Onto my card…… this week I have used a fabulous digi from Hope Jacare called Racing 1. As pointed out by my hubby I don’t tend to make many male orientated cards so when I saw this image I knew it was calling out to me. Initially I had intended to make the card in a British Racing Green colour but I remembered some cardstock and diecuts that I had in a Kanban kit that was a gift a few years ago and opted for red instead.

The card was coloured with Promarkers and I added some silver gel pen for the tyre rims and some chrome accents. The chequerboard background is actually one side of a die cut card from the kit which I have placed onto a folded sheet of A4 cardstock for the card base. The tyre tread and sentiment are both from the Kanban kit.

All in all, a perfect card for the male of the species and I am sure I will be using this sporty little car again.
