Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - Use a digi image
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle ($10 gift certificate)
Not sure about my photographic skills on this one, so my apologies. My card today uses an image from our sponsors, Digi Doodle called 'The Jockey-Lucky #7' and I did of course, use Promarkers to colour it giving the earnest looking jockey the Queen's racing silks. (Well, why not? LOL). I reckon he makes a fun male's card either for Father's Day or birthday - providing they like horse racing of course, and come to think about it maybe he would also do nicely for the Queen herself, LOL.
Not too much to tell on this one really I don't think, but I hope you can see face-less spectators either side of the rails as the horse gallops by. As you may have spotted, the winning post doubles as a rosette too. The grey to colourless 'crowds' and the winning post sign are p&c (my own files) & the green 'track' was cut from green textured Papermania card stock.
As for the inside of the card, I kept it 'manly-enough' by keeping it relatively simple layout-wise, making a regular kind of insert. However, the bit my father-in-law will not appreciate whatsoever when he receives this as a Father's Day card, is that the 'race' taking part along the bottom of this insert is all merged images (& you, dear crafter, will be able to appreciate how long that can take!!!). You eagle-eyed folk will also see that whilst it is still the lucky #7 winning, all the other numbers have been removed from the following throng. Well, they all can't be wearing #7 can they, LOL, & why add numbers to them as no one tends to remember those who don't win do they - they are merely the 'also rans'. Can you tell I love horses but not horse racing? LOL. The card is not for me though is it, and the FIL is interest in racing, so hope he likes it.
