Train and Colours

The Digitial Ink challenge this week is a colour combination:

I've used a lovely Crafty Downloads image which I resized to fit my card. The blue backing paper is a digital download from A Work In Progress but I can't remember which collection, and the stripy one was a magazine freebie. And I've had that one ages too so can't remember where it is from - sorry!

I've coloured the image with felt tips plus a bit of white gel pen highlighting because the colours of the backing papers are so strong, I thought that watercolour pencils would be a little insipid. I've inked the edges of the papers with some really quite faded black ink which I refuse to throw away as I've found that by dropping a little coca cola on the pad it revives it enormously! The red grosgrain ribbon is from my stash.

I've had a real busy weekend this week. For a change. Hope to be able to show you some of the highlights of it some point over the next few days. Which, incidentally, is also going to be a busy one and I'm out nearly every night this week.....!

  1. Yay you came to play!! I love this card. I love all little boy cards. I'm laughing over here at your "drop a little coca-cola" to revive your stamp pad. Does it make the ink smell like coke too? Yummm
