Tools

Welcome

Today's card is one I made for a mechanic...

I started with a background I had made using Brushos


The sentiment is a magazine freebie that I copper embossed and trimmed around, 
then mounted with foam tape.


The tools were from a Darkroom Door set - Tool Shed I embossed them in copper ep and fussy cuut them and again used foam tape to mount them


The feature panel was mounted over copper metallic paper and then onto dark brown card

How very perfect for a mechanic Maxine, I don't think I would have known where to start, I find male cards hard enough as it is.

Great mans card. So clever!

Neet said...

Those tools look just like some I found in the shed, just about on the point of going rusty. In fact they look so realistic I would be delighted if `I had made them like that.
A perfect card for a mechanic, or any man.
Blessings, Neet xx
