Isn't it a good thing that I'm now part of a DT or I would have no posts at all!! I've been so busy over the past while because of more wedding invitations - And I will continue to be as busy up until Christmas I would say as the wedding is just after Christmas.
In the meantime I have a small build-up of cards that I haven't blogged yet, so I'll take a few minutes now and show the card that I made for my nephew for his birthday a few weeks ago.
I saw this idea on another blog where they made Thomas the Tank Engine, but I can't remember where it was that I saw it, so if anyone knows let me know and I'll give credit.
Here's what I did...
It is an easel card of Lightening McQueen from the Disney film "Cars" - one of Ryans favourite films!
I googled the line drawing of Lightening and then printed it out 3 times - onto red card, yellow card and white card. I used the red one as the base card and then cut out the yellow bits from the yellow card (including the Rustese logo on the bonnet!) and the rest from the white card, I used Copics for the shading, the eyes and the black bits.
I then mounted the card onto an easel base that I made to look like a road. I attached a little tab behind Lightening with a magnet on it and attached the other magnet under the road to hold it up.
The sentiment stamp is Wild Rose Studio and the dotty stamps are Waltzing Mouse.
I coloured a chipboard 4 and coated it with some fab red glitter.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
