Tiddly Inks - Throwback Thursday

Over at the Tiddly Inks site on Thursday we have one artist showcase one of the older images - and today was my turn!  There's also a great chance to win this or a similar image over on the site - so pop on over!

I admit that doing guy cards is not my strength - I seem to struggle more with them than most cards.  But when I found this wonderful image called "Carpenter Joe" I knew I had hit the jackpot.  I have very handy men in my life and I love that this card could work for many occasions for any of them.


I colored him up with my Copics, added a piece of brown that had been run through an embossing folder and inked, some great cork and a couple of pieces of patterned paper to make this simple but detailed card. I also added a strand of woven rope to the edge of the photo as it has a more manly look than ribbon!  hehe

Remember to stop by the site for a chance to win this image - either Carpenter Joe or Carpenter Jane image!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs - Add texture
Deep Ocean Challenge - Letter B - boy, blue
Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything goes
Craft Us Crazy - Show us your favorite - image
Charisma Cardz - Anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - Eye for detail
