Handy Man

This week, the Pink Elephant has a sketch:

I used the image intended for last weeks Stampin' Chic challenge which I just did not get around to doing. I've coloured it with watercolours and a little bit of silver gel pen. All edges have been rounded and inked. The textured background is a sheet of card which is just the perfect colour!

Card candy and tiny nuts added too.

  • Textured background: From my stash
  • Image: Clare Curd Signature Range coloured with watercolours
  • Card Candy: Craftwork Cards
  • Other embellishments: Scrap store


  1. Oh that is a great card - love the way you have used the nuts. I bought some the other day to use on men's cards - they make a great embellishment.

  2. Great card! I always love seeing ideas for masculine cards. The image is so cute and you colored it wonderfully. I might have to look into this company because this would be a wonderful image to use on dh's cards!! Thanks for joining us at TPE this week.
