Best Dad

Hi bloggers!  I had a bit of fun with this one as tools make a great alphabet, don't you think?  I started with a piece of black card.  I taped the Gradient mask to the top portion of the card and inked through the die with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide.  This colour comes out as a sort of grey shade when used on black card.  I removed the taped mask and trimmed the card to size around the mask and leaving the inked area below the mask as well.  I cut a strip of black card to go across the border between the two areas, then added "nuts" by cutting the small hexagon from the Lavish Accented Hexagon shape and cutting the centre out by using the small tire from the King of the Grill die set.  Voila, it becomes a nut!  I added them randomly across the border, slightly overlapping them.  For the focal element, I cut the tools from the In the Tool Box die set out of tan card.  I used a saw, two hammers and a pair of pliers for the "D", a saw, spanner, wrench and screwdriver for the "A" and a saw and a drill for the "d" to spell out Dad.  I cut the word "Best" from the set and glued it into place above.  The card was completed with white, black and silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
