This guy is smokin hot!

he he he... sorry couldn't resist that title - How cute is this sneak peek of "Rescue Ian"from Greeting Farm? Just a shame he couldn't clean up before making an appearance on my birthday card - but he is still a hottie -


I colored Ian with my Copics, and including his smoke and soot - I then cut him out. The brick wall background is from Magnolia - I just colored in shades of grey my first time I was doing a brick red color, but it was just too dark and too much red - Now I needed a ladder... can you believe I don't have a ladder stamp??? (insert shock face here!) so I just cut one out of a scrap of brown card stock, then sanded to distress it - a fireman's ladder would be worn and used.
The pattern papers is the front and backside of a K I Memories paper. I doodled the edge of the yellow side, Matted the wall and sentiment with scrap red and put it all together. The sentiment is typed out from my electronic label maker. I added a button and small piece of ribbon to the corner that seemed empty.
Then I just had to have some fun.... I don't know where I came up with this but I used some scraps in the inside of the card - doodled and to continue the front "Just In Case..." Sentiment, I typed out and added to the inside "The Candles Get Out of Control - Happy Birthday!" LOL

Hi Michelle,

love your sentiment on this - my sort of humour ;) and your homemade ladder is fab and all the other little things too like making him dirty and the bright colours. Loving the look of the new stamps - feel another 'little' spend coming on LOL. xx
