Kenny K's Handyman

Hello everyone!I'm on a roll...4 cards so far this month!!! I have finally dedicated some time to doing what I really love.
Today I showcase a birthday card I made for my husband, Patrick. He has his own painting business and is also a very good handyman. I thought the Kenny K Handyman digi was so him. I'm also into dies at the moment and couldn't wait to use the apron and tools from Marianne Design. I wish I had a pegboard die but since I didn't, I made my own.

Copics used
Skin - E000, E21, E11
Shirt - BG000, BG01, BG05
Jeans - B93, B95, B97, B99
Cap - R22, R24, R27, R29
Shoes and gloves - E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Belt - C7, C5, C3, C2
Work belt - E23, E25, E29
Tools - Y08, YR68, C2, C3, C5, C7

Inside: each side has 3 papers attached with a brad
for all of us to write our birthday message.

The apron was made from denim.
I just cut a piece from an unused dress and ran it through my Big shot machine.
The tip of the paint brush was coloured with my copics.
 Materials and Tools Used: 

Sentiment: Computer generated
Miscellaneous:  brads and thin rope from my stash
Tools: Tim Holtz paper distresser, hole punch for pegboard
