Mr Fix It

I made this card last night for my honey. He has gotten to be such a great handy man. There isn't anything he can't do (I don't think!)lol He just got done laying the floor for my new stamp room and it looks so nice!! I will take pictures as soon as I get moved in and organized.
I used More Mustard as my card base. I did the faux wood grain for the background. I just got my Mr. Fixafella stamp and this was the first time I inked him up. I colored him with my Prismacolors and gamsol. I used the sponge daubers to distress him and the distressing tool, he's layered on Garden Green then on Choc Chip. I distress the Garden Green some just to tone it down some. I had some of the screw brads and used them. On the envelope I used For Father. I just hand wrote the sentiment.

Have a great weekend.

I love all of the distressing you did on this! Where did you find the faux wood background technique? I know I've seen it somewhere, but I can't remember where! Duh! ;0)
