JAI #626 Mechanic Thank You


The warmth of Spring has definitely arrived this week - and is really needed as in Victoria and also here in Melbourne, there has been a lot of rain leading to floods. And sadly the worst is not over yet for many. It is good to see that these sort of events largely do bring out the best in people - communities banding together to help each other is so needed and so uplifting to all involved. 

This week at Just Add Ink, we have this fabulous Sketch from Di Barnes to spark your creativity. All the  design team have created projects of various themes and colours to help inspire you so I hope that you can pop on over to the blog and have a look - and we'd love you to join us too!!

For my card....I kept pretty close to the sketch in a CAS way - the two ribbon pieces make up two of the sketch elements instead of perhaps using layers. The circle element I left out. I did create a large tyre (with an alloy wheel)  but it didn't quite look right.

I drive a silver VW and have a black dog hence the Beautiful Ride set is perfect for this!
This card is to thank my mechanic as he did a rather big job recently. The heater/ aircon Core is located directly behind the unit and the centre console - so that means that the whole dashboard, every instrument and the centre console needs to come out. Then the heater core is able to be replaced and the car rebuilt again. It is many hours work so a card is the least I could do....

The VW and dog are coloured with Copics and the sentiment is embossed in Silver to match the silver ribbon and added sequins.
The Mechanic is a dog lover, with two dogs alongside him at the workshop - and he knew I also had a foster dog as well as my own black Lab when arranging pick up so there needed to be a dog included. 😊

Card stock: Basic Grey, Basic White
Designer Series Paper: Oh So Ombre (6x6 Retired)
Inks: Momento Tuxedo black, Versamark, Copics
Stamps: Beautiful Ride, Biggest Wish 
Accessories: Silver EP, Silver ribbon (retired), Metallic Sequins Assortment.

Thanks for popping by today! I hope that you like my CAS male thank you card and that it might inspire you to join us at Just Add Ink this week!

'Til next time,
