TRAVIS DON'T LOOK

Okay.....I'm posting several other cards first because I don't want my son-in-law to see the first picture on Facebook!  Today is barn wood.  The first two cards are ones that I did as design work for the TJ newsletter early in January using the new Barn Wood technique.  I had a lot of fun making the window on the one card.  Stamp credits are "I brake for stamps" on the first two cards.


Now for the card that I made for my Son-in-law, Travis.  I am sooooooo tickled with this card.  I wanted to make him a card with a tool box on it.  Alas, no tool box stamp to be found in my stamp hole.  So.......I can draw that.........I say to myself.  Well........it was a lot easier in my head than on paper.....took me a couple of hours to get the drawing the way I liked it but I LIKE IT!!  I hope that you do too.  I had the design for this card in my head and it actually looks like what I wanted!  So many times, that does NOT happen.  I colored the image with copic markers.  Then I remembered that I had these neat screw snaps that I had been hoarding for about 5 years and they were perfect to finish off the card.  To the right of the image is another piece of barn wood.  Maybe some fancy dancy stamp company will see it and want to buy the image.......hahahahahahhahahah!!

I love all three of these cards. I am so impressed with your drawing skills. I really like the look of that toolbox.

Your toolbox and tools are GREAT!!! And of course your Copic work is always perfect!!! I think you should just go ahead and submit the image (and a few more maybe)to say Gina K. or Flourishes. Father's day is coming up you know... Whatever you decide, I am loving your New Year's Resolution and so much easier than me having one and following it... LOL... I can just follow yours!!! Good job GF...
