If you know a carpenter with a good sense of humor this QKR Stampede image is perfect for him, his goofy expression will make you smile!

With a plastic stencil I sponged on the checked background for the base to add texture.

Ink distressing with Ranger tea dye ink was done on the base and vintage photo on all other panels.

For the brick embossing (Tim Holtz/Sizzix - Bricked)I inked up the embossing folder on the section that is sunk in which is raised once you emboss. I made sure lots of ink pooled on the mortar areas, it works best to rake the ink pad over that area and the ink is very noticeable on the folder when you have enough. After embossing I distressed with the vintage photo ink.

A Tonic paper perforator was used to tool distress the edges and the curling on the corners was done by rolling the paper with fingers.

The measuring tape is a paper embellishment (unknown company) glued to the card with Aleene’s tacky glue.

The screws are brads from the company Forever in Time.
