Mr. Fix-it...

I know... I'm on a cute coloring kick lately... 
... but I can't resist these images as of late!  This is another one from the Greatest Dad set... isn't he awesome?  I know!  The artist's style reminds me of The Jetsons' old-school cartoons, right?!  LOVE it.


I know my dad doesn't coordinate his hat, shirt & shoes when he's working around the house, but my Mr. Fix-it is all matchy-matchy.  I should have kept the label of the hat white, but oh well!


Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, VersaFine Onyx
Other:  Mimi eyelets
Copics:  0, E000, E02, E11, Y20, Y23, E53, E57, E59, BG02, B93, BV20, YR02, YR04, YR18, G12, G21, G85 (holy cow!)


I like how I over-stamped the sentiment into the main image just a bit... ties it in without have to mat it and all that.  I've got another card I did that overlapped the sentiment even more... be on the look out :)  This is the last week that you'll be able to get these two sets... come May and they are GONE!

What do you think?
