This project was created using the following supplies:
Penny Black: 40-296 Gardner, 40-113 Inspiring, 30-108 Bear of All Trades
Additional Products: Kraft and White Cardstock, Chameleon Alchol pens; Red, Black, BlueViolet, Flesh, Sienna, Grey,Olive. Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Dye ink Tuxedo Black, Potters Clay and Rich Cocoa and a metal accent.
1) Stamp gardner onto white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colour with alcohol pens and cut out.

2) Cut a shed shaped card from Kraft cardstock, stamp wood grain using inspiring stamp and Memento Potters Clay ink, draw in lines for planks of wood and nails using Memento dual tip marker Rich Cocoa and distress edges of planks with Rich Cocoa ink.

3) Cut a window and door on the front of the card, add scrap pieces of wood effect; use foam pads to attach to the window and roof and glue directly onto the door. Add metal accent as a handle.

4) Stamp sentiments using Memento Rich Cocoa ink and mount man inside the door using foam pads.

Did you notice I gave him some freckles?  The sun has been shining here at last, so felt he needed just a few to show that he had been enjoying the nice weather!

Thanks for visiting me today, I will be back soon with more inspiration.
