MFT Grillin Guy

My hubbys 35th(tee hee) bday is tommorrow. I got this MFT set at CHA just for him. He loves to grill! I used some of his fave colors and his fave food. For the coals I used Amy's smoldering coals HTDT. Mine didnt turn out quite as great as hers but Im happy with them and I know Danny will love this card! I also used another tip I saw on someones blog (prolly Paula's!) about stamping the steaks onto kraft with red ink. Doesnt that steak looks real?!?! I colored grillin guy with copics and used prismacolor pencils and gamsol for the frame. I even used my classic stripes background for this card. I think Ive only used that background once! I have seriously been on a side sentiment kick so I finished off my card with a sentiment and piercing. Have a great day!

Stamps: Mft Whos that grillin guy, Classic stripes SU background
Paper: Coredinations gray, PTI sky blue, PTI pure poppy, kraft, white
Ink: memento black, riding hood red, copics w1, w3, w5, w7, r27, r29, e50, e51, e53, e33, e35, b45, b37
Accesories: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, sakura silver pen (for spatula), dimensionals
