On Yer Bike!

Good morning to you all and a big welcome to Nicole my newest follower!  This is just a quick post as I have to catch up with you all then I need to get ready as I am meeting my friend for shopping and lunch!

Thought I would share the card I made for Dave's birthday on Sunday.  It was a real rush job in the end.  I was making it Saturday afternoon but when we went out for our shopping Saturday morning we bumped into a friend and ended up going for lunch.  No sooner did we get home than some other friends called round.  I had to rush up and make it very fast!!

Now Dave does a lot of cycling and goes to the gym.  I thought this would be an excellent image for him.  His bike is black and silver and his cycyling gear is all black so I tried to make it look a bit like him but thought that would be too much black so I added the yellow to break things up a bit!


The image is Spinning Sid by Just Inklined coloured with my Copics and Glossy Accents added to the sweat! The paper is Kaisercraft I think its called Travel and I have used my favourite SB Curved A2 Borders.  The gears are made with a Tim Holtz die and I sanded them to make them look a bit rusty.  Here is a side view:


Challenges I would like to enter:

C is for Challenge - Men and Boys
Robyn's Fetish - Use a Digi
A Gem of a Challenge - Let's Hear if for the Boys
Southern Girls - Sing, Sing A Song (Mine is I Want to Ride my Bicycle by Queen)

That's all from me today.  I hope you all have a good day and thank you so much for looking! Take care xx
