This hardworking man has my back! It's good to have someone looking out for you!
- I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Brilliance Graphite Black.
- I used a water brush to dip in lids of SU! ink pads and colored the hard working man. If you find the color is too intense, drop water into ink (learned that tip from Kittie). After the ink dried, I cut him out, using a craft knife around the the tight places.
- I opened up my base card and mask the inside with a piece of scrap paper to create a sharp edge right where the card closes. I used the stipple brush to add some background color and then stamped the hammer, saw, and bandage. For me hammers, saws and bandages go together. :o)
- I adhered the image to the Nestabilities cut layers. Tip: When gluing a smaller piece that will over hang, lay it where you want it and make a small light pencil lines on the base card at the edge on the three sides. Remove it and put your adhesive on the base card inside your pencil lines and then lay your smaller piece over the adhesive at the pencil lines.
- I then stamped the sentiment and added a tool element with glue dots.
