Crafting When We Can Challenges #37 - Slugs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails (cards for Boys)

Challenge 36 over at CWWCC was awesome.  The wonderful people who enter our Challenges are so talented and it is so difficult to choose a Winner and Top 3. 

Our Sponsor for this Challenge is the talented Kenny K from 

The DT were given the chance to choose their own image and I chose 

I firstly made a tyre tread template using my Craftrobo.  I then inked this with DI to make a tyre track across my card.  I kept the design simple (it is for a male after all) by inserting my image onto a background from CraftArtist, using the beach digikit.  I then coloured in my image with Copics and Promarkers using an Inkssentials opaque pen for the white wall tyres and highlights on the car.  The sentiment is from Craftwork cards and the gold bling is actually a crystal one coloured with my Sakura Calligrapher gold pen as was the border on the mat for the image.  The smudge you can see on the image is my finger, I always have to stick my finger on things to see if they are dry, they never are.  My finger prints are all over my cards, anything wet or sticky will have a fingerprint in it, guaranteed. 

 Now it's your turn to show us your 'Slugs and Snails' project it can be anything as long as it follows our simple rules.

Great card, love the tyre tracks. I always used to have smudges too, now I have a scrap of same card and put a bit whatever it is on that too, then test the scrap to see if it's dry, saves messing up the card, thanks for sharing at OLLCB x
