Peddling Along

Morning all.
We've got a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz and this month as it's National Bike month the theme is:-

Bi Peddle Wheels

I knew straight away which stamp I was going to use, one of my first LOTV stamps I ever bought, Harrogate Stamp fayre I think.

About the time I made this card, we had Fibre Broadband installed chez Beech, so the OH had been getting things ready, moving his office around, so the printer had been off limits. Still, his laser printer is not printing colour very well at the moment anyway, the end results are not true, washed out looking in fact. When he moved the old ink jet printer out in his clean up, I decided to put it in my craftroom and try that but I didn't have a driver for it. It's a good job I had a scrap of NitWits DP in my bits box that fit the bill without having to resort to printing some off!! 

As usual, I matched my colouring to match the DP, using Copic markers, fussy cutting the finished image and popping him up on pads over a die cut panel of linen effect white card. The sentiment from Uniko was stamped in black on the DP which I'd previously glued to my base card. A few of the lines I'd lost by fussy cutting were added and that was a wrap!

So where will you go with this theme, we'd love to see your masculine cards in our gallery.
