"Once upon a time there was a train...
DP2 has a sketch challenge this week which was the push I needed to get the image out of the sidings and into the platform. I've given it Card Candy red, yellow, green signal lights but can you believe I've got 97 varieties of card candy but no yellow! So my signal is orange.
The card is very simple, even though it's for a small boy I like to keep masculine cards uncluttered. The colouring is Copics, I've let my image spill over the edges of the Nestie die, sentiment is Lily of the Valley. I've no idea where the geometric paper came from, it's a single sheet of 6" paper, but it worked fine with a white railway fence made with a MS punch. My card got a thumbs up from older DS, all 6'4" of him, he remembers his Thomas days:).
My card is for the following challenges:
Digital Pencil Too - sketch
Fussy & Fancy Friday - card for man or boy
Delightful Inspiration - masculine, no flowers
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - what's on your work desk right now - the image was!
Some Odd Girl - manly challenge
