blue
Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White, Kraft
Other: photo corner punch, screw brad, Koh-i-noor pencils, OMS, mat pack, paper piercer
