Mr Fix It - Woodware Design team challenge

Since I have quite a few sets suitable for Men's cards I found it hard to choose which one to use!

So in the end I went for those brave men who put up our shelves, plumb the washing machine, make holes that have to be filled...

I'm very pleased with the result.

I've combined three sets:
FRCL039 MR Fix It
FRCL079 Male Relatives

The frame is made using the wood plank in FRCL039. It would make an ideal frame for a fishing or gardening theme also.

I used the VersaMark pen to add some variation in the wood which was stamped on craft card.

I made the plumb line from string and the weight is the small tag punch upside down with the fancy bits trimmed.

I've used Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens for the colouring of the tools. For the rusty bits I used the dark orange Stardust pen. 

[Sakura Glaze pens for the colouring. It's all shinny!]

Torn paper for the background to add to the DIY theme.

Make sure to visit the Woodware blog to see what the other design team members have created for the Men's card challenge.
