An Old Codger

Hi again,
Have you all managed to get your Father's Day cards / Thinking of you cards made? I was really chuckling to myself making this one. My hubby is an avid biker - has been since he turned 17 (many moons ago) and has been building a couple of bikes up from bits. This image just reminds me that when he eventually gets them finished - he'll probably look like this! (it was made for my children to give their dad).The image is Karens Doodles. I've used crystal lacquer on the wheel arches and tank, clear and silver glitter gel pen on the chrome work and a mixture of Promarkers and copics on the tyres and clothing.
I'm still chuckling now and hubby is dashing me a funny look! Better post it quick before he takes a peek!

Challenges:-
Totally Gorjuss - Card for a male.
Papertake weekly - ice cream flavours (mine is coffee mocha)
Creative Inspirations - One for the Boys.

Thanks for stopping by - your always welcome to visit.
Hugs Sarah x
