Having a play

I needed to do a card for my brother in law and as much as I hate doing cards for men I decided I would have a go.  He is into bicycles and motorbikes so was going to print off a colouring sheet and colour in.  Pretty soon realised that I didn't have enough Promarkers, note to self must rectify that very soon. 

I found a picture I liked and printed it off in black and white.  As I had enlarged it it came out rather pixalated (spelling?) and greyish as ink is low but it wasn't as problem as I went over it both sides with promarker. 

I had seen someone do a card with acetate, please tell me if it was you as I can't find it in the blogs, so I decided to try this but layer it on mirror card. 

The wasteland is actually stuck onto the mirror card and the bike and mud splats are mounted on black foam on the acetate. 

I can't take the merit for the mud splats that was my DH.  When I showed him the card he said it needed to show some movement and cut the mud splats out for me and positioned them.  I was going to put a Happy Birthday on it but couldn't work out how best to do it so decided against it. 

I discovered in doing this though just how hard it is to photograph mirror card without photographing yourself!
