Challenge 13 Numbers

Morning all.
Another week is over at Cardz4Guyz so it means another challenge. You certainly hit the funny bone last week with your Make em Laugh contributions. Pop over to the blog and see who won and see the DT's inspiration for the new challenge of -


Lot's of ways to go with this type of challenge but as Nich needed a card for Ben's friend Logan, I came up with this design.

Logan is mad for trains and when he comes over he has to climb to the top of the slide to watch the trains go by, so the theme was a done deal.
This Molly Bloom train has already seen service last year on Ben's card but it is great for 'boys' of all ages!
I used a 6 x 6 white base card and drew a line down the middle of the front then sketched a number 5 to the right and cut it out being careful to leave it attached to the left half!
I cut an oval of Nitwits paper (green with dots) and layered it over a piece of sky paper from NitWits also. The train was stamped and coloured in Copics as follows:-

Train - R32, 35, 37, 39, 89
Boiler - C0, 3, 5, 7,10
Lamp - Y35,38 YR24
Wheels and Buffers - C0, 3, 5, 7,10
Track - E30, 31, 33, 35, 37, W0,2 5

I fussy cut the train and mounted it on pads at the bottom of the DPs. The DPs after trimming, were mounted on red card and the 5 in more NitWits paper, then cut out to reveal the number. The inside of the card was covered in matching red card to make the number stand out.

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
Allsorts - No flowers
Without Words - Gentlemen only

Well that's about it and thanks for stopping by.
