Racer Boy!

First of a double post today because I so wanted to show you this card but I've still to post my DP2 Challenge card too. Anyway, I'll make this a quick one so that I can get on with my colouring, given that I've a bonus day off work today.

Yesterday I introduced you to Flossie Bumblethorpe, a brilliant new image from Just Inklined, Jak Heath's new digistamp venture. And I promised you 'Albert', who I reckon could well be Flossie's 'boyfriend'!  Here he is, complete with go faster stripes:

Image: Just Inklined, 'Albert',

Papers: October Afternoon; Cloud Nine Designs.

I absolutely love this image - Jak and her team have done so well to bring us something different and humorous.

Can't you just see him, 'speeding' down the street, on his way to meet his 'girlfriend', Flossie?  I can!  I love the way he has customised his walker - what a brilliant bit of thinking, eh?

I coloured him up with my Copics, of course, and added 'glow' and grounding with my Prismas.  I thought all that metalwork would be a challenge but once I got into it, it was really quite straightforward. 

I wanted to give him typical 'old man' clothes (although I'm thinking of doing the next one with him wearing really 'funky' clothing - such fun!) but his yellow back-to-front cap shows his wicked side.

So, that's Albert - just wanted to show you - and now I have to get back to my colouring table, ready for the next post!

See you later

Happy crafting.

  3. Peri, You did a fabulous job on Albert. I had a ball coloring him too but just realized when I saw yours that what I thought was just wires at the top of the handlebars was a windshield. Now I feel a little dumb!!!Oh well, I'm used to it LOL.
