Bike Racer

Today is the birthday of a very special friend who is mad keen on biking. He has recently had an electric bike which he absolutely loves.

I found this digistamp in my collection Bike Racer from Digi Darla which looks the same style as the one our friend has. Unfortunately they have now been retired but it doesn't stop me from using the images if they suit the occasion. 

I used the latest sketch from Cheerful Sketches for the layout and decided to use the colour scheme of black, silver and white throughout.

The image has been coloured with Promarkers in mainly greys. This is one of those times when I am glad they have so many greys to choose from!

The card base is an 8" square. Throughout the project all the cards and papers used have come from my scraps. I have used a mixture of metallic, hologram and glitter paper. This use of different textures really helped with the die cut sentiment which is from Crafter's Companion. They are a decent size and really make a statement especially on larger cards.

Card Details -

Size – 8” x 8”
Digital Image – Bike Racer (Digi Darla Retired)
Paper – The Glitter Stack (DCWV)
Colouring Medium - Promarkers
