Tyred Out!

Monday, 28 May 2012

Evening all!

I just popped on to share a card I made before I went to Australia and forgot to show - today is an appropriate day to show it cos the Monaco Grand Prix was on today!

I was in Australia with my brother who celebrated his birthday while we were there and as we went to the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne I thought I'd make it to suit that.

Here's my card:

I tried to model it a current Formula One Pirelli tyre, so my large Go Kreate circle dies came in handy!

The image is from the Paper Shelter's Giraffe set and I coloured the car red as we are both Ferrari fans!  So the stripe on the tyre was made red to match (which incidently means that this would be a super-soft tyre! :P )
I coloured the image with the following Copics: R29,27,24, YR24,23,21, E39,37,35, 100, C9,7,5,3 And Prisma pencils: Crimson red, Dark brown, White and Black.

 (He's got some serious flat spots going on there!)

I hand drew and cut out the wording with a craft knife to follow the Pirelli logo - I was making this card when I should've been packing so if I had more time I might've got it a bit neater!
The "Colin" is die cut using the "Tina thinks you're cute" Sizzlets alphabet dies.  I finished off with some nail heads.

And as an added wee surprise, as we were Down Under, so as it would be the right way up at home, it did this!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
