A Card "Built" for You

According to the plans, it's time for another challenge at the Hambo Hoedown.  This week's challenge is to "use something a carpenter would use" since this week's new image is "Carpenter".  This was a good challenge. At first I'm thinking ...screws, nails, glue.  Hummm This could be tough.  Then I came up with something.  What do you think?


Stuff I Used:
Image-Carpenter digital image by Hambo Stamps
Coloed with Copics
Skin-E21, E13
Hair-E23, E25
Gloves-toolbelt-E31, E33
Jeans-B91, B95, B99
Shirt-B21, BG18, orange Le Pen
Suspenders-R24, R27, silver Le Pen
Hard hat-YR04, YR09
Boots-E23, E25, Y26, YR24
Background-Valspar paint sample #5007-10
Ribbon-Orange flagging tape
Sentiment-Hambo Stamps

flagging tape

I added a hand drawn floor plan behind the image and popped it all up on homemade black foam squares.
I added a smaller image and another paint sample and more flagging tape to the inside.

I hope I built a satisfactory card this week.  And hope you'll join in the fun.  Head over to the Hambo Hoedown and get all the details.

Thanx for looking and please comment.
