Wind in your hair!

 Our Grandson Shane has a dirt bike like this one and he rides it with such speed and purpose!  This last summer we had a family reunion at Steamboat Springs - Shane, with his red hair flying in the wind, loved tearing down the path between the three campsites we had set up!  He was our courier, our communication source and, between him and his sister Aubry, our constant companions.  I could not pass up this Mo Manning image for his birthday.  
This center step base card I covered with blue DP, a simple knotted ribbon and three graduated enamel dots.  The sentiment was created on my computer.  I used Copics to color the image and the simple background.  A rectangle was sketched in and the excess cut away - allowing the back of the boy, his foot and rear tire to be fussy cut outside the frame.   A Copic pen was then used to color the edge of the panel and it was elevated on a piece of sticky back foam [from the Dollar Store] to give even more depth to the project.
 I created this for the new 613 Ave C  challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: Mainly Blue".  You have the month of May to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's incredible inspiration concepts -  click HERE!

Create wildly and color with abandon!

  1. Your card is full of 'vim and vinegar' as I used to hear my grandmothers say about kids with lots of spunk and energy and tad bit of mischief in their personalities! Too cute!! Thanks for sharing at PPCC blog! Becca/DT
