Another chance to enter 2 challenges at the same time, I must be on a roll :-) the really odd thing is that I also just happen to need some male birthday cards soon so I made the most of the fact that DH was on the golf course this morning. 

My mind was buzzing with ideas last not much sleep was had but who cares!

A 4x6 white card, a length of ribbon from my stash, a Sissix framelits diecut that already had some blue ink on it & a stamp that came with Creative Stamping (issue4) I used  a silver pen to colour the grille, headlight surround & bumper whilst the bodywork was coloured with a Denim Blue Promarker.
For this next one, another 4x6 white card, 2 lengths of ribbon, the same Sissix diecut that has been stamped with the clear stamp of Tim Holtz's old jalopy using black pigment ink & clear embossing powder. This is the one I am entering for the 2 challenges.

My third card uses another stamp from the issue 4 set from Creative Stamping, a different framelits die to cut both the white card and some blue paper. I've coloured the metalwork on the motorbike with a grey Promarker , a Staedtler triplus fineliner for the bodywork and the tiniest touch of red for the tail light! The shadow was created with the grey Promarker & then gone over with a blender pen.

And then, because I could....

an ATC where I have stamped the wheel (creative stamping issue 10), coloured with Promarker & metallic rollerball, die cut using a circle from Spellbinders, stamped the rope design at either end (also issue 10) coloured with Spectrum Noire pen and finally stamped COWES WEEK  in black ink around the wheel.

I'm linking this entry with TIOT and also CASology 47

Thanks for looking & any comments :-)
