Mag's Birthday

This weeks challenge at I love Promarkers is asking for cards made with the Men in mind.

I've made this card using an image from Walting Mouse stamps - Half Pint Heroes
and made it for my friends Birthday on behalf of his new daughter Darcey. It was his first birthday as a Daddy! Darcey and I had a chat and she wanted it to be bold with blue and red. Her Daddy loves cars and bikes so I went with the car stamp.

The papers I've used are from Doodlebug - Kraft in colour which I mounted onto red Card and Red swiss dot paper which I used with a star punch and then mounted onto black. I stuck the stars on with 3D foam to make them stand out a little. I also attached some red chevron ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.
I stamped and coloured the image and then I used a corner rounder punch and did the same once I had mounted it onto the black card. I also added a few Blue papermania gems and I die cut the Silver Happy Birthday from Mirri card using a die from Paper smooches. I used lots of bits and scraps - I hoard!!So these little pieces are great for using up my stash.

I used these promarkers and flexmarkers to colour the image in -
Man - Soft peach, blush & antique white with cocktail pink cheeks.
Hair - Raw Sienna
Car - Poppy, Red & Cardinal red.
Lights - Bright orange & Canary
Wheels & hood -Warm greys
I edged the image with Powder blue and also used some silver pen to add details and a white gel pen to add highlights.
