Barbecue Boss

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! If you're like most of us, summer is Barbeque Time! If it's not scorching hot & or raining, weekends are the perfect time to fire up the pit. The smoker grill we have is almost as old as I am, lol. I think I may have mentioned that hubs burned down the deck in a house we had in Houston w/ this same grill. We walked outside & a big chunk of the deck was GONE. 16' long & about 4 boards wide had turned to ash. The happy little smoker was sitting upright w/ the lid on, dead center in the middle of all the nothingness. I swear it was laughing at us. So while I like the idea of this grill master on the deck, around here, it will never happen again. That grill (& hubs) are not allowed anywhere near anything that even looks like wood.
For my Barbeque Boss,  I stamped & colored Grilling Guy,  then masked him to add the scene behind him. For the deck, I stamped The Floor  w/ a sand colored ink, then stamped the Woodgrain Bg on it using the same ink before I colored it in. The Picket Fence & grass were added, then I sponged in a cloudy sky.  Just a portion of the greeting was added on the little plaque. I put the entire greeting on the inside. It looked like still needed something, so I added a red layer & a red frame around Mr. Grill Master. Sort of a picture of hubs before he got schooled by that grill.  It definitely showed him who's boss.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
