The good old red white and blue.

Hi friends and welcome to my lovely new followers it's such a pleasure to have you join us,

There's a new challenge for you over at Creative Card Crew.
For this week we'd like you to use

The Colours Of Your Country

So any creation the choice is up to you.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights by Lou by Loo

I thought that Bryce in a Car would be perfect to use the colours  red white and blue

I took the inspiration to make a digi image in to a shaped card from the super talented Colette from 

It's quite amazing how versatile quality digi images can be. I took this one up to 5" high at the tallest point and the same at the widest and the definition is still good.

It said stop on the sign, in my graphic package I put a white rectangle over the word and added
 Happy Birthday instead.
I  printed the image on all the colours in a light weight 160gsm card and cut out all the pieces, in the same way you would put a die cut together.

As I wanted it to be a one layer card I used pencils to colour his skin and hair as copics would have gone through. I did use  B60 to add some shading but forgot about the white areas. It has gone through a little.
I'm going to keep this one as a sample and next time print the back first.
I used 250gsm cardstock but if your printer won't take that weight you could stick the image to the front of an A5 card blank and cut around it.

On the side view you can see the back. If you look close the fold is just to the side of the card which lost part of the bumper but I added that as an extra piece if that makes sense.

Thanks for stopping by have a great day,

Love cherie   //*.*\\
