My Mechanic...

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. -George Beard-nard Shaw

Ready for another Elzybells peek? I am having a blast playing with these little Ted images...so adorable, err, handsome and strong! ;)

Another perfect image for my Dad...or my brother, the Mechanic Ted image is such a fun little guy!!! I colored this one (as I have colored all of them lately) with Koh-i-noor Pencils and OMS (Now Available at the Elzybells Site!!!!) You can't tell in this little picture, but I colored the wrench with a Silver pencil so it has a nice realistic shine!!!

I used last week's SCS Sketch Challenge for the layout and Marrekech papers...

I loved what Steph did with a pile of tires on her little treat bag, so I quickly masked a small stack on the inside...

Supplies:
Stamps: Mechanic Ted, Happy Father's Day (Elzybells)
Paper: Marrekech (Basic Grey,) Textures CS (DCWV,) White CS (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Misc: Koh-i-noor Pencils, OMS, Pewter Brads

Thanks for stopping by, come back tomorrow for anlother Manly Ted!! :) And make sure to check out what the other ladies has created!
