Fix-it Fred

Do you have a "Mr. Fix-it" in your life? We do....aka Grandpa (for carpentry) and Gramps (for vehicles). So nice to have a fun image to create a card when we need to say thank-you. I could mass produce this card for as often as we receive help :)

I colored up this Fred Bear image when I was in California at CHA. I took my multiliner and a straight edge of paper and quickly drew in some planks as a floor to ground him. After coloring him up I airbrushed (without masking) around him and darkened up my edges.

I thought it would be fun to play with some cork texture so I cut out a few Die-namics (listed below) for a fun effect.

I did color Fred first so that I could apply a rag with some blender solution for texture. The only "rag" we had on hand at the booth was a sweater like texture...but that was ok, I used what I had.
Hope you enjoy your is a sunny one here :)

Here are my Supplies:
