Good morning everyone;
We had a beautiful hot day yesterday. Just as our workshop was wrapping up, around 4pm, so was the weather. What a storm we had!! The lightning was awesome (for those who love storms) and it just poured rain for hours. Crazy weather, but at least it's warm.
Today's High Hopes challenge is brought to you by Amy and she has chosen "Thinking outside the card". Creating something other than a card is such a fun challenge!!
A friend of mine had given me this adorable tool box pattern and the first thing I thought of was the HH new release "Carpener Ant" and "You're Handy, Man" images. I love all the detail Crissy added to this image, it was so much fun to paint!!
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used Gelly Roll metallic pens for the nails and tools. The tag is made from acetate and I pierced holes around it and added some faux stitching. The sentiment is stamped with Stazon. I used a piece of cardboard to make the ruler and I added the ruler ribbon with double sided tape. The pattern is from Mel Stampz. I changed the pockets from 3 to 2, as I wanted them a little larger than the pattern. The paper is faux suede from the Paper Company. Instead of using tissue paper inside, I used some pages from a book of house plans I had. The little tools are from my stash.
I am really happy with the way it turned out.
My daughters just loved it and want to give this one to their Dad for Father's Day.
Also, for the local ladies it is going to be a class at The Rubber Room in May!!
I hope you will be able to join us for this fun challenge this week.
Have a great Sunday and "Thanks" so much for stopping by...
