Club Anya & Friends - Wild Card Wednesday

Good Morning, Over at Club Anya & Friends today is our Wild Card Wednesday Challenge and this week is an Inspirational photo...


As soon as I saw this pretty picture I remembered these Basic Grey paper's offbeat. I tried to keep as much white as possible, bit tricky really and I've used REAL wood for the sentiment and Handy Ian's oval backing. I blended a little distress inks directly onto the wood die cuts but think I could have been a little more brave and made it alot darker! Like the wood in the photo!

I Know!!! check out this awesome Handy Ian and how lucky... as it's my Dad's birthday this month, yes the day after  mine LOL, and yes he's a builder/contractor and I used to help out in the summer (NO! not to make the tea!) so I'm well aware of the mucky paint splodges that inevitably happen!!! I tried to splash a little paint on Handy Ian, a little flick with watered down acrylic, tee hee! My dad also has a beard and not so much hair but I was sure I would ruin his face... so have kept it to man shadow LOL!!!
My card is based on Mercy's fabulous sketch this week, although I may have squished it, to fit on my square card!
