One For Two Boys

Happy Weekend!

Well, Eleri had been back at school less than a week and she'd been invited to a joint birthday party!! The party was this afternoon, and she's had another fabulous time!
So, I'll show you the two cards I made - I decided to use the same idea for both cards, but Eleri wanted them to be different, so just used different colour paper.

The image is Racing George from Dottie Downloads - I've used the pre-coloured version, and added 3D gloss to the face of his helmet. I just cut him out and have added him on the card with glue gel. The flags were downloaded from the internet. The papers are Basic Grey, matted onto some grey paper, and inked around the edge with a black ink pad. I love the tyre marks - I just rolled one of my son's toy cars through the ink pad and ran it across the paper! The gems are meant to imitate the start lights on the F1 starting grid - they don't have green any more apparently LOL!

And here's the other card

I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:

Lollipop Crafts - It's a Boy Thing!
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes

That's it for now - see you soon.

Love, Andrea xx

Hi Andrea,

I love the clever idea of running over the card with your son's toy car...

Both the cards are wonderful - the polkas add so much to the cards. The gems on the top right look great.

Happy crafting,
