#31 His own transport!

Hello again, and the theme this week at I ♥ Promarkers is ‘Transport’. With this in mind, I chose this youngster leaning on his VW clutching a set of car keys. The image is ‘Mikey’, part of a set from Charmed Cards and Crafts, and I have depicted him as just having passed his driving test. He is of course, coloured with Promarkers.

For the backing paper, I created my own, making a light grey road with white central marking and then layering my own created tyre marks on top of one another before dotting with a few motoring signs I made on the PC. The ‘L’ plate was also created on the PC before I used pinking scissors through the centre. The sentiment, also concocted by my good-self on the PC, hopefully reflects our licence plates. Now please don’t tell me that there should be more stars on the European sign, I do know, but my excuse is that it is the same reason that cartoon people don’t have 5 fingers – it looked better. LOL. The mats are navy blue, red and silver mirri, though the one behind the ‘L’ plate looks brown rather than silver.

Right then, do go and browse the DT’s blogs for inspiration and see how they created their cards this week, then get out those Promarkers and create a card with a ‘Transport’ theme for yourselves….thinking caps out…. & I look forward to leaving comments on your blogs.
