Um...yeah, I think so

Sharing a card featuring part of the uber cute Carpenter Joe image from Tiddly Inks.

Sadly this image didn’t make the cut when Christy moved back to Esty and closed her online store.  I’ve cropped down Joe to fit with the sketch I’ve used, which is from CAS(E) this Sketch.  He’s the flower element and I’ve done the rectangle element with some ink blending.  I then stamped my sentiment over both and threw on some extra embossing ink to make the splatter pattern featured in the sketch.  I figured added the splatter in this way with the colour I’ve gone with makes it kinda like shiny saw dust or maybe some metal shavings, although I know the latter doesn’t really fit with a carpenter but heck, maybe he’s more an all-round handyman like Bob the Builder.

As my card is CAS, I am also entering it in the current challenge at Cardz 4 Guys.  Loads of white space on it with just some single colour matting to add a bit of interest.  They’ve got a real simple happy birthday theme at TGIF this week so I’m linking up there too.
